Coffee Regional Medical Center is proud to honor staff members who have been recognized by patients, families or co-workers for their outstanding work to assist in the care of our patients and guests. When it comes to quality patient care, it truly takes teamwork, and The BEE Award recognizes the extraordinary work of non-nursing staff. This award complements The DAISY Award, which recognizes outstanding service and care by our nursing staff.
Recently, CRMC recognized honorees for both the first quarter and second quarter 2020. The BEE Award recipients for the first quarter, 2020, are EMS Team, Mr. Mike Revels, and Mr. Andrew Waldron. After responding to a house fire in late 2019, they discovered a child left with nothing more than the clothes in which he was sleeping. Touched by the situation, they decided to personally purchase the child some essentials. They were nominated by their co-workers, who indicated that this was a great example of the compassionate men they both are.
For the second quarter 2020, the honoree is Trudy Jarrad. Trudy is a Patient Care Tech in the Intensive Care Unit. A patient’s family member nominated her, saying, “Trudy was absolutely wonderful to my father as well as my mother when she stayed with him around the clock for two weeks. The level of compassion we were shown was above and beyond anything we could have expected. Not only was she concerned about my father’s well-being, but she also took the time to care for my mother and make sure she was resting and eating.”
Both of the above stories are examples of what it means to go above and beyond with patient care. We are so proud to have all of three of these individuals on our team, caring for our community, and receiving these very-deserved recognitions. All non-nurse members of the Coffee Regional Medical Center staff qualify for The BEE Award. Nominations are gathered each month and awarded every quarter. Members of The BEE Award committee choose the award recipient. Each honoree receives a certificate that reads: “This award is proudly presented in recognition of going BEE-yond in showing our patients & visitors an Exceptional Experience here at Coffee Regional Medical Center.” Additionally, honorees receive a unique BEE Award pin for their badge, a $50 gift certificate, and a reception with their colleagues featuring freshly made honey buns as a sweet treat.
