Obstetrics tech Jamie Stout was the recipient of Mercy Hospital Jefferson's first ever Tulip Award.
The new award will be presented quarterly to an outstanding PCA/PCT/OBT or Surgical Tech for their extraordinary care. The Professional Development Shared Governance Council received 61 nomination forms and selected Jamie's nomination from Ana-Marie Pigg, a recent patient.
“I always had respect for nurses and doctors, but with this being my first ever experience in a hospital setting and being cared for myself, I never fully realized the impact they can have in someone's life. Jamie made me feel safe, cared for, and as though my life and my baby’s life were important to her,” Ana-Marie wrote in the nomination.
“She made me feel like I was a friend or family member of hers, not a complete stranger. She has made a forever impact on my life, and I will forever be grateful to her for making my birthing experience so wonderful.”
Jamie was presented a framed certificate, a tulip plant and a tulip shaped pin to wear on her badge. All nominees were presented with a certificate acknowledging their nomination for providing excellent patient care. Congratulations to Jamie and all of our Tulip nominees.
