Another staff member that we want to recognize for their hard work is Kylee Kirkwood! Kylee is the Clinical Director in our Haven Hospice branch. She works with the nurses and staff members of Haven Hospice to support them and ensure their patients get the best care possible. Kylee exemplifies Haven’s core values: Do what is right, not what is easy, Working in the same direction, and Accountable and committed.
Her supervisor, Kim, had this to say about Kylee:
“Kylee Kirkwood is dedicated to all of these and more. Kylee works diligently to make sure work loads are evenly distributed. She checks in and makes sure her staff are uplifted and encouraged. This last weekend I had a text from Kylee, I knew from the text she must be out with a patient, but this was Sunday. I thought maybe something happened and the on call nurse needed help. But she was out doing baths.
We were struggling with CNA help and Kylee had put all she could on the Nurses and felt that the best way to help was for her to go out on Sunday to get ahead on baths. Kylee never complains, but she is always working to find a solution or a way to make the care for patients seamless. She did not want to have a patient go without a bath. I am blessed beyond measure to have Kylee by my side.”
Congratulations Kylee! Thank you so much for all your amazing work.
