Read the story included on Dee Ann's nomination form:

“Dee Ann is an excellent senior nurse who is always patient and helpful to any and all of her coworkers. She is outstanding at guiding new nurses by giving her time and knowledge at any time. She is always positive, supportive, and respectful. And when needed she stands up for what is right for the patient and her coworkers but always in a respectful thoughtful manner.

She will never leave anything unfinished or left to do for someone else. She will stay late if something needs doing or someone needs help. She steps up in every way possible.

She has made me a better nurse by helping guide me with procedures that are new to me or help with anything I need help with. Dee Ann is the type of nurse that makes everyone better and gives her patients the absolute best care. She is such a pleasure to work with and makes being at work enjoyable. I cannot express how wonderful she is as a person and a professional every single day.”
