After a Tower 10A patient experienced a difficult night of extreme pain and an embarrassing accident, patient care assistant Marie Boussicot’s gentle touch and comforting words eased the patient’s fears, worries and embarrassment.
“Marie’s help and her genuine TLC started off my day on a very positive note,” the patient said. For making patients’ comfort a top priority, Boussicot last week earned a Starfish Award, which honors BWHers committed to care, compassion, respect, advocacy and mentoring.
“Marie is a very caring and compassionate person, and patients rave about her. Her approach is always friendly and from the heart,” said Fernanda Trevisone, of Tower 10AB, who nominated Boussicot for the award.
Boussicot was one of seven Starfish Award recipients recognized at last week’s ceremony. Aubrey Lemieux, RN, of Tower 14AB; Christine Mitchell, LICSW, of Care Coordination; Darlene Brill, RN, of Care Coordination; Lauren Godsoe, RN, of Connors Center 5; Wendy Jeffrey-O’Flavin, of the Center for Reproductive Medicine; and William Gallant, of Transport, also were honored with Starfish Awards for their commitment to patients.
“Starfish Award winners go above and beyond every day,” said Julianne Mazzawi, MS, RN, member of the Starfish Committee, who emceed this month’s ceremony. “Every interaction we have with patients, no matter how small, is important to the patient.”
