Employee of the Month
When a patient suddenly decided to leave AMA from the Emergency Center despite serious mobility issues, Jesus worked hard to accommodate her. Jesus spoke with the patient and managed to recover her wheelchair from her home before assisting her to the bus, ensuring she made it safely back. Throughout the process, he was attentive and caring, showing why, at UMC, Service is Our Passion. Jesus’s co-workers are proud of his selfless commitment toward his fellow staff and our patients.
Attending of the Month
Peter Reed, MD
UMC Emergency Medicine
Dr. Reed is an amazing doctor with a great bedside manner. He is knowledgeable, provides 5-star care, and continually goes out of his way for his patients and staff. When a patient recently had an emergency retinal detachment, Dr. Reed worked closely with the patient and did everything he could to make them comfortable. Despite the challenge, the patient couldn’t say enough about his positive experience in the EC and Dr. Reed’s exceptional support.
House Staff of the Month
Daniel Nguyen, MD
TTUHSC, Department of Otolaryngology
Dr. Daniel Nguyen showed his unique patience while treating a patient in the Emergency Center. Though the EC tempo requires a lot of multi-tasking, Dr. Nguyen took several hours to ensure a complex patient received the attention they needed to leave UMC healthier and with a better understanding of their overall health. His responsiveness and support of the nursing staff make him a favorite among his colleagues. We thank Dr. Nguyen for his dedication.
Advanced Practice Professional of the Quarter
Renee Garcia, APRN
TTUHSC, Department of Internal Medicine
Renee rushed to the hallway to help a nurse who was coding their patient. On the way back to the room, Renee pushed the bed while the patient’s nurse did CPR. On another occasion, we had to transfer an unstable patient to interventional radiology, and Renee volunteered to deliver medication for the patient. We really appreciate her help and dedication.
