April 2019 Employee of the Month
Leah is an amazing nurse and patient advocate. She is patient and kind with residents and their families -always-. She is a calming influence on staff as well as residents and is determined to make their stay here as comfortable as possible in a loving environment. She truly feels for residents and is empathetic to both them and their families. She communicates with coworkers every day to ensure we work together and she is always approachable, even when the day isn't going perfectly smooth. Making the residents comfortable, happy and well cared for is always her main goal. I recently ran into a family member of a resident who passed away. She told me how much Leah made an intolerable situation possible for her to deal with, because she knew Leah was caring for her father the way she would her own family member & made several comments about how wonderful Leah was through his stay. Leah is a kind person who gives all of her heart into what she does as a nurse & it is always easy to see! Our facility is blessed to have her on staff!
I would like to nominate LEAH, RN for Employee of the Month! I think having an RN for Employee of the Month is vital since we are celebrating nurse's week and hospital week and they are truly the backbone of the facility. Leah goes above and beyond with our patients every day, she is a true patient advocate and not only is caring but also very knowledgeable. She is a great team player as well, always coordinating ancillary staff (especially therapy) in coordinating care and assisting with planning. Today she went out of her way to make sure our patients, who were struggling, got extra attention and all staff were "on the same page" when caring for them. Our facility is very lucky to have her and our days are just better when she is working! If you ever want to see Leah in action stop in during a meal, she is always sitting and conversing with patients and families and giving the little extra that makes her amazing!
