Jennie Fischer, JRMC Registered Nurse, was named March Nurse of the Month. She has worked at JRMC since October 1998 and first worked as a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department beginning January 2010. She has worked on 3NE since February 2010. On the nomination form, there are several phrases one can circle when nominating Nurse of the Month. These serve as a character guide for the nominee. The phrases include: leads by example, listens with his/her heart, takes care of all the patients’ needs, goes above and beyond, excellent team player, knows the value of the little things and exhibits extraordinary skills and knowledge. All of these traits were circled on Fischer’s nomination form. Her nomination form read, “Mrs. Jennie is an outstanding nurse. She explains herself well. She listens and understands your needs always. Smiling makes you look forward to seeing her during your stay. Please know that she goes above and beyond just medical help.”

Kelly Thompson, JRMC Neurology Lab Coordinator, was chosen March Employee of the Month. She was hired at JRMC in August 1998. Her career began as a Public Relations Representative, and she migrated to the Neurology Lab in January 1999 as a Vascular Technologist Trainee. She worked as a Vascular and EEG Technologist prior to assuming her current role in May 2003. She still performs EEGs, vascular examinations, and a host of other procedures. Her nomination form read, “I have witnessed Kelly Thompson to be diligent about departmental costs, coverage and cleanliness all while maintaining high patient care. Kelly repeatedly engages her team with a positive attitude and leads by example. She routinely goes above and beyond her measured duties.”

JRMC would like to congratulate the dedicated employees who received this honor. We are grateful to have employees who constantly exceed expectations and go above and beyond in their positions, making JRMC a better hospital every single day.

Recipients of the JRMC Employee and Nurse of the Month awards are nominated and voted on by their coworkers. They are also eligible for the Employee and Nurse of the Year awards in May.
