8/24/10: Emerson nurse receives MVP award

Jennifer Castellano, RN, recently received Emerson’s “Most Valuable People” award. The award is part of Emerson Hospital’s reward and recognition program, which honors staff for superior job performance. “Jenn remains one of the most respected members of the staff,” wrote a colleague who nominated Castellano for the award. “If there is a difficult clinical issue, she is the nurse all others will seek out. Her knowledge base is extensive. She is a proponent of utilizing available resources, and her first question is almost always ‘what does the policy say?’ This is why when a place opened on the nurse practice council, Jenn was the obvious choice to fill it. She now works as an active member for policy development and approval.   Jenn knows where her resources are and actively seeks out the assistance of other departments so that the care she provides is seamless. This applies to hands-on care, to utilized equipment, and to working with dietary to make sure the patient receives a diet that both provides the maximum available nutrition while offering the most comfort for her patient. She ensures that the patient receives the most comprehensive approach possible.  She is a team player. She answers all call lights. If her own patient load is comfortable and settled, she rolls up her sleeves to help her peers. Her assessment skills are beyond reproach. She pays attention to the minutest details and has a full understanding of her patient load.”
