The criteria established for selection of the award includes a CNA who provides compassionate care to patients and their families, provides exemplary service to patients and the care team, and exemplifies a continued commitment to nursing excellence.

Shelby always has a kind word. Patients love her. She goes above and beyond with her patients, and they respond very well to her. Shelby is the kind of person that I would want to care for my family. All around, she provides excellent service. She is kind, compassionate, and a great team player.” 

Shelby’s leadership team writes, “I’ve heard many patients and families comment about Shelby’s care, stating that she’s wonderful, compassionate, and really cares about what she’s doing. Shelby is always there for her patients and the staff, and she always has a can-do attitude, even on the busiest days. Shelby does everything with a smile and her patients always know that she cares for them.” 

Saidee-solo-edit.pngSaidee was nominated by a coworker who writes, “Saidee is a wonderful member of the team. She is hardworking and never says no when it comes to patient care. Saidee looks out for the overall well-being of others every minute of every day. She is often mentioned by patients as someone they would like to recognize and that they particularly cared for during their stay here. Saidee often seeks opportunities to help others and learn new things.” 

Saidee’s leadership team says, “Saidee is a leader and a positive role model among her peers.  She follows all protocol and safety measures. If she doesn’t know how to do something, she will ask so that she provides the best care to her patients. She is quick to alert the nurse if she feels that something is off with her patients, which has prompted quick interventions that have greatly improved several patient outcomes.” 

Congratulations, Shelby and Saidee! Thank you for the sunshine you both bring to our patients!
