The Compassus program serving Atlanta and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Universe Kerson during National Nursing Assistants Week June 15-22 for providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families.

“We are proud to recognize Universe for her tireless efforts over the past three years to provide our patients and their families with superior care that goes beyond fulfilling their medical and emotional needs, delivering a more meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients,” said Eric Williams, executive director for Compassus – Atlanta. “Universe’s joyful and compassionate attitude, exceptional ability to understand and comfort patients and selfless 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 U.S., 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.

Compassus – Atlanta 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.
