HAYS, Kansas – The Associate Spirit Award at HaysMed recognizes an outstanding Associate who has gone above and beyond their daily job duties to care for a patient, visitor, or Associate at HaysMed, Recent award winners include Abby Scinto, PCT, and Molly Goodnow, LPN, both working on the surgical unit.
In addition to her duties at HaysMed, Scinto has recently completed cosmetology school. After a call from one of the charge nurses, Scinto volunteered her time to come in and take care of a patient whose hair needed attention. She spent 5 hours cutting, cleaning, and styling her hair spending 5 hours to take care of the patient on her weekend off. The patient and her husband were beyond pleased with the result
On a hot August day Goodnow received a call asking if she would be willing to come help Bone, Joint & Spine out for a few hours. She said she would but her car was in the shop so it would be a little while before she could get to the hospital. Knowing the importance of coming to help her teammates right away, she decided not to wait on her car and began the walk from her house, which is near TMP, all the way to the hospital. On arrival she caught her breath and cooled off, then she was asking what she could do to help. All of this with a smile on her face.
Both Associates went above and beyond with their dedication to the care of patients at HaysMed.
