Purpose, Worthwhile Work, Making a Difference!
Dr. Karingada is always very respectful, professional, and is always focused on the well-being of his patients first and foremost. Most recently, we had a patient on Medical Floor that was deteriorating. She was sitting in the recliner and looked uncomfortable and needed to get back into bed right away. This patient was unable to walk or transfer back into the bed independently. She required a two-person assist and only having one in the room at the time, Dr. Karingada could tell this patient needed to be moved immediately. He jumped right in and picked the patient up, cradling her in his arms and placed her gently and safely back in her bed. The family of the patient was in the room and were very touched by his compassion and willingness to jump right in and help.
We are very blessed to have Dr. Karingada on our team and caring for our patients.
We congratulate Matt on being chosen May's Employee of the Month.
