Every day, a growing number of dedicated nurses care for aging adults and people with complex medical needs inside their homes, administering daily medications, providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, and managing personalized plans of care.
To pay tribute to the specialized and tireless work of thousands of nurses throughout the network, BrightStar Care launched a national Nurse of the Year program to recognize the nurses who are working hard to deliver A Higher Standard of Home Care each and every day.
This year, our Field Nurse Paul Mackey was nominated. Here is the nomination letter about Paul:
Paul came to BrightStar Care of Columbus less than a year ago.
Although he did not have much experience as a Registered Nurse, Paul was very professional and eager to learn. Almost immediately, Paul proved to be our go to guy when we needed a last minute assignment filled.
He works all types of cases, from home care assignments to staffing assignments.
Regardless of the type of work he is doing, Paul’s work is always thorough and complete. He also maintains a consistent level of professionalism that has earned him numerous reports of praise from our clients. Paul was BrightStar of Columbus’s Employee of the Month for December and he now is our lead nurse for Supervisor Visits.
For these reasons, I nominate Paul Mackey for Nurse of the Year.
