Commitment to Excellence
Quarter 3, 2022
Letter from a patient:
Lady or Gentleman:
I write to commend with high praise one of your employees in the Radiology-MRI Department. I was a patient at your hospital on August 5 and 15 for three fully sedated MRIs. I am extremely claustrophobic, and the anticipated MRls caused me great, great anxiety. The scheduled August 5 MRls were aborted after I was sedated. The August 15 MRls were successfully completed after sedation.
The professional care and attention I received from Alaina Lloyd was extraordinary, highly professional and well beyond what anyone could have reasonably expected under my circumstances. She got me through the process. Please communicate to Alaina my great appreciate for her professionalism and great skill. With appreciation.
When this patient came in on August 5th, due to what I believe was his anxiety around the MRI, he treated my staff very poorly. Unfortunately, after we sedated the patient our monitor went down and we had to abort the procedure for his safety. Everyone knew we’d have to reschedule the patient and my staff was hesitant to work with him again knowing their experience from the first visit. Alaina stepped up and volunteered to be his nurse and as you can tell by the patient’s letter, she did a wonderful job! I had to be out of town the day he came in but I knew she would treat him with nothing but respect and professionalism so I felt confident her ability to ensure his time here went well.
I want to tell you about a friend of mine in the Pharmacy. His name is Eddy Garcia. When he first started working with us at MVH he was a man of few words. But after just a few months, he began to show a warmer side and started to grunt when spoken to. It wasn’t long after that we found out the Ed was a Cookie Monster. This made training so much easier. Now you must keep in mind that he transferred over from Wally World so he was quite a handful to say the least. But there was something about Ed that seemed to grow on you and you always felt relaxed and able to discuss just about anything life threw at you, he is such a great listener.
The skills that he brought with him let him quickly grow into one of the tech supports along with Tyrell. Together they kept the place
maintained. I watched as he developed the skills of compounding, learning and training of what it took to be compliant in 797/800 compounding. He became one of the best. Ed was the first to become ACT in our pharmacy among the techs. Taking it upon himself to self-test so he too could help the pharmacist check the medications before they left the pharmacy.
Eddy was one of the first techs to accomplish the I-Lead program for pharmacy technicians through ISHP. With all that
he has accomplished throughout the years it’s not hard to recognize him as a vital part of our team. He is Self-motivated, self-confident, honest, humble, funny, and so much more I admire in a great coworker. My only regret is I don’t see him as much as I used too because he is too busy helping everybody else. That is whyI feel like my friend deserves this award. He always has someone’s back!
Sawyer started in our pharmacy inexperienced but quickly showed a thirst to learn and grow, going from a staff member we all expected to quickly move on to being a committed technician who knew every aspect of her job and even helped to make changes to the clinics, Stock & Mixing shifts that improved efficiency. She strives to be friendly with everyone she interacts with especially with playful banter that makes everyone smile, I am constantly asked where she is if people see me out on stock runs instead of her. Sawyer is also one that will pick up extra shifts whenever we have need.
Ever since Lexi started she has strove to be on time every day and has excelled at learning the required shifts and pushed to learn the positions in the other areas of hospital pharmacy. Every time I have had people call in sick she has been willing to jump right in and cover the shift even taking doubles & weekends without hesitation. She often picks up tasks from other co-workers if she sees them struggling to get everything completed on a busy day. She always has a smile on her face even on the days she is struggling and seems to just brighten everything around her. Lexi is also always willing to suggest things that can help the group and leads those suggestions by example always seeming to flow with any change made to the job.
