Why Theresa Was Chosen CGH Employee of the Month
The son of one of Theresa’s patients wrote us this note: “My parents had nothing but good things to say about the way Theresa has treated my father. But then, in late October, she went above and beyond the call of duty when she noticed my mother was feeling ill and weak and had chest pain with dyspnea. Theresa now had two patients. She not only got a very determined woman to seek help, she arranged for her to go to the emergency room. After Theresa completed her normal treatment with my father, she bought him lunch with her own money and brought it back to him while we were at the hospital caring for our mom.
Theresa’s manager added this: Theresa recently lost a 16 year-old patient she had been taking care of for eight years. The family had many needs and Theresa helped collect funds to assist the family with the funeral expenses. She is just awesome!
