Marna Bulman, RN, Recognized by WRMC for Extraordinary Care

October 23, 2017

Watertown Regional Medical Center (WRMC) recently honored Surgery Nurse Marna Bulman with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses – an award that recognizes the positive impact nurses have on patients every day.

Marna was nominated by surgery co-worker, Patrick Vohen, RN, who said, “I watch Marna day after day give the same stellar care. She always watches out for patients’ privacy, safety and makes sure she talks to them in a calm manner. I watched her work with educating a student and never miss a beat in the patient’s care.  The patient knew at all times what was going on which gave her a feeling of power over her healthcare decisions. She shines all the time”.

“Marna is the perfect example of an associate that lives our mission and vision” said Isabelle Garibaldi, WRMC’s Chief Nursing Officer. “Her patient care is kind, compassionate and consistent, and we are proud to present her with the DAISY award to recognize the positive impact she has on patients as well as our associates.”  

The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, CA, and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in 1999 from an 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 patients and their families. Today, the DAISY Award honors extraordinary nursing care in over 2,400 healthcare facilities in all 50 states and 15 countries.
