Each month, Chilton Hospital honors one employee whose performance exceeds expectations and sets him or her apart as a role model for others for the esteemed Service Star of the Month award. For December 2012, the hospital made a rare decision of naming multiple employees to receive this honor.
Three employees, dubbed the “Clinical Compassion Crew,” recently received the monthly Service Star award for exceptional patient care. They are all nurses on Chilton’s PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit):
Clinical Coordinator Anna Maria Araujo, RN, CPAN, of Glenwood, NJ
Robin Donohue, RN, of Stockholm, NJ
Nancy Wasiuk, RN, of Pompton Plains, NJ
Service Star honorees are recognized at a monthly ceremony that family members may attend. They receive personal congratulations from hospital administrators, as well as those who have nominated them for the honor and those who work with them. Service Star employees receive recognition by having an actual celestial star named after them. In addition, Service Stars are also granted preferred parking during their Service Star Month.
