Title: Medical/Surgical, Pediatrics Nurse
Location: Bucyrus, Ohio, United States
Linda Detillion, Medical/Surgical and Pediatrics Nurse, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in medical and rehabilitative nursing.
With an impressive professional history dating back nearly four decades, Ms. Detillion cites her involvement with the nursing profession was based on her own interactions with patient care as a child. At six years old, she required surgery to have her tonsils removed and the care she received from the nurses left a lasting impact on her. With this nascent interest growing, she first pursued the profession academically, earning an LPN with honors from North Central Technical College in 1985. She later received an associate’s degree in nursing with honors from the institution in 1990. Furthermore, Ms. Detillion later became certified as a legal nurse consultant.
Early in her career, Ms. Detillion provided her services and care as a charge nurse with Oakwood Manor in 1985. She spent the next four years as a pool nurse with the Mansfield Personnel Pool and then joined the staff of Crestline Hospital. From 1991 to 992, she was the supervisor of Heartland of Bucyrus Ohio. In 1992, Ms. Detillion began working as a private care legal nurse and consultant, eventually becoming semi-retired. In addition to her work in health care, she has made it a priority in her life to be involved within her local community, working as a fundraising volunteer for the Women of the Moose. She has also been involved with the VFW and NAPNES.
Throughout Ms. Detillion’s career, there have been so many patients that have surprised her, showing her that it truly is the little things that matter. In 2009, she survived three brain aneurysms and she was reminded of this lesson her patients showed her during these difficult times. She told herself what she would tell her patients to do: you need small goals, and when you reach that, you set another small goal. That helped her make it through therapy. Ms. Detillion would like to be remembered by her peers as someone who enjoyed working with everybody, who always gave her best and spoke up when she saw something was wrong.
