These employees received PEACE (Patient Experience Award for Caring and Excellence) recognition for going above and beyond to meet patients’ and families’ needs.
A team from the Saint Raphael Campus Emergency Department was recognized for providing compassionate, patient-centered care to a married couple with COVID-19. When the husband was admitted with breathing difficulties, his wife, who was on home hospice, was transported to the SRC with him. Kerri Maciejko, RN
; Katja Goldflam, MD
, ED attending; and Maria Herrera, RN
, ED charge nurse, collaborated with the Medical Intensive Care Unit team to ensure the couple could be assigned to a joint room so they could be together during their hospital stay.
All employees, physicians and volunteers are eligible for the monthly PEACE award. Send nominations to PEACEaward@ynhh.org.
