Wound Care Teams Achieve Milestone
Congratulations to the Stormont Vail Wound Care Centers in Topeka and Junction City for achieving a challenge from Healogics, who Stormont Vail partners with for the operation of the centers. From August to November, Healogics implemented a “Power of One: One patient. One healing journey. One life changed” campaign to encourage their nearly 600 centers to see one more patient each week and reach more people needing care.
The Stormont Vail centers in Topeka and Flint Hills Campus in Junction City were the only two centers in the state of Kansas that achieved the goal of reaching one more patient each week. Karen Conley, Program Director, reports that both centers actually went above and beyond!
Congratulations to our Topeka and Flint Hills Wound Care Center team members for this recognition of taking care of our communities!
Meagan Johnson, BSN, RN, Recognized for Unparalleled Support, Encouragement
For Meagan Johnson, BSN, RN, in the Stormont Vail Topeka Hospital Emergency Department, easing patients’ family members through times of crisis goes hand-in-hand with patient care.
For this reason, we celebrate Meagan for receiving the DAISY Award, which honors and recognizes nurses who go the extra mile and thank them for the care and kindness they provide.
“Meagan was phenomenal. She was supportive, encouraging, helpful, patient, and extremely attentive to our family throughout our stay in the ER,” the mother of an 18-month-old patient wrote in Meagan’s nomination. “In a scary moment of our lives, Meagan went above and beyond to support us. She really is an amazing asset to your nursing team.”
Meagan, congratulations on winning the DAISY Award! Your intention, empathy, and patience are inspirational – Thank you for your steadfast commitment to care and your profession.
