Cardiac Progressive

In recognition of giving great care and attention to patients and going above and beyond for coworkers, Kathleena (Kat) Snider, a patient care technician (PCT) on Cardiac Progressive, was honored as a recipient of the Sunshine Award at a ceremony on Oct. 27.

This award celebrates the exceptional care given by PCTs every day. Kat's co-workers cite her dedication to patients, willingness to help the care team and positive attitude.

Co-workers note that "Kat is always going above and beyond for her patients. It seems that she is always there before the patient actually knows they need something. Any time a team member is needing help, Kat is the first to lend a hand. When a team task is needed for one of her patients, Kat is always on top of things and tends to remind nurses of the task at hand."

Her nomination continues, "Kat tends to take a late lunch to make sure all her patients have eaten and are settled in for the afternoon. She is always on the run for our patients. It had been missed most of the day that it was a patient’s birthday. Kat found out and with the nurse’s permission got the patient their favorite snack from the cafeteria. She is the first to grab a cup of water or a blanket for a patient or family member.

"Kat always has a contagious positive attitude that spreads to team members as soon as she walks into the room. Kat also comes in on her days off to help the team out when needed, even for a couple of hours. She is dependable and is at work on time, if not earlier. It is always a joy to walk into work and see that Kat is helping care for our patients."
