Marquita got a resounding compliment from another nurse on the care team for her regular home care client.  Thank you so much Marquita for exemplifying what home care is all about.  See below for the feedback we received from another nurse, and thank you again! I visited with the home care client last Friday for a morning routine share day with Marquita. She is absolutely wonderful. Our time together with the client was such a great experience. Her and the client have a touching bond. She was professional, knowledgeable, and took passion in her care. Marquita knew the routine inside and out. She went above and beyond helping to clean, do … Continued

A big shout out to Kim Earnest who was complimented by her ADON recently:  “The ADON mentioned how flexible Kim was he other day when asked to flat to MS, she really appreciated Kim’s demeanor and professionalism.”  Being flexible is important when you’re an agency clinician, but its not always the best news when you’re asked to float.  Thank you, Kim, for handing it so well and standing out for being great!

Kudos Kandice!

We got a great message about Kandice and how her great job saved a pt receiving an order to which they were allergic:  “Kandice King did a particularly good job.  She weaned sedation off for a patient in one room (unusual on night shift).  More importantly, in bed 1, the pt developed a wide complex tachycardia and became unstable, BP 60s/40s.  Amiodarone was ordered.  The loading dose was mixed, primed and almost given but Kandice stopped the nurse at the bedside and said, “Wait, I think this pt has an allergy to amiodarone.”  The patient had lung toxicity to amiodarone.  They ordered another antiarrhythmic instead.” Way to go Kandice!  Thank you for … Continued
