Two Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Wound Care nurses were recently recognized with the organization’s Trophy Fish Award for going above and beyond in their jobs by driving from the hospital in Crosby to a patient’s home in Crosslake to provide service.
Registered Nurses Maridel Anderson of Crosby and Pamela Beebe of Brainerd learned the patient did not want to come to the hospital because he was social distancing and concerned about COVID. It was Anderson’s day off from work, but she felt it was important to meet the patient’s needs.
“Our Wound Care Team is lucky to have such dedicated and committed staff,” their nominator wrote.
Anderson has been a member of CRMC’s staff since 2009. She has also worked as a midwife at Mother Teresa of Calcutta Medical Center in San Fernando and JCD Maternity Home Clinic and Philippines International Hospital in Angeles City. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health at Trinity College in Quezon City, Philippines, and completed the Nursing Assistant Course at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.
Beebe has worked at CRMC since 2015. She also held positions at the Good Samaritan Society sing at Western Governor University in Salt Lake City and an Associate Degree in nursing at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.
