Teresa Jennings Employee of the Month
Teresa Jennings embodies everything a nurse and nurse-manager should be. She is always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if it means staying late or coming in early. She is dependable, positive, encouraging and inspirational. Teresa is a good role-model for employees and department heads. She is often found amongst the nurses helping; whether it is making calls, processing physician orders, assisting with patient care or any other job that needs addressed. Teresa has cross- trained to be an asset in all areas of the hospital. She is hard working, approachable and passionate about MCMH and the care we give here. She is our go-to person even if it is not something that falls under her umbrella of responsibilities. She will either help you or direct you, but usually she takes on the challenge and together, with you, works towards resolution. Her staff depend on her and can count on her at any time. Teresa constantly strives to improve MCMH to make it a better place for patients and staff. This month she organized the MCMH CPR Mob. With help, she assembled a team, got t-shirts and organized performance dates in Red Oak and surrounding areas. The presentations were inspiring and fun for the staff and crowd. She is a vital piece to this hospital as well as in her community where she volunteers with the Elliott Fire and Rescue. She has many leadership roles in our facility and exemplifies what it is to be a nurse and a nurse manager, a co-worker, team member, friend and leader. Congratulations Teresa!
