James Conyers (Mr. C) from Secure Unit #2 named as Employee of the Quarter – 1st Quarter – 2008

Wow!  There were some really awesome nominations submitted for “Employee of the Quarter – 1st Quarter – 2008.  It just goes to show you that we have some pretty outstanding employees here at Georgia Regional Hospital.  Congratulations James Conyers (Mr. C) on being selected as Employee of the Quarter – 1st Quarter – 2008.  Dr. John Prather, Secure Unit #2, submitted the following nomination:  

“I know of no other employee in this hospital that is more deserving of this award than “Mr. C”, James Conyers, FST.  His performance in all areas in his lead FST position is extra outstanding, to include performance, teamwork and customer service – all graded A+.  He has been instrumental in the opening and developing of the new Forensic Unit.

 

He is effective in providing patient care and dealing with the vast assortment of demands and duties with the highest degree of professionalism and effectiveness.  I challenge anyone to work an 8-hour FST/HST shift and constantly make good judgments, maintain order and render patient care.  He does.

 

So, in summary, there is no other employee more deserving of this award.  To prove my point, check him on Unit 2, doing his job effectively and without fanfare.  He is the most indispensable employee on this Unit, and that includes the attending Psychiatrist.  He is easy to pick out.  He will be amongst the patients wearing a blue lab coat with his signature mustache”.

 

Congratulations goes out to the following employees who were also nominated: 
Joyce Fraser – Volunteer Services
Randy Cone – Engineering/Maintenance
Pamela Duncan – RHA Office
Shep Ingram – Engineering/Maintenance

Craig works well with others and is respected by his co-workers, supervisors and subordinates.  He demonstrates customer service skills by the smile that is always on his face and the kind words that always comes out of his mouth.

Shatovini English Named Employee of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2007

Congratulations Shatovini English on being selected as Employee of the Quarter – 4th Quarter – 2007.  An anonymous person submitted the following nomination: “I feel we are very fortunate to have an employee like Toby. She is a true asset to Unit #4 and GRHS. She is very knowledgeable of her job as well as being cheerful and an excellent role model for an FST. She is always willing to work over to help out and has gone above what was expected after many of Unit #4’s staff went over to Unit #2 and staffing became so short. The main reason that I am nominating her is because she performed the Heimlich maneuver last month on a consumer after he swallowed an ink pen in attempt to harm himself. This unselfish act possibly saved his life.  ”As you can see, we have some really awesome employees here at Georgia Regional Hospital.

Richard Pauly of Maintenance Named Employee of the Quarter for the third quarter of 2007

Congratulations Richard Pauly on being selected as Employee of the Quarter – 3rd Quarter – 2007.Albertha Tolbert, Engineering/Maintenance Program Assistant, submitted the following nomination:  “I chose this employee because he always has the energy to strive on. He is one of the oldest employees of this department and also is a retired veteran. When he is taking a break, lunch or even before work begins, he is discussing what needs to be done and encouraging the guys of what it takes to get it done. He is a level-headed guy and is always making sure the work is done right. He comes to work when he is sick and always goes the extra mile when it is hot outside or whatever the weather, in making sure the guys do not get dehydrated (having enough water) or that they have enough gear to work with. He is one of the guys that makes sure the grounds are kept the way they are suppose to be kept. My hat goes off to Mr. Pauly. He never complains. He just goes about his daily work schedule as planned.

Craig Matthews of Maintenance Named Employee of the Quarter for the second quarter of 2007

Congratulations Craig Matthews on being selected as Employee of the Quarter - 2nd Quarter 2007.

Albertha Tolbert, Engineering/Maintenance Program Assistant, submitted the following nomination:

"Mr. Matthews is always lending a helping hand.  He never complains, stops whatever he is doing to do whatever is asked of him.  Even with him being out with 2nd and 3rd degree burns he came in or called to ensure that things were running smoothly. 
Whatever the situation, he makes sure it is done right.  Craig is an outstanding person and friend.  He is always soft-spoken and always has a smile on his face.  He always goes above and beyond!"
Mr. Matthews has been a GRH-S employee for 22 years.  He started his career here as an Automotive Service Technician and was recently promoted to Trades Supervisor.  "A good team makes life easy" said Mr. Matthews in reference to his co-workers.  "And I am happy to be part of it."

 

Leona Pinkney of Nursing Named Employee of the Quarter for the first quarter of 2007

Congratulations Leone Pinkney on being selected as Employee of the Quarter - 1st Quarter 2007.

Linda Rowland, Infection Control Nurse, submitted the
following nomination:

“On Tuesday, November 28, 2006, I was on Unit 6 and observed a very dangerous situation. Ms. Pinkney stepped between a petite nurse and a very irate patient and prevented physical injury to the nurse and others in the area. Ms. Pinkney was physically dragged to the floor by the patient while having that patient’s hand around her throat! It took 4 to 5 employees to remove the patient’s hands and body from Ms.
Pinkney. Ms. Pinkney remained as calm as possible under a very volatile situation. We are indeed very thankful that no serious injury occurred to the patient, the nurse or Ms.
Pinkney. Without the quick response from Ms. Pinkney, this incident could have quickly got out of hand, causing several serious injuries on the unit.  After the situation ended, I questioned others on the unit and discovered that this is not the first time that Ms. Pinkney has been involved in a situation as described above. Ms. Pinkney is a vital part of the health care team on Unit 6 and is to be commended for a job well done. Her actions exemplify her commitment to Georgia Regional Hospital’s patients and staff! She is a shining example (in action) of the quality of care and concern others receive while on the Georgia Regional Hospital-Savannah campus”. 

Am honorable mention and congratulations goes out to the
