Bernadette Fernandes, a patient care assistant (PCA) on Tower 14AB, was honored last month with the Nursing and Patient Care Services' annual award for PCA outstanding service to patients and support to colleagues.
"She shines during the most difficult times," said Angela DeRiggs-Walters, RN, of 14AB, who nominated Fernandes for the award. "She takes it upon herself to provide emotional and physical comfort to patients and their families."
Her colleagues also praise her willingness and eagerness to learn new things and say she always seeks out opportunities to learn.
Fernandes was honored during a ceremony in the Bornstein Amphitheater, during which Nursing and Patient Care Services leadership recognized all PCAs, emergency services assistants and medical assistants.
