Nurse receives award for extraordinary work

The Natchitoches Regional Medical Center celebrated its newest Daisy Award winner: Claire Chester Wardell, RN of the Labor & Delivery Unit.

“She was a Rockstar,” Robert Richoux shared after the birth of his son at the hospital. “She went above and beyond for my wife. She was extremely helpful and supportive. Anything my wife needed she was there for. Everyone helping with delivery was amazing but Claire was the one doing the hard work. She was so encouraging during delivery. She knew all the right things to say to help my wife. Sure doctors get all the credit, but nurses like her are the true heroes.”

The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses honors the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day.
