Essential Piece Award & Service Award Recipients Honored

May 11, 2011

Hudson, FL – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point has announced the 2011 first quarter recipients of its Employee Essential Piece Awards, and Service Award Recipients. The Essential Piece Award recognizes Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point employees for their demonstration of customer service. These are employees who are observed going the extra mile on a daily basis, not only to meet but to exceed the needs of their coworkers, patients, physicians, and community. The individuals selected were recognized by their peers as having demonstrated outstanding customer service.

Comments provided are received directly from patients and staff. This quarter’s “Essential Piece Award” winners receive a gift catalog to choose a gift of their choice.

Karen Karl, RNNeuro/Spine - “This is not my first trip to a hospital but this nurse is one that stands out in my mind the strongest.  She has had the best bedside manner I have ever encountered.  No question or request has been responded to in any way but with smile, grace and extreme promptness.  Through the day I have looked forward to her shift starting.  Again, highest kudos’s to this nurse.  You definitely have one of the finest on your staff.” 

David Kokoruz, RNMedical/Oncology - “He had excellent bedside manner and made my stay more comfortable.  One of the pain meds that I took made me feel lightheaded and dizzy and he stayed by my side until the episode finished.  Also in the morning I expressed to him that I wanted to take a shower and he went out of his way to get me the supplied before he started his morning med pass.  He explained all the medication I had to take and I felt the he really cared about my well being.”

Colleen Pascalli, RNNeuro/Spine - “I would like to commend the nurse who cared for my wife.  Her care goes beyond expectations.  She demonstrated the ‘Perfect Patient Experience.’  She was extremely patient and a careful listener. She went above and beyond to provide answers to our questions.  She had a great sense of our confusion and went out of her way to make sure we received up-to-date information, either by instructions from the physician, peers, management and even printing out laymen definitions of a procedure via Google.  When it comes to customer care, she gets the “WOW” factor.”

Service Awards were also presented, which recognizes employees for the years of service with the facility and with the company. Each award recipient receives an Omni box with a certificate of appreciation, an HCA/Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point pin, and a gift catalog that allows the employee to choose a gift of their choice.
