SVHC Announces DAISY Award Winner

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Seline Skoug, RN, of the Emergency Department, was the September recipient of the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses at Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC).
 
Skoug was nominated by a fellow nurse colleague from the Women's and Children's Department for her role in making a patient more comfortable.
 
The nomination read:
 
"A patient arrived to the Emergency Department (ED) reporting abdominal pain, not aware that she was pregnant and in labor. The patient was afraid, overwhelmed, and alone with no support person available. Seline met the patient in the ED and accompanied her to Women's and Children's, while creating a bond with the patient. The connection between the patient and Seline was apparent, as they held hands and Seline provided labor support, breathing with the patient as she contracted. The nurse stayed by her side throughout her entire labor and delivery, while her ED colleagues worked together to cover her assignment. Seline returned when her shift was over to check on the patient with flowers in hand."
