The Employee of the Month recognition is awarded for the amazing work that an employee performs above and beyond their normal work responsibilities, which aligns directly with any of our five cornerstones: People, Quality, Service, Growth and Finance. The Employee of the Month receives a $50 American Express gift card, $100 from the Medical Staff, an Employee of the Month pin, a framed certificate and parking onsite for the month. Employees of the month are also considered for the Employee of the Year recognition. Employees of the Year are selected by the Rewards & Recognition Committee and receive one week of paid time off and $1,000.
Nomination forms for Employee of the Month may also be picked-up in the Human Resources Office at either Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford or Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Employee of the Month - Janine McGrath, Assistant Professor, Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing and Radiography Programs
Janine goes above and beyond for her students. They often praise her for her ability to relate to them, encourage them and make them comfortable in the clinical setting. Janine is able to keep the class engaged and relates all her lectures to real situations and stresses patient safety. Even at the last minute she was able to step in for another professor and complete a quality lecture with very little time to prepare. As one student said, “Overall my experience with Janine was awesome I will never forget what I learned from her. She is very professional and intelligent, an extremely great instructor.”
Recently a new student clinical-setting orientation was held and Janine prepared numerous samples of work for them to become familiar with what would be expected of them. No one was aware that she was preparing these documents and the team was surprised and delighted to see her work as she shared them with the new students. It was a delight to have such a helpful team member.
Janine has worked hard to master item writing (test preparation) since beginning her work with Lawrence Memorial/Regis College. She becomes an extra exam writer each semester and the questions she develops are showing improved test statistics as her work improves.
Janine is a tutor for evening students and spends many hours working with them in small groups and individually to ensure they have success when testing. One student remarked, “I already have a degree. Janine is the best professor I have ever had. Always makes learning fun. Students in previous years remember her for years to come. She is a legacy and such a fun positive person to be around. She could teach a lecture on rocks and make it interesting.”
