Regional Hospital of Scranton is Asking Patients for Input in Selecting Top Nurses
Scranton – Regional Hospital of Scranton is seeking to honor one of its nurses through its annual Patient Choice Award program. This award recognizes the level of quality care, comfort and compassion offered by nurses each day. Continuing the tradition of recognizing its nurses, the hospital is asking for input from the community, and one nurse chosen from the nominations will receive the Patient Choice Award at Regional Hospital during Nurses' Week, May 6-12.
Regional asks former patients and family members to be involved in spotlighting an exceptional nurse because patients are the ones directly impacted by outstanding care. "We are asking patients and their family members to provide us with the nominations because they see the little things that matter so much on a very personal level," says Patricia DeiTos, chief nursing officer "They know who goes the extra mile to make sure a patient experience exceeds expectations – and after all, it is the Patient Choice Award."
If you or a family member have come to Regional Hospital of Scranton for inpatient, outpatient or emergency care in the last year and you have a nurse you'd like to thank for going the extra mile, don't miss this chance. Nominations for the 2012 Patient Choice Award will be accepted until Friday April 27. Nominations can be made online at the hospital's website at www.regionalhospitalofscranton.net.
