Nurses the Heart of Health Care

If you want to see care in action, follow a nurse. They know a single moment can change an entire life, so they bring exceptional training and tremendous heart to every encounter. One patient at a time, they do a world of good.

Living with cystic fibrosis: challenges and advances

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a difficult disease to live with but management is greatly improving thanks to recent medical advances.

CF is an inherited genetic condition that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 people in the United States. A genetic defect causes the body to produce mucous that is thick and sticky rather than loose and watery. Instead of sweeping out bacteria from the lungs, it can clog the lungs and lead to life-threatening infections, progressive lung damage and difficulty breathing. The mucus also blocks the pancreas, which prevents natural enzymes from breaking down and absorbing food.

Supan Receives DAISY Award

Johnathan Supan, RN, CHI St. Alexius Bismarck Intensive Care Unit, was honored with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses ®. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care they provide patients and families every day.

The DAISY Award recipient, Johnathan, was recognized for the care he provided a patient undergoing open-heart surgery. The patient’s daughter nominated Johnathan after seeing how he encouraged and communicated with her mother during her stay in the ICU. Johnathan was still in orientation, but it was never obvious since he cared for her like she was his own mother, putting the family at ease knowing she was in the very best care.
