Since the pandemic began, CAMC’s virology lab has processed hundreds of thousands of COVID tests.
According to her nomination, “Michelle Farren was one of the few technologists to have the training, expertise of the coronavirus testing and one of the only techs who could perform the testing in-house when the pandemic started.”
“Michelle has spent 20+ hour days in the virology department making sure every COVID specimen is run as quickly as possible,” according to the nomination. “Michelle has worked from March 2020 every day with no days off to ensure that patients’ results in and out of our hospital were reported quickly and called to medical professionals.”
The nomination concluded saying Farren “is one of the most kindhearted and selfless persons in the laboratory.”
