Six nurses at Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center (LJCMC) were among the Great 100 nurses honored by the Great 100 Nurses Foundation at the 26th annual Great 100 Nurses celebration. The event honors 100 great registered nurses in Louisiana and their contribution to their profession and the state.
LJCMC nurses Marguerite Breaux, Mary Lou Carbo, Charlotte Daigle, Holly Daquana, Tracy Robert, and Kelly Trahan were among the 100 nurses chosen to be this year's honorees.
"Without our nurses, the excellent reputation of Chabert wouldn't exist," said Rhonda Green, CEO at LJCMC. "The Chabert nurses chosen to be among the Great 100 contribute daily to the hospital's tradition of quality healthcare, and they are to a large degree responsible for the delivery of this healthcare."
The event recognizes exemplary nurses for their concern for humanity and contribution to their community and the nursing profession. Colleagues, community leaders, physicians, patients and nurses' families nominate nurses for the honor.
Nurse executives, hospital administrators, physicians, community and political leaders, family and friends of this year's 100 honorees as well as past honorees attended the event at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, LA, on October 24.
