Stephanie Alonso boosts employee moral with her positive attitude and contagious laugh. She has even organized a baby shower for one of our employees who was expecting. She always participates in our events. She is a very caring individual and puts her patients first. When you ask her about nursing and why she chooses to come to work each day and continually give, "It's just what I do," is her response.
She is kind to staff members offering aid to those who are in need of it. She supports new staff members as well answering questions in a friendly way that helps keep the communication doors open. She smiles and greets people in the hallways like it is ingrained in her and she cannot help but to do it.
Her nominator admires how Stephanie treats each patient not as a number or a room assignment, but as the person they are. She'll get to know her patients and their families to build the bond between patient and nurse.
"We are fortunate to have such a wonderful individual on our unit, she is amazing indeed."
