TUPELO, Miss.—Shennia Mosley, a transporter and certified nursing assistant in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, has received North Mississippi Medical Center’s most recent BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
“Shennia frequently goes above and beyond to provide excellent patient care. She often takes her breaks and uses her own money to help patients and their families feel more at ease during their experiences at NMMC,” a coworker wrote in her nomination.
After caring for a cancer patient following her surgery, she gifted the patient a heart pillow to encourage her along her cancer journey. While caring for a middle-age autistic patient, she learned he loved Chick-fil-A. “Shennia took her lunch break to buy the patient a Chick-fil-A combo and gave it to him as soon as he was able to eat,” her coworker wrote. “The smile on his face after receiving this food lit up the entire unit.”
The mother of a 2-year-old surgery patient wrote to say that Mosley went above and beyond for them. “She comforted him the entire time from beginning to end until I could be with him once he was awake in Recovery,” the mother wrote. “She even gave him an awesome remote-control car to help distract him from being upset and in pain that she paid for out of her own pocket. I have never had such compassionate care from anyone and let me tell you... she’s wonderful! She helped us so much and made this experience a little less worrisome for this momma!”
Mosley was also cited for anticipating needs, gaining new skills and always being willing to help her team. “While admitting patients, Shennia is always there to provide a warm blanket and caring words,” her nomination states. “When we need supplies, Shennia is typically prepared with them before we can ask. She is a huge asset to our department because of her expansive knowledge base.”
Mosley, who lives in the Evergreen community of Itawamba County, completed her certified nursing assistant training at Itawamba Community College in 2007. She joined the NMMC staff in 2009 as a certified nursing assistant and unit coordinator on 6 South. She transferred to the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit in 2012. She and her husband, Luke, who also works at NMMC, have two sons, Colton and Corbin.
Mosley received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and cupcakes. The BEE Award is given to a deserving caregiver each month at NMMC.
