Thank you so much to Tynita Nance who helped out in a big way! Another CMS Care Provider didn’t have a way to get to a shift, and Tynita graciously agreed to pick the person up on her way in to work. This sort of selfless team work embodies the CMS spirit, and we are so appreciative to have you on our team, Tynita. Keep up the great work!
Many travelers find the most exciting thing about starting a new travel assignment is getting your schedule and planning your activities. It is not uncommon for the nurse manager on your floor to have your schedule done for your first few weeks by the time you hit hospital orientation; after all, you are there to fill a need. In fact, you can often start working on the schedule over the phone once they make an offer! Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want Most people are generally good about scheduling travelers fairly; meaning not every weekend or spreading your days out (especially on night shift) but this doesn’t … Continued

Please join me in giving some props and celebrating January’s clinician of the month – Parker Barrett! After extensive schooling, clinical rotations, and a stint with University of MD, Parker joined the CMS team back in June of 2017 and has been on assignment (multiple very successful assignments I might add) with Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

He goes into any case with a positive attitude and the ability to assist the surgeon. He is truly a great … Continued
Awesome work by Angela Land, who was commended recently about her attention to detail during a surgical procedure. Angela noticed that a retractor listed as having 4 screws actually had 6. At the end of the procedure one of the screws was not accounted for, and Angela’s earlier correction of how many screws there should have been helped make sure the team knew a screw had to be found. The team followed standard work for incorrect counts and the missing screw was located. The case concluded with a proper final count of supplies/equipment. Great work Angela, who was an example of several safe behaviors: paying attention to detail, having a … Continued

Marquita knew the routine inside and out. She went above and beyond helping to clean, do … Continued
