Staff members who take the time to get to know patients and go the extra mile are always appreciated. Marcelline Gaddis, a patient care technician from the Progressive Care Unit at Peninsula Regional Medical Center, shows dedication that has earned the respect of patients and colleagues alike, and was honored with the Sunshine Award for Outstanding CNAs, PCAs and PCTs.
Gaddis has worked at Peninsula Regional for 31 years – before becoming a patient care assistant, she worked in the child care center. Among patients, she is known for being attentive and making sure they are comfortable and bathed. Her colleagues say they appreciate her as one of the hardest workers, detail oriented and willing to work extra when needed. With her kind, attentive demeanor, many patients might not even realize she’s near the end of a 16-hour shift on occasion.
For her exceptional service, Gaddis was honored in a ceremony before her coworkers, and was presented with fresh flowers, a pin and a certificate recognizing her exceptional care. To nominate a deserving CNA, PCA or PCT, please visit www.peninsula.org/sunshine.
