TULLAHOMA, Tenn. – The Compassus program serving Tullahoma and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Annette Krause during National Nursing Assistants Week, June 9 -16, for providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families. Krause has been a Compassus colleague for eight years.
“We are proud to recognize Annette for her tireless efforts to provide our patients and their families with superior hospice care that goes beyond fulfilling their medical and emotional needs, delivering a more meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients,” said Chris Baily, director of clinical services for Compassus – Tullahoma. “Annette’s positive and caring attitude, exceptional ability to understand and comfort patients, and willingness to support colleagues makes her an integral part of the care we provide. We are extremely fortunate to have her on the Compassus team.”
Nursing assistants provide as much as 90 percent of the direct long term care delivered in the United States, interacting daily with an array of personalities, cultures, abilities and disabilities in nursing homes, home care, hospice, assisted living, and other long term care settings.
“Annette’s patients know that she cares, not only by what she says, but also by how she treats them. She is one of the most kind people I have ever met,” continued Baily.
Compassus – Tullahoma will recognize other local nursing assistants during National Nursing Assistants Week by presenting them with framed certificates of appreciation for their dedication to the patients and families they serve.
