    Chris Robeen is Employee of the Month

    • June 2, 2017
    Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Chris Robeen. He is a registered nurse in the Emergency Department and has been employed at Passavant six years. His nomination from a grateful co-worker read, “One day when the ED was overflowing and stress levels high, a young girl came in with an arm injury. Chris was the triage nurse. During the process of vitals, x-rays and conversation, Chris determined this young lady was the victim of bullying at school. Chris, as he always does, sympathized with his patient. He promised to be there for her if she ever needed help and/or felt she had nowhere else to turn. To me, this could have very well been a turning point in this girl’s life. Just knowing she has someone willing to listen and help could make all the difference. The girl had a broken arm, but ended up with a new friend on her team.” As a registered nurse in the Emergency Department, Chris is responsible for the management of patient care. Chris and his wife, Shanda, are the parents of three children, Wynter, Owen and Clay. The family resides in White Hall. The Employee of the Month at Passavant receives eight hours off with pay, an Employee of the Month plaque, a close parking space for one month, gift cards for the Cafeteria and Gift Shop, a movie gift card, pen and pencil set, picnic blanket, flashlight/tool kit, Mason jar cup, umbrella, small cooler, lunch sack, drawstring tote, water bottle, notepad, flashlight key ring, coffee mug, and cup.

    Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

    • May 17, 2017
    Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
