Marquita Cannick, BSN, RN, a Labor & Delivery Staff Nurse, was recently named the January DAISY Award Recipient for McLeod Regional Medical Center. Cannick was nominated by a patient for her extraordinary care and compassion. To recognize those nurses at McLeod Regional Medical Center who are true examples of nursing excellence, patients, family members and co-workers may nominate nurses for the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The patient wrote, “On Dec. 30, I delivered my second child, my 10-pound, 11-ounce baby boy, vaginally after a previous C-section. My first child turned 3 in October, and that delivery was very difficult. … Fast forward to the pregnancy of my son, I wanted to avoid my first delivery experience as much as possible. “As a pharmacist at Walmart in Darlington, I would often see Marquita.” She provided so much insight and information for my pregnancy journey.
