Meet our PSEA winner of the year.
The PSEA (President’s Service Excellence Award) program was design to recognized employees who not only perform exemplary in their work areas but also extend outstanding customer service to patients, co-workers and visitors. To qualify as PSEA winner of the year, the honoree must have been chosen as PSEA of the Quarter. Then from the four quarterly winners, in February one is announced as PSEA of the Year. In 2010, the four quarterly finalists were: Delores Cotton, Debra Buck, Jo Ann Grubbs, and Rhonda Taylor. Taylor was selected as PSEA for 2010. As President’s Service Excellence Award winner of the year, she is entitled to a free vacation anywhere in the United States.
Rhonda Taylor started as pediatric nurse on March 28, 1981 and progressed to several roles, including interim nurse manager for PCU and subsequently to administrative supervisor before accepting the position as case manager. Rhonda is a very dedicated and professional case manager and nurse and worthy of the honor of President’s Service Excellence! She is a can-do team player, meeting the needs of a diverse population on the Progressive Care Unit (PCU) as well as other areas, if needed. She works daily to provide efficient and effective outcomes for discharge planning and case management responsibilities. She is very detailed and precise in her clinical documentation to ensure that every fact is written. For her awesome documentation techniques, she is the designee for the departmental minutes and staff education sessions. She is knowledgeable in all aspects of Resource Management and collaborates well with physicians and other healthcare members to ensure her patients are receiving optimal community services.
Rhonda is described by nursing staff as: Friendly, courteous, dedicated, a partner in care, a strong organizational leader and problem solver, and able to communicate professionally, concisely, and effectively with internal and external customers to solve patient outcome care needs. She willingly shares her knowledge with those around her. She utilizes all known sources for patient outcomes and utilization of available community services. Her advocacy for patient rights shows that she cares for each and every patient that is assigned to her and ensures that everyone in their family are aware of patient strengths and support available. This is remarkable, but not unusual for Rhonda. In her service at Lenoir Memorial, Rhonda is always a nurse. In addition, she has served on the Documentation Committee, a vital member of the Emergency Preparedness and is a member of N.C. Nurses Association.
