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.

Let’s Talk about Organ Donation

It’s not a casual conversation, but organ donation is something we should all talk about - because the need for organ donors is very real.

Consider these statistics from the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network:

More than 100,000 people are on the national transplant waiting list. Every 9 minutes another person is added to the transplant waiting list. 17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant. Every donor can save 8 lives and improve the lives of 75 more.

In the Upper Midwest, an estimated 3,400 people are waiting for a transplant at any given time.

Nearly a year later, CHI Williston’s walk-in clinic continuing to serve healthcare needs

Being in the healthcare industry has been stressful, especially for the providers at CHI’s walk-in clinic, which opened last April. What started as a respiratory clinic during the height of the pandemic is now CHI’s walk-in clinic, which tends to everyday illnesses. Nurse practitioner Anna Wolf says she has seen it all.

“Earaches, maybe some colds that turn into sinus infections, some stomach stuff that seems to make its way around,” said Wolf.
