Spotlight-Peggy, LPN.

“I visited with a patient recently that explained to me how frightened she was to be in the hospital and how it was even harder now since COVID-19, because patients are alone. She mentioned that it can also be overwhelming, with staff members coming in her room and not knowing who everyone was because of their masks. I agreed with her as we were speaking. I asked if there was anyone that was especially kind to her during her hospital stay and made her feel comfortable, and she told me that there was a nurse that really stuck out in her mind – Peggy. And right away, I smiled. Peggy is an EXCELLENT nurse, not just to our patients, but as a co-worker as well. Every time you enter the unit, Peggy greets you with a bright smile. She is friendly, caring, and a team player. I could see why this patient mentioned her. The patient told me that Peggy checked on her often and many times would sit in her room and keep her company when she had a few extra minutes. It was these moments that made a difference in the care that the patient received at our hospital. I thanked the patient for this recognition and made sure to share the well-deserved comments with Peggy!”
