Early this month, Wyoming Medical Center nominated Herndon as our 2019 nominee for the Norman S. Holt Award for Nursing Excellence. The Wyoming Hospital Association gives the award to one Wyoming nurse each year at its annual convention. Though Herndon wasn’t the statewide winner, she was an outstanding representative for WMC.
“Kay’s compassion for patients and family members stands out as one of the best. She cares for
patients from cradle to grave,” wrote WMC Chief Nursing Officer Connie Coleman, R.N., in her nomination letter. “We have seen her hold the hand of the patient who is taking his
last breath, while coaching the next patient through a crisis.”
