The following staff from pediatrics was recognized for their special care of a patient being placed in foster care: Kayla Conley, Meghan Dailey, Natalie Elswick, Autumn Griggs, Ashlea Harmon, Miranda Lanham, Heather Pauley and Cassandra Sergent.
The hospital can be a scary place for our youngest patients, especially for a child with no family.
Recently a young patient was not allowed any family to visit him and came with nothing when he was admitted to the hospital.
This group of staff members went above and beyond to soothe his fears and send him off to his new home in style. The staff comforted the child and provided a caring and compassionate atmosphere for him to heal.
They pooled their money and provided him with some clothes, a pair of shoes and a couple of toys to take with him to his new family.
Congratulations to the other August nominees: Cindy Adkins, Patience Brumfield, Sandra Cooper, David Hagerman, Teri Hall, Lissa Howard, Crystal King, Russell Lein, Jr., Dr. Shawn Reinert, Angela Shearer, Brenda Taylor and Neelima Yadwadkar.
