Nurses make the hospital go 'round
The Lutheran Foundation’s Circle of Care program seeks to celebrate caregivers whom grateful patients recognize as having positively impacted their hospital stay. Anyone in healthcare understands nurses' invaluable role in making a hospital go 'round. Their selfless devotion to around-the-clock patient care is the backbone of our healthcare service to the community. The Foundation was honored to acknowledge two nurses recently who demonstrate this dedication and left a lasting impression on the patients they cared for.
Sunny Murphy, LPN, works in the telemetry unit, and her celebration drew a significant and outstanding showing of support from her fellow caregivers. Some mentioned her kind demeanor, warm smile, and Southern charm. Sunny's colleagues were excited to join in honoring her, and the gathering placed Lutheran's culture of teamwork and camaraderie on full display. Sunny certainly captured the respect and admiration of her coworkers and patients alike.
Bonnie Maloney, RN, working in the adult observation unit, was also recognized with a Circle of Care donation. Again, the accompanying team showed up in numbers to help celebrate. Bonnie's recognition became a twofold celebration as she also received a Daisy Award, spotlighting her commitment to providing wonderful care that noticeably makes a difference to patients. The Foundation is proud of our fantastic nursing staff at Lutheran and appreciates the opportunity to thank caregivers like Sunny and Bonnie for their hard work.
