TUPELO, Miss.—Respiratory therapist Amanda Lann recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
Lann was nominated by a registered nurse who commended Lann for performing tracheostomy care for a patient who had repeatedly refused the care but desperately needed it. “She was very kind and patient, and he finally let her perform the trach care,” his nurse wrote. “She then proceeded to help the man clean up a little and bathe. She handled the patient wonderfully and helped us achieve something that needed to be done when it was not her responsibility to do so—but she did so anyway.”
A Fulton native, Lann graduated from Itawamba Agricultural High School in 2009. She earned an associate degree in respiratory therapy from Itawamba Community College in 2013 and worked as a respiratory therapist for three years at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson. She joined the NMMC staff in 2016.
Lann 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.
