Congrats to the latest High Five SHINE Award Winner – Roger LaFlamme, LNA, 4 West!
“Roger is one of the most reliable and dependable LNAs I have ever worked with. He goes
above and beyond to make sure all of his patients care needs are met daily. Yesterday he
and I were tasked with caring for an elderly gentleman who had recently had a major
stroke. Before I had met with him to discuss my plans for the day, I entered the room to
find the patient washed, shaved, and his vitals and blood sugar were already recorded.
Roger was readying the lift to get the patient to the chair, and his sheets were quickly
changed once the patient was up. This gentleman received stellar treatment and was
looking his best for his wife to come visit later today.
This level of care is not unusual for Roger, he makes it happen each and every day he
works, with all of our patients. He often picks up extra shifts for the unit to help with
staffing. He maintains safety at all times, and will always partner with nursing if he has
a concern. His attention to basic needs of his patients while honoring their dignity
is remarkable and seldom found.”
Thank you Roger, and congratulations!
