Supervisor Ellen J. told us that Vera is a CNA of few words but her actions show genuine concern for her residents. She has a keen eye for knowing when something is wrong with them and has no problem informing the nurse.
Here is another group of outstanding nursing assistants who were selected by their supervisors and all of us at In the Know to be honored for their professionalism:
Kathy H., who loves working on the Skilled Nursing Unit at The Northwest Florida Community Hospital in Chipley, Florida.
Deborah A., an enthusiastic CNA at St. Peter’s Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Albany, New York
Tywand V., who treats her residents with love at Rockynol Retirement Community in Akron, Ohio
Antonia Z., who goes above and beyond at Gulfside Regional Hospice in New Port Richey, Florida
Vera O., who is a pleasure to work with at Mayview Convalescent Center in Raleigh, North Carolina
Kathy’s supervisor, Diana F., told us that Kathy goes above and beyond every day at work. She takes pride in her work and all her coworkers appreciate her. The residents love her, too, and she really cares about them. Kathy spends time listening to and talking with them. She comes in early, stays late and comes in on her scheduled days off if the unit is short. Her cheerful demeanor and smiling face play a part in making the unit warm and homelike. Kathy is a big part of why the residents enjoy living at NFCH!
Supervisor Stephanie G. bragged to us that Deborah always seems to have a smile on her face. She is enthusiastic and energetic while at work. Many patients have commented on how nice she is to them. Deborah is always available to lend a helping hand and does it with a true concern for all involved. If Stephanie were a patient, she says she would want Deborah to take care of her! Deborah has a very demanding job but she always acts like a true professional.
Tracey N. believes that Tywand exemplifies the words “top notch” every day in her work. She also exemplifies the mission statement of her workplace. Tywand has been a nursing assistant at Rockynol for 5 years. She started as a floor CNA and is now the scheduler for the entire nursing department. Even though her main duty is scheduling the staff, Tywand continues to make the residents a priority throughout her day. Regardless of her own work, if a resident has a need, she is out there meeting it! She truly loves all of the residents and her daily actions demonstrate this. The residents love Tywand’s caring attitude and all her coworkers respect her hard work and dedication.
At Gulfside Regional Hospice, supervisor Sheilah R. told us that Antonia concentrates on making her dying clients comfortable, improving their quality of life and providing opportunities for them to meet final life goals. Antonia is a professional, empathetic, responsive communicator who facilitiates hope and exhibits a non-judgmental attitude in her care of both patients and their families. She achieved CHPNA status by passing the Hospice and Palliative Care Certification Exam. Antonia demonstrates excellent customer service and is loved and respected by her patients, families and coworkers.
Supervisor Ellen J. told us that Vera is a CNA of few words but her actions show genuine concern for her residents. She has a keen eye for knowing when something is wrong with them and has no problem informing the nurse. Ellen appreciates having Vera on her team and says she is a pleasure to work with. She communicates assertively and respectfully. And, she is a team player. For example, she is the first one to start passing trays at meal time…not just to her residents, but to all the residents. Vera knows what needs doing and she does it so well!
There is nothing to say but WOW! And, thank you…to Kathy, Deborah, Tywand, Antonia, Vera and all the other dedicated, hardworking CNAs who make such a difference in the lives of their clients.
CONGRATULATIONS from the Team at In the Know!
