clinical WOW Award Recipient
for the Month of July is
Barbara Hartnett, RN – SBU. Barbara has been with LBH since 2003. Her nominator states “I was
pulled to her unit for a shift, and was oriented by Barb for four hours.
At midnight, I should’ve had to switch assignments and take new
patients. Barbara told me to keep my assignment and instead she took new
patients, totally 12 patients. When I told her, I’d take some of
her patients from her, she said no, you don’t normally work here,
and you did us a favor by coming to work tonight. She went above and beyond
to make a co-worker feel comfortable in her work environment, answered
multiple questions, never seemed overburdened or annoyed. True professional!
She is a credit to her unit and to LBH.’’ Another nominator
states, “Barb is one of the kindest, compassionate nurses that we
have. She worked in other areas of the hospital and the patients loved
her. She is always willing to help out whenever needed. I was standing
in the hallway on SBH and overheard her talking to one of the female patients
as if the patient was her family member. Genuinely excellent patient care.
No matter how busy her night was she always has a smile for patients and
staff.” Thank you, Barb, for your unfaltering dedication to your
work and service to your patients and co-workers. You truly are an example
