Way to go Winners
Sokham Am, Systems Analyst, Information Services Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
Recently Sokham handled a very large project with IS and Compliance to improve the data in the Security Audit Manager (SAM) database. The project was significant, complex and required extra planning to ensure proper data validation occurred. Am put in the extra time and effort to make sure we handled validations the right way and personally oversaw the process. We recognize him for his skill, pleasant nature, team spirit and constant hard work/effort without complaint.
Dietrich Kulze, Psych Triage Clinician, Psych Triage, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
A mother of a patient wrote in to explain how Dietrich was called in to see her son, stating that he was wonderful with her son and very reassuring to her and her daughter. He explained her son's symptoms and urged him to seek treatment before the symptoms escalated further. He took Kulze's advice and entered a treatment facility. The mother expressed her gratitude that Kulze was called when her son came in for help saying he had the perfect approach to get through to her son.
Ed Lezott, Lead Materials Distribution Coordinator, Materials Management, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
Recently, Ed did a great job ensuring departments had what they needed, especially surrounding a saline shortage and decrease in other supplies. Lezott always is proactive, bringing any potential supply issues to light ahead of time to find a way to address the situation before it escalates.
Kim Raposo, Pharmacy Technician, Pharmacy, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
Kim went out of her way to do all the returns from other shifts that had accumulated. Not only did she do her own job, she also cleaned up other shifts duties. Raposo steps up on every occasion when needed. Also, she was recently doused with a cup of water by a patient and kept a great attitude, simply telling the patient not worry about it and calmly returned to work.
Carmen Valeri, Sous Chef, Food Service, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
A coworker noticed that Carmen had come from the kitchen into the cafeteria to get a coffee. There were visitors, actually family members of an ICU patient in the coffee room too. The visitors were unsure of the 'coffee process' so Valeri was so patient and helpful, explaining the different types of coffee and where to get the cream and sugar. Although he does not normally interact with patients and visitors, the coworker was astounded by his compassion. The family had a lot going on and this small gesture may have made a difference to them.
