The award for 2018 Direct Care Nurse of the Year goes to Emily Delauter,
Registered Nurse for 3A!
Emily was nominated by many of her department peers, with colleagues writing, “Emily is committed to the safety of her unit’s patients and staff
members by leading 3A’s Fall Committee and being a member of the
Skin Team. She models professionalism by being on the unit’s UPC
and NPED representative.”
“Emily is an invaluable preceptor, exhibiting true knowledge and
pride in her work, never cutting corners and always following up on interventions.
She models collaboration between teams to improve the overall productivity
of 3A. She demonstrates peer-to-peer accountability by freely sharing
information in a timely and a non-punitive manner.”
“Emily engages with every one of her patients in an unbiased and
compassionate manner. She will take the time to sit with a patient to
hear their whole story and thoroughly explain interventions and how they
will affect the patient’s care.”
“Emily will frequently volunteer to take the challenging assignments,
desiring to find a way to resolve what may be causing a conflict. Emily
leads by example and would not ask anyone to do anything she was not willing
to do herself.”
In total, 31 nurses received nominations for either Indirect Care or Direct
Care Nurse of the Year. Sixteen members of the Nursing Professional Development
and Education Council reviewed the nominations and used a grading system
based on Frederick Regional Health System’s R.E.S.P.E.C.T. values
to determine the winners.
Congratulations, Emily, and thank you for providing excellent care to our patients!
