Jamie Weatherly, Director of Nursing at Suncrest Hospice is a winner of the Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty.
Jamie was nominated by Janet Moeller, RN Suncrest Hospice who shared just one story of how deeply Jamie is committed to the care for the patients she serves.
“Last week we had a patient who wanted to go home from the hospital to die. Her family was willing to care for her, but their apartment was extremely hot.
Jamie got permission to purchase a swamp cooler from our business manager and went and bought the swamp cooler.
Then she took it to the apartment and carried it up a flight of narrow stairs (in heels no less!) and installed it in the window. The patient and family were very appreciative.
When I came to admit the patient, the room was much cooler and the patient and family were very comfortable.”
Thank you Jamie for your commitment to those you serve.
Each winner will receive a gift card that can be used for whatever the recipient decides and an award.
At the end of twelve months the review committee will select the Caregiver of the Year to be revealed at a banquet honoring the twelve finalists. The Caregiver of the Year will win a trip for two within Colorado.
