Licensed Practical Nurse Paulette Moore received the McDuffie Regional Medical Center Golden Heart of the month for January.
Ms. Moore is a long-time employee who is described by co-workers as a skilled and knowledgeable nurse, who exhibits honesty, integrity and responsibility.
"Her thoroughness is a well known characteristic, and when she brings me a chart in hand, I know she has discovered something that needs to be addressed or corrected," said RN Barbara Stenger.
Ms. Moore's quiet, positive attitude relays to her patients a caring, comforting demeanor. She has communicated this to agitated patients who will listen and cooperate for her. She is a constant in the ever-changing world of nursing today, portraying an ethic rarely seen. Her amazing smile and kindness brings to McDuffie Regional the values and visions proclaimed throughout the hospital, according to her supervisors.
"I don't know which one shines brighter; Paulette's smile or her golden heart," said CNE Peggy Barmore. "Thank you Paulette for all you do and your dedication to MRMC."
Meanwhile, RN Tereatha Nwankwo, has been named as MRMC's GREAT Ambassador, created by the Georgia Hospital Association. This designation celebrates and showcases the commitment and caring that hospital employees bring to their job, community, and to the Georgia health care industry. The GREAT Ambassador Program, which stands for Giving Recognition for Excellence, Advocacy and Teamwork, provides hospital employees the opportunity to tell their personal stories about how they chose a health care profession, why they like their job, and what they like about working for their hospital.
"Tereatha is an ideal recipient for MRMC's GREAT Ambassador recognition," said CEO Doug Keir. "She represents everything McDuffie Regional stands for; putting the patient first."
