FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. – The Compassus program serving Fayetteville and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Alicia Clark during National Nursing Assistants Week June 14-21. Clark is being recognized for her dedication to providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families.
“We are proud to recognize Alicia for her tireless commitment to providing superior hospice care. Nursing assistants go beyond fulfilling patients’ medical needs – they truly dedicate their lives to caring for and supporting others,” said Susan Sutton, executive director for Compassus – Fayetteville. “Alicia is an integral part of the Compassus team and, thanks to her selfless service, our program is able to deliver a more meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients and their loved ones.”
“At her core, Alicia is nothing but kind,” said Laynie Humphrey, team and volunteer coordinator for Compassus – Fayetteville. “Recently Alicia went to tend to a new patient and an hour later the patient’s daughter called in tears of gratitude, explaining that Alicia was just what her dad needed, but more importantly what she needed. Alicia is humble, claiming she is simply doing her job, but she always goes the extra mile to ensure her patients are comfortable and happy.”
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.
Compassus – Fayetteville 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.
