Compassus – North Andover Recognizes Local Nursing Assistant

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – The Compassus program serving North Andover and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Elizabeth Harty during National Nursing Assistants Week, June 9 -16, for providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families. Harty has been a Compassus colleague since September 2010.

“We are proud to recognize Elizabeth 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 Joseph Peterson, executive director for Compassus – North Andover. “Elizabeth’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.

“Elizabeth loves what she does, and you can tell that when she is with her patients. She is always flexible, caring and compassionate,” continued Peterson.

Compassus – North Andover 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.
