Troy Broka, CRNA, Honored with DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

McLaren Greater Lansing nurse Troy Broka was honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the exceptional care nurses provide every day.

 The nomination submitted by a patient read: “Troy Broka, CRNA, took such good care of us. We had a poorly placed epidural and struggled to get pain relief for hours during the day. When Troy came on night shift, he listened to us, quickly assessed the problems, and I had relief within 15 minutes. He was genuinely caring and competent. He made a very frustrating, emotional, difficult day so much better. He was attentive to our needs and understanding when we were having any problems. Thank you for blessing us.”

Broka was rewarded by hospital leadership and co-workers, and received a certificate commending him for being an “Extraordinary Nurse,” as well as a sculpture called “A Healer's Touch,” hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.
