March Employee of the Month Award Winners

Connie Cox, LPN, Pharmacy/MH Coordinator

“Connie is a great employee who should be recognized for her hard work. She works many hours without taking her breaks and does the job of three people. Connie makes sure she is neat and on top of her job and does it with a smile. As a charge nurse, her floor was in order. She deserves to be acknowledged for all she does and more. She is an asset to our facility.

“Connie deserves to be nominated. She does her job well and is dedicated to making sure duties are done right and done to better the residents. I appreciate everything she does to help, even when her workload is heavy. She deserves to be noticed for all she does for us.”

“Connie is a great nurse and it shows in her work. She is compassionate and can utilize her talents throughout the building. Connie is thorough and to the point, when it comes to what she wants done. She deserves recognition for all the jobs that she does in her time here at Cedar Haven. She will do for anyone and not expect anything in return. She is a wonderful addition to this facility.”

“Connie is constantly crazy busy and yet always remains helpful and pleasant. She does the work of what could easily be a two-person job. Although she is busy all the time, if I have a question about meds or diagnoses, she will take the time to help me.”

“Connie is always available to help with medication problems (she gets calls from all shifts) and residents’ mental health issues. She provides 1:1 to many residents. She helps the nurses on the units by taking off orders and would assist with meds if needed. She is an excellent resource for our staff.”

Jacqueline Hemperly, RN Supervisor

Her personality is bubbly and sociable. Jackie is an asset to Cedar Haven and a wonderful person to work with. She is always willing to help and makes sure you are covered. She deserves to be recognized.”

“Jackie is always there when needed. I call the office and she will take the time to get us anything we need. She always shows her appreciation to the staff.”

Her efforts are recognized and appreciated by staff and residents.”

“Great supervisor. Will do anything for her staff.”

“What I love about Jackie is her love for education and evidence based practice. Jackie constantly seeks opportunities to teach by sharing her knowledge and skills with the staff. She is always interacting with the staff and the staff look up to her. We appreciate everything she does. She is a huge asset to Cedar Haven. Thank you, Jackie!”
