Roberta can easily be classified as “Commander in Chief” of the daily functions at the Inpatient Desk. She has adapted to the ever changing processes as we move towards further implementation of the electronic medical record and meaningful use. She has adjusted to these changes with a positive attitude, and has most recently taken on additional registration work. Roberta continues to coordinate all the inpatient functions ensuring we have adequate supplies and packets in place. She serves as a resource to all departments, physicians, patients, and visitors with a smile on her face.

July 2014 Employee of the Month Connie Wright
Through the coaching plan Connie has showed much improvement, and she is always available to the staff and residents for questions, even off the clock. She has flexed her hours and shifts numerous times to accommodate Hickory Grove’s needs. She not only gives great instruction, but also good explanation. Connie takes time to learn about coworkers and families to establish the best form of communication, and she is also a great supporter of community presence. She attends Continuing Education classes on her own time and sometimes at her own expense. Connie is definitely an engaged owner at Hickory Grove, she is not a renter!

Praise from other organizations about Val has been “Valerie is an exemplary employee”. There is no one better to train new employees. Val makes each and every person feel important and that is worth a lot! Val helps everyone that is in need. She never complains. Patients love and respect her.

May 2014 Employee of the Month Geri Bavery
Geri always has a kind and giving attitude; she is always available, and has been by the phone at all times to answer any of our questions. Geri stays late to help out in stressful situations and helps her fellow employees by coming in on her days off, as well as nights off, to lend a helping hand. God knew what he was doing when he gave Geri her abilities. Geri is a blessing to work with no matter what department she’s working in; she is a great nurse and a wonderful example to follow! We have yet to see her without a smile, a caring attitude, or an encouraging word. She goes above and beyond whenever we need extra help with deliveries in the middle of the night or on her days off. She never complains about having to come in to help or stay an extra 6 hours. We have never seen Geri get upset or mad about anything. She is a very dedicated, caring, and compassionate nurse, and definitely an asset to our OB department and organization! She is one of a kind!

March 2014 Employee of the Month Heather Ross
Heather does such an amazing job every day rain or shine. Every day she tirelessly works hard to ease the inner peace of many people who are on the verge of each wanting to end their own life. She never complains or becomes desensitized or becomes insensitive to their pain. She has made a huge difference in the lives of many patients at the Evergreen Center. She is very dedicated to their progress and stays by their side comforting with compassion for even the patients that are at times difficult to care for. In addition she keeps up with the monotonous paperwork that is required because she is passionate about our program, our patients, our team and our organization. She also never misses a beat when it comes to following through on things related to patient safety, patient care and satisfaction and on communication related things she commits to. She is an owner of this organization and pitches in wherever needed even when it has nothing directly to do with her assigned responsibility. I am very proud of the dedicated team member she has become.

February 2014 Employee of the Month Shannon Murphy
Shannon Murphy LPN has worked in surgery pre and post op for the last 10 years now. It is so easy not to know what she does until she is not here….then you do we ever. Shannon is a smooth operator. She makes for a smooth admission and discharge for our surgery patients. She is a skilled IV starter and resulting in much positive feedback from our patients. She is gentle, kind and personable with patients. She is polite and helpful on the phone with patients making them feel at ease about the surgical procedure they are having. Her admission paperwork is impeccable. She knows what we need even before we do, making for a smooth and efficient turn around between cases. She fills out the patient information on the anesthesia record making saving a lot of time. She absolutely spoils the entire surgery crew rotten. Shannon makes the department “fun”. she has a great sense of humor and it is CONTAGIOUS! Shannon is loved and appreciated by our surgery department staff…it is impossible to put into words. Shannon also is willing to help in other departments when needed. Thank you Shannon making each one of us feel special and making our jobs a lot easier. Shannon exemplifies the standards of behavior that our employees are expected to have effortlessly. She comes to work with a smile on her face, ready to work each day. She may have been up the night before taking care of her young family and you would never know it by the way she treats the staff and patients. It is frequently heard at the surgery desk on Shannon’s days off, “Where is Shannon” or “Shannon does not do it that way”. Shannon treats every patient with the same care and compassion as she would her own family. Her attention to detail and desire to make the patients experience as comfortable as possible makes her a perfect fit for the recognition of EOM. Shannon has a great rapport with the surgeons making them feel confident in leaving there patients in her care. Shannon also works on the OB unit when there are openings on both the day and night shift. She has the same great working relationship with the OB staff as she does in Surgery.
