|Abby Flores of Waverly, admissions, was recognized for the value of Compassion. Abby’s actions were acknowledged in an email from a mother who had a child in the emergency department. Her nominator stated, “I just wanted to say a special thank you to one of your employees. Her name is Abby and she is an admission representative in the ED. She was working when I had to go there unexpectedly. She was so thoughtful and helpful. Her attitude and help made a difficult situation much easier.”|
|Tami Schneider of Shell Rock, surgery, was recognized for the value of Enthusiasm. Her nominator commented, “Tami exemplifies the value of enthusiasm with her optimistic attitude and smiling face. She is always willing to come in extra for GYN surgical cases, even on her day off. She continues to strengthen her surgical skills and welcomes all feedback so that she can improve as a first assist. She always makes the entire surgical staff feel well prepared and ready to face any challenges that may arise. She makes surgeries safer with her attention to even the smallest details. Surgery is more enjoyable with her dedication and positive attitude.”|
|Kristin Hicok of Plainfield, women’s clinic, was recognized for the value of Excellence. Her nominator wrote, “Kristin exemplifies the value of excellence as she is always going above and beyond her regular duties in the Women’s Clinic in regards to training new nursing staff, taking on new assignments and responsibilities, and in keeping the entire staff up to date on current processes. She is committed to providing our patients with the best possible care and her dedication and hard work demonstrate her excellence as a nurse everyday.”|
