Nominate a VCH nurse

Volunteer Community Hospital is once again seeking to honor one of its nurses through its annual Patient Choice Award program.
This award recognizes the level of quality care, comfort and compassion offered by nurses each day. Continuing the tradition of the last few years, the hospital is asking for input from the community, and one nurse chosen from the nominations will receive the Patient Choice Award at Volunteer Community Hospital during Nurses’ Week, May 6-12.
Volunteer Community Hospital asks former patients and family members to be involved in spotlighting an exceptional nurse because patients are the ones directly impacted by outstanding care.
“We are asking patients and their family members to provide us with the nominations because they see the little things that matter so much on a very personal level,” says Donna Barfield, Chief Nursing Officer for Volunteer Community Hospital.
“They know who goes the extra mile to make sure a patient experience exceeds expectations – and after all, it is the Patient Choice Award.”
If you or a family member have come to Volunteer Community Hospital for inpatient, outpatient or emergency care in the last year and you have a nurse you’d like to thank for going the extra mile, don’t miss this chance.
Nominations for the 2010 Patient Choice Award will be accepted until Friday, April 30. Nominations can be made online at the hospital’s Web site at www.volunteercommunityhospital.com/nominations.
Or, nominations can be e-mailed, mailed or faxed (as long as it arrives by April 30). E-mail nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail to: Lora McDonald, Marketing Director, Volunteer Community Hospital, 161 Mt. Pelia Road, Martin, TN 38237 or fax to: 731-587-9347.
