2012 Shining Stars
Sue Schreiner | 2-South - A co-worker wrote: Sue is an advocate of veterans and veterans' rights. Every Veterans' Day, Sue is the first to thank everyone for their service and provide tokens of appreciation with either flags or nice plaques for each veteran who is hospitalized. I believe she does this through her own time and expense. She is a credit to our institution for her efforts to make King's Daughters' not only a good medical facility, but also to identify people for their service to our country.
Jennifer Devries | Emergency Department - A co-worker wrote: One evening I was in the ER for a torn meniscus. I left on crutches. On Tuesday, I came to work with help from my husband but had to maneuver around with crutches. I had no idea how to correctly use them. Jennifer saw me and took it upon herself to take her lunch time to train me. She showed me how to walk and go up and down stairs. This was above and beyond what she was here to do.
Tammy Scott and Amy Gray | Pharmacy - A co-worker wrote: Tammy has done an excellent job of battling a nationwide issue involving drug shortages over the past couple of years. To my knowledge, we have only had to delay one (cancer) patient's treatment by a couple of days. There are not many cancer centers across the country that can make that claim. Amy was working on a Sunday when she questioned a patient's medication. Thanks to Amy's alertness, any potential problems were taken care of promptly.

Kim Larkins | Nutrition Services - A co-worker wrote: It was a Saturday and I saw that my driver's license would expire Tuesday. I was supposed to be in Illinois watching my grand kids and wouldn't be back. We found out you can enroll online but I don't have a computer. Kim took me to her house and enrolled me on our lunch break.
Barbara Abbott and Patricia Whitham | Environmental Services - A patient wrote: The housekeeping ladies never stopped the whole day. They had cleaned so many rooms by lunch that I lost count. They kept going through lunch to get rooms ready for patients.

Cheryl Rice | Business Office - A patient wrote: I had been trying to get a prescription renewed for a while. Mrs. Rice said she would see what she could do and get back with me. The next morning I received a call and she said the problem was corrected and apologized for the mix-up. Mrs. Rice took it upon herself to help me.
Amy Hoskins | Social Services - A co-worker wrote: Earlier this week, I witnessed Amy helping a family through a very difficult time and great loss. She was with the family throughout the day, providing care, comfort, and support that our community has grown to expect from our organization. She is such a kind, compassionate woman who truly felt the pain along with this family. We are blessed to have Amy as a member of the KDH family.
