JACKSON, Miss. – The Compassus program serving Jackson and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Laperial “Cissy” Brown during National Nursing Assistants Week June 13-19. Brown, who has been a nursing assistant with Compassus since February 2013, is being recognized for her dedication to providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families.
“Cissy 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,” said Tammy Foster, executive director for Compassus – Jackson. “Her love and compassion are apparent in everything she does, and she puts her entire heart into the care she provides. Nursing assistants like Cissy do more than fulfill patients’ medical needs – they truly dedicate their lives to caring for and supporting others.”
“Nursing Assistants: Creating a Community of Caring” is the theme of this year’s observance. Nursing assistants provide as much as 90 percent of the direct long-term care delivered in the United States and are central to caring for patients in nursing homes, home care, hospice, assisted living and other long-term care settings.
Compassus – Jackson will recognize Brown and 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.
