Extraordinary ICU Nurse Recognized at Mon Health Medical Center

Barry Fyock, RN, The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses Recipient

Mon Health Medical Center is proud to honor Barry Fyock, RN, as The DAISY Award® For Extraordinary Nurses recipient during National Nurses Week. Awarded to nurses quarterly at the hospital, The DAISY Award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s programs to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day.

The nomination submitted from one of Barry’s patients read:

“I had horrible swelling from my chest tube. My throat, face, and eyes swelled shut. Barry and the doctor worked very hard to push the air out. He held my hand when they fixed the tube. He was so helpful and kind when they changed the gauze because it was sticking to my skin. He took saline and made sure not to hurt me. I was very, very nervous in the ICU and he would come in and talk to me and tell me funny little jokes to help get my mind off the worry. I really feel he went above and beyond with my illness. He’s a very special person and I give him all the thanks and appreciation and they should too. He’s a very good nurse. I wish I knew how to word just how much he has done for me and how well he has taken care of me.”

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

Barry is a Registered Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit and has worked for Mon Health Medical Center since October 1996.

“Barry’s commitment to providing exceptional care is inspiring. He is a shining example of the difference one person can make in the lives of many,” said Krystal Atkinson, Chief Administrative Officer at Mon Health Medical Center. “We are so proud to have him on our team and recognize him during National Nurses Week. We are grateful for the compassion and dedication he brings to his work every day.”

Nurses can be nominated by anyone who has been affected by their care – patients, family members, other nurses, physicians, other clinicians, and staff – anyone who has experienced or observed extraordinary, compassionate care being provided by a nurse.
