Compassus – Columbia Recognizes Local Nursing Assistant

COLUMBIA, Tenn. – The Compassus program serving Columbia and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Laura Jett during National Nursing Assistants Week, June 9 -16, for providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families. Jett  has been a Compassus colleague since May 2015.


“We are proud to recognize Laura 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 Michele Marbet, director of clinical services for Compassus – Columbia. “Laura’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.


“Laura’s patients gravitate toward her beautiful smile. She has an amazing heart for hospice, and treats each patient as an individual with empathy and compassion,” continued Marbet.


Compassus – Columbia 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.
