It has been written that “Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.” Such is true of the 11 Monongahela Valley Hospital nurses who were recently nominated for the Cameos of Caring Award. This prestigious award, which is presented annually by the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing, honors exceptional bedside nurses who work at acute care hospitals.
MVH’s 2012 Cameos of Caring® Award Nominees include Stephanie Petrusky, RN, 7-East; Kathy Martin, RN, Behavioral Health; Nicole Morris, RN, Progressive Care Unit; Beth Farner, RN, Cardiac Care Unit; Dana Doctorick, RN, Intensive Care Unit; and Becky Caldwell, RN, 5-East.
Nurses throughout Western Pennsylvania nominate their co-workers, and each hospital selects one nurse who demonstrates excellence in nursing care, serves as an advocate for patients and families and embodies the essence of the nursing profession.
MVH’s Cameo of Caring Award winner will be announced at the hospital’s annual Nurses Day Breakfast, which will be held at the hospital on Thursday, May 10.
