According to the person who nominated her, “Susan goes above and beyond to make sure to accommodate her patients’ needs. She is always willing to do whatever it takes not only to make the patient happy, but family too. Susan is not just your typical RN nurse; she is a great asset to the VA Medical Center family. She is truly a gift to the medical field. It’s a great feeling to know that there nurses out there like her.”
Said Susan, “Working at the VA, I see return patients and always enjoy caring for them. They often remember my name and bring me chocolate.” She adds, “My greatest reward is when the patient thanks me for taking such good care of them and when the family compliments me on the care I give to their relative.”
MSN’s Carbondale Branch Manager, Shelley Zeigler, and Misty Stover from W3D presented the prizes to Susan, which included a Miller Spinal Health massage and a Houlihan’s Restaurant gift certificate.
Said Ms. Zeigler, “Susan exemplifies the type of caring nurse whose dedication to quality patient care makes us proud to sponsor the Nurse of the Month contest.”
