Jennifer treats everyone with respect.

Jennifer is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met.  She bonds with all our patients but especially with our elderly and those who don't have families. We recently discharged a very confused patient to a skilled nursing facility after he had been a patient for several months.  By the time he left, she had bought him several sets of clothing so he would have some when he arrived.  She has done this with many patients over the ten years I have worked with her.  She has gone to check on patient's pets while they were in the hospital and fetched belongings from vehicles in our parking lot.  Jennifer recently led the collection efforts by our floor to provide Christmas for two boys in DFACS. She bought everything and delivered it to two different locations on her day off.  She is so gentle with our patients and families. She treats everyone with respect no matter their behavior or level of confusion.  Our patients ask for her by name and give her name frequently as a great nurse on Press Gainey surveys and on leader rounding.  She is also an inspiration for our staff and everyone that interacts with her.  She remains unfailingly positive and cheerful.  When the hospital is in Code Red, she tells the ER to send them up.  The doctors know that she will have an answer to every question and will help in any way possible.   She does everything she can to make sure the floor runs smoothly and demonstrates a strong work ethic that encourages others to do the same.  I truly believe Jennifer is very deserving of this award.
