Ivy Langga, RN on 3North at the Infirmary, has been recognized as a Serivce Hero for displaying the value of COMPASSION.
Ivy was nominated by a coworker because of the kindness she showed to a patient who did not speak English.
“I was having a hard time talking to her or understanding her. Ivy found out that she had a program to translate, so she started talking to her. After she finished, she asked me to talk to her. We had a great time and patient went off to sleep.”
The nomination praised the care and attention she gave to the patient throughout their stay.
“Ivy took her time each time she came into the room to do anything to talk to the patient. It was wonderful to know if I needed her or if the patient needed her, she was there.”
