Janice Graham--September Shining Star for Pella Regional

Janice Graham, Shining StarPELLA, Iowa— Janice Graham, Wound Care, was selected as September Shining Star by co-workers at Pella Regional Health Center.

Graham, resident of Pella, was nominated based on Attitude, Appearance, Commitment, and Sense of Ownership.

Excerpts from her nomination:
“We recently had a patient with a wound vac on Med/Surg. Two nights in a row the wound vac kept beeping. After trying everything we could think of to fix it, we called Janice. Janice was not on call or working at the time, but was kind enough to come in two nights in a row. She was very kind to the nurses and came in with a positive attitude even though we called her when she was getting ready for bed. Janice went above and beyond to care for the patient and is a valuable asset to Pella Regional.”

Shining Star is a reward and recognition program at Pella Regional designed to acknowledge an employee each month that demonstrates outstanding standards of behavior and inspires others to do their best.

Graham will receive a $100 gift, a plaque, and will automatically be included in the Shining Star of the Year award.
