The Tulip Award is a program to honor and celebrate clinical support co-workers for the exceptional care they provide in support of the nursing staff. The Professional Development Shared Governance Council at Mercy Hospital Jefferson selects these honorees each quarter from nominations submitted by patients, visitors and co-workers.
Congratulations to Deborah McNail, patient care associate, for earning the Tulip Award for the exceptional care she provides in the Progressive Care Unit (PCU) at Mercy Hospital Jefferson.
A co-worker nominated McNail by writing: “Deb provided bedside spiritual comfort to a dying COVID patient when their family was unable to be there. Through prayer, touch and music, she helped escort her patient to the next life. She made sure her patient was provided with all the spiritual comfort necessary. The patient passed peacefully during the Lord’s prayer. Thank you, Deb, for going above and beyond for your patients.”
Macayla Blair, patient care associate, earned the Tulip Award for the exceptional care she provides in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Mercy Jefferson.
A co-worker nominated Blair by writing: “Macayla is always great to work with. She has a positive attitude and constantly looks for ways to help the staff. She keeps the units stocked and clean. She always wears a smile, which spreads to everyone and is such an asset during these stressful shifts. Great job, Macayla!”
