Care Managers Betsy Liedl of Ironton and Deb Berg-Lindahl of Deerwood last week received Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Trophy Fish Award for going above and beyond in their jobs assisting a patient.
Recently, a patient asked to be discharged against medical advice because he was concerned about caring for his dogs at his home located 25 miles from CRMC. The two care managers jumped into action and took turns going to the house to the dogs out and feed them so the patient could remain in the hospital to get the care he needed. The ladies did this without hesitation and strictly in the mindset of ensuring that the patient received the care needed. They didn’t focus on the time it would take out of their day to travel back and forth to the patient’s home. Their nominator wrote, “Great teamwork, great dedication to the patient and great outcome for the patient!”
Liedl has been a member of CRMC’s staff since 2013 and Berg since 1990. A licensed social worker and registered nurse, Liedl earned her Bachelor’s degree at Moorhead State University and an Associate degree at St. Mary’s Junior College. Berg holds a Bachelor’s degree in social work and psychology from St. Cloud State University and an Associate degree in social services from Golden Valley Lutheran College.
