Gloria has been absolutely amazing taking care of my father/father-in-law. She has gone above and beyond to make him comfortable and to put the family at ease during a very difficult time. She assisted in getting us in touch with the patient advocate, case manager, hospice, and priest. She always communicated with us as to the status of his condition.
Her true show of going above and beyond was her willingness to assist in getting a notary to the bedside in order for us to do a living will and power of attorney. She did not have to help us so much as this is not her job.
Gloria has been such a comfort to us and an angel in a very difficult time. This time would have been so much worse if it wasn’t for Gloria. She is the embodiment of being a nurse and caring for the sick.
Providing patient safety is essential and we have been working very hard to increase and maintain one aspect of patient safety with the Bar Coded Medication Administration (BCMA). With an expectation of BCMA to be 98% of better, Gloria Padilla has maintained a 100% BCMA scan rate for March 2017.
Along with keeping the patients safe with BCMA, Gloria has received multiple Kudos given in our Nurse Leader Patient Rounding. While speaking with patients and family members, her sincere caring and providing above and beyond care continues to impact our patients in a positive way. It is a great pleasure to have her work here at Pearland.
Gloria is a nurse without prior intent exhibited by her actions and when you manage her up or applaud her, she states “it’s my job and I don’t need to be thanked for doing my job”. Gloria truly is both an asset and a blessing to have on the unit at Pearland or any facility.
