Four times a year, Rainbow recognizes employees who go above and beyond their duties. We call them Employees of the Season. Valerie Green was recently recognized for Employee of the Season– Fall 2015. This was her nomination:
Valerie took the holiday spirit to a new level this past December.
One of our pediatric clients was discharged to home care on Dec. 23. This child required extensive wound care and required a visit from the nurse every day. Val volunteered for the job so that the assigned nurse could be off for the holiday.
She went to the client’s home on Christmas Eve, even bringing him gifts involving his favorite super hero. She was able to get this client to relax and allow his mother to be trained in his care. Valerie did a great job of providing instruction, support and encouragement to the family during this difficult transition. Even providing Mom with her contact information and telling her to call anytime day or night.
Val, you are the best example of dedication to our client’s well-being. Thank you for all that you do, every day!
