TUPELO, Miss.—Stacey Allred of 2 West recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award for November.
Allred, who works as a certified nursing assistant, unit coordinator and monitor technician, was nominated by a patient’s wife. “Stacey was very attentive to my husband’s every need. She went beyond her call of duty to care for him,” his wife wrote. “She discovered a large knot in his stomach area and reported it immediately. The doctor ordered tests and immediately sent us to the Critical Care Unit.”
While the patient awaited a procedure to stop internal bleeding, Allred took the time to get his wife settled in a waiting area. “She left us telling us that she would be lifting us up in her prayers,” his wife wrote. “She is a good example of a loving, caring and Christian employee.”
Allred lives in Smithville and joined the NMMC staff 10 months ago. She received her training at Itawamba Community College in 2017.
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. Nomination forms are available throughout NMMC or at www.nmhs.net/bee-award. For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email BEEAwards@nmhs.net.
