Congrats Ellen Shadwick, APRN, CVICU at the Infirmary, for being presented with the Service Hero award for the month of September!
Ellen was nominated by a patient’s family member for displaying the value, compassion.
The patient was at the Infirmary for about six months and during his stay Ellen did everything in her power to help him. The family said she was so caring, encouraging and understanding.
She helped get the patient transferred to Pennsylvania to receive a double lung transplant. When he was leaving she came to say goodbye, and continues to follow up on his recovery.
The family credits her for the patient being able to watch his son grow up.
Thank you, Ellen, for you humankindness!
“She is a hero and always so compassionate and goes above and beyond.”
