CARLE RICHLAND MEMORIAL HOSPITAL: CRMH Honors First Sunshine Award Recipient
Carle Richland Memorial Hospital issued the following announcement on July 6.
Carle Richland Memorial Hospital recently rolled out a new way to award non-nursing employees for going above and beyond in their job duties. The Sunshine Award was created by the CRMH Rewards and Recognition Committee as a way to recognize employees for delivering outstanding care. This award recognizes employees who are engaged and enthusiastic about their work and take positive action to further the organizations reputation and interests.
The first Sunshine Award was presented to Lindsey Williams, Discharge Planner for the QA&I department. Lindsey was nominated by members of the Medical/Surgical staff for coming up with a solution to get patients who are dependent on oxygen home more quickly. The staff felt that Lindsey went above and beyond to ensure that the discharge process and transition to home was as easy as possible for those patients.
The committee presented Lindsey with a certificate and banner that will hang in her office for the remainder of the quarter, as well as a gift basket full of her favorite goodies. Her whole department was also presented with “Sunshine” cookies to enjoy with her.
One Sunshine Award will be presented each quarter to a deserving employee. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses® is also presented each quarter and is the program used to recognize nursing staff.
If you have had a great experience with a member of our staff and feel they should be nominated for one of these awards, please pick up and fill out a brochure located in all of the hospital waiting areas, clinic waiting rooms or in the CRMH café.
