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. The office team enjoys working with Parker and was excited to nominate him for this award. And check out some of the feedback from his current and recent supervisors: *Parker is very well-rounded surgically. 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 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

Kara was awarded the Daisy Award for her outstanding performance on her current assignment. This is a nationwide nurse for outstanding nurses, and while it may not be typical for an agency nurse to win this award, Kara has been awarded this honor. Thank you so much for all that you do Kara, we are so proud of you!

Ruth Rawlings picked up her first shift at Season’s recently and got glowing feedback: “Please extend our thanks to Ruth. I was told fantastic things about her skills and compassion as an aide by the night shift nurses she worked with last night.
Compassion, Care, Dedication, Honor, Kindness, Effort and Service these are just a few words that describe our wonderful nursing assistants. Join us during National Nursing Assistants Week, June 15-22, as we honor and applaud our Nursing Assistants who are true specialists in the art of caring. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to the patients you serve every day. Check out our photo gallery from our visits this week and thanks again for all your hard work!
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!
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
