NMMC Presents BEE Award to Seigler
TUPELO, Miss.—Roshunda Seigler, a nursing assistant on 3 South, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award for October.
Seigler was nominated by a coworker for not giving up on a patient who reportedly had not bathed for three months and refused to let anyone clean him or change his bed linens. “He looked miserable and had a very strong odor,” he wrote. “Roshunda was able to form a connection with the patient and convince him to let her help him.”
She bathed and shaved him, brushed his chair and changed his clothes. “He felt better than he had in months,” the nomination states.
A Fulton resident, Seigler graduated from Itawamba Agricultural High School in 2004. She worked for several nursing homes before joining the 3 South staff in July 2019. She earned an associate degree in health science from East Coast Polytechnic Institute in South Carolina in 2010.
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.
