LEWES — Beebe Healthcare is proud to recognize Heather Campbell as the August recipient of the Living Our Values Every Day (L.O.V.E.) Letter Award.
Ms. Campbell was awarded this recognition for her exceptional dedication and compassion for one of her patients.
“In the hustle and bustle of a task-oriented world, Heather still manages to see each patient as a human being, and doesn’t let the carrying out of duties and orders get in the way of her patient care,” wrote Carey Murray, a fellow RN who submitted the nomination letter. “She keeps a positive spirit and always comes up with ways to really connect with her patients.”
“On one particular shift, Heather helped me with a patient who was expected to pass,” the nomination letter continued. “Both of us were busy with primary care on our other patients throughout the unit, but Heather took the time with me to spend with this patient, who was alone, as his family did not come to be with him during this sad time.”
“We gave the patient hand and foot massages with some calming lotion and made sure he was turned and positioned comfortably. I am certain this patient was very appreciative of all we did for him and our presence during this difficult time,” the letter said. “Thank you, Heather, not only for your physical help with the shift, but mostly for your positive encouragement and caring words and emotionally caring for this patient. You are truly wonderful.”
Through her efforts, Heather has demonstrated many of the Beebe values, including “build trusting relationships with compassion and kindness,” and “treat each individual with respect and dignity.”
