Inpatient Services Nursing Assistant Shanaye Howard has been named the newest recipient of Monroe Clinic’s BEE Award. Shanaye has been a member of the Monroe Clinic team for two years.
Shanaye was nominated by Inpatient Services nurse Janet Fenley. Her nomination shared that “Shanaye and I were providing care for a patient who lived alone, and her out-of-town family were anxious about her lack of support system. Shanaye lives only 5 minutes from her, so with permission from the patient’s family, she gave the patient her personal phone number to call if she ever needed anything. The patient and her daughter were very grateful for Shanaye’s assistance and compassion while providing the high level of care she always does.”
Shanaye received a second nomination, from a thankful patient, which read: “As far as I’m concerned, Shanaye went above and beyond with the care she provided! She was friendly, helpful, and explained everything as it happened.”
The BEE Award was created to recognize any non-nursing staff member who demonstrates excellent quality care, extraordinary compassion, focus on the patient and the patient’s needs and effective collaboration with other members on the patient-care team.
Monroe Clinic asks the community to help spotlight the extraordinary contributions of our staff, like Shanaye, by nominating them for the BEE Award. Nomination forms are available at Monroe Clinic greeter’s desks and online at www.monroeclinic.org/beeaward.
