Illinois nurse that helped save co-workers daughter wins DAISY AwardEricka Krefting, RN
Ericka Krefting, RN, of the ED at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, Ill., received a DAISY Award in August. She was nominated by a fellow nurse at the hospital whose daughter had stopped breathing and was brought into the ED Aug. 1.
Her nominator wrote that Krefting is not only my co-worker but one of the most compassionate and excellent nurses in existence. She cared for my baby girl and she also cared for me and my family. She helped keep my daughter alive and breathing and even made her smile.
The girls sister also was upset and crying and Krefting made her smile and laugh. She put my family at ease, and trust me, that wasnt easy, the nominator wrote.
