Daly Hospital and nurses play key role in pandemic, thank community for support

National Hospital Week is following close on the heels of National Nursing Week and, of course, they have a lot to do with one another. This year, Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital and the nursing staff at the hospital and associated clinics have found themselves, like the rest of us, facing a pandemic crying out for a rapid and unprecedented response on everyone’s part. So this year, Kathy Padilla, RN, Chief Nursing Officer at the hospital, said that the staff felt like it was important to say a big thank you to the public for the way in which they have stepped up to do their part in facing this public health crisis.

“Ravalli County people trust us with their care, and we appreciate that,” said Padilla. “They trust us with their most vulnerable moments, and we appreciate that. They trust us to take care of their families, their friends and their neighbors and we appreciate that. Now for the last few weeks they have taken care of us by taking care of themselves.” She said that by following the Governor’s directive and the CDC’s guidelines and by staying at home, self-isolating and doing all those things that we’ve all done over the last few weeks, they were helping out tremendously by giving the medical community and the hospital staff some necessary time to prepare for a potential outbreak in Ravalli County.
