NMMC Presents BEE Award to McCoy
TUPELO, Miss.—Deborah McCoy, a certified nursing assistant on 3 South, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award for August.
McCoy was nominated by a patient, who wrote: “Ms. Deborah was very kind to me. She helped do some very personal and embarrassing things with empathy and understanding… It didn’t matter if it was a big thing or small, she made me feel like I was the only one she had to take care of, me knowing the whole time how busy she was…She is a wonderfully positive lady.”
Presenting Deborah McCoy (center) with NMMC’s BEE Award for August are (from left) Megan Hastings, 3 South nurse manager; Megan Bunch, director of nursing; Donna Pritchard, chief nursing executive; and David Wilson, NMMC president.
A Shannon native, McCoy lives in the Palmetto community of Pontotoc County. She has worked as a certified nursing assistant on 3 South since joining the NMMC staff four years ago.
She received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and a cake. The BEE Award is given to a deserving caregiver each month at NMMC.
