“Over the past year, Janet has shown great commitment and dedication to the Cardiopulmonary patients of BGH. She worked numerous extra shifts to ensure that we could meet the needs of our patients, giving them the best care possible. She takes time to educate patients and families on the reason for the therapies we provide. She is an excellent patient advocate.
Recently, Janet completed an outpatient EKG. The results were abnormal, which lead to her assessing the patient by asking questions about symptoms. Janet then asked the patient to remain at the hospital while running her findings past a doctor. She reached out to the ED Doc and the patient’s PCP. The actions taken resulted in the patient being taken directly to the ED and ultimately admitted. Janet’s attention, compassion, and dedication to our patients are remarkable.
Janet is always willing to help other departments when she has downtime in our department. She has a strong desire to learn and improve her skillset in Cardiopulmonary. I do not know where I would have been in the past year without her work ethic, dedication, and integrity.
She is so deserving of this GEM recognition and we are so blessed to have her caring for members of our community.”
