Why Rachel Was Chosen CGH Employee of the Month

Rachel has worked at CGH Medical Center for many years but she truly found her calling when she became a nurse.  On Friday, May 10, she was in the ED and took care of an end-stage lung cancer patient here for pain control.  Rachel was wonderful with the patient and his family.  
She was so concerned for him that she stayed 1½ hours past her shift to ensure his pain was controlled and to set him up with hospice care upon discharge.  The patient and his family were so grateful for her efforts to allow him to be in the comfort of his own home during this time in his life.  Rachel is always recognized for her extraordinary efforts in taking care of hospice patients.  She has again, gone above and beyond as a nurse, not only for her patient but the patient’s family.  
 

Congratulations Rachel!
