BHMC-Drew County LPN awarded the prestigious DAISY Award®


Baptist Health Medical Center - Drew County is proud to announce the recipient of the DAISY Award® for this quarter is Ruthie Griffin, LPN.

Her nomination story read, “During my gallbladder surgery, Ruthie administered my IV with such skill and compassion, turning what could have been a daunting experience into a comfortable one. As we conversed, she shared a heartwarming story about helping a little girl with a foreign body removal years ago. To my surprise, that girl turned out to be me. It was incredibly touching to reconnect with the nurse who had once cared for me as a child. Ruthie’s dedication to her patients is truly remarkable, and I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this recognition”

“Ms. Ruthie has a servant's heart. She goes above and beyond for our patients and her fellow co-workers. She is well known in this community for being a kind and loving nurse to everyone. She never meets a stranger and is always willing to go the extra mile to provide the best care to her patients. She is the best!” said Jana Webb, Director of Surgical Services.
