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 Registered Nurse, Sandra Hewson was nominated. Here is the nomination letter about Sandra:
Sandy Hewson has been with BrightStar Care of Fort Wayne for the last 4 and a half years.
She was one of the first nurses who was hired after opening our agency to assist with field visits.
This was a part time job for Sandy who also was a full time ER Nurse.
After a short while, Sandy made the decision to move into a full time RN Case Manager position.
After 4 years and endless hours of going above and beyond in providing case management to her clients, Sandy was recently promoted to be our first Quality Assurance Manager.
Sandy continues to show daily her outstanding dedication to myself, our Agency and the BrightStar Franchise system. This is only one example of how she makes more possible for her clients and peers every day.
