Hudson, Florida (September 22, 2015) – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, on September 15, honored Susan Schillace, RN, Special Care Unit, as the July employee of the month. This recognition is given to staff members for going above and beyond expectations for their patients. Susan Schillace was honored recently when a nurse in the surgical intensive care unit complimented her for help. “We needed help with a confused and severely agitated patient. Susan heard us yelling for help and ran without hesitation. Once the patient was calm and safely back in bed Susan helped us even further by inserting the IV. An extra pair of hands was greatly appreciated,” said the nurse who nominated her. Susan is known for being a team player and an “engaged nurse” who truly cares for the hospital’s patients and her colleagues.
In making the award the hospital stated that Susan “epitomizes the mission statement and values that make this hospital what it is. She is recognized for her willingness to get involved and help the staff and patient regardless of her work assignment.”
As Employee of the Month, Susan Schillace receives an Employee of the Month pin, a selected blanket gift, a reception with refreshments for her colleagues, and a coveted front row parking spot of her choosing for one month, and a $50 gift card.
In addition, Susan receives a “You Make a Difference” starfish key chain personifying a well known story of the young man and the starfish.
Each Employee of the Month is also placed in nomination for RMCBP’s Employee of the Year to be determined at the end of the year.
