Presenting Beth Anglin (center) with the BEE Award are David Wilson, NMMC-Tupelo president; Kristen Long, senior director of nursing; Theresa Jenkins, 4 Central Nurse Manager; and Donna Pritchard, chief nursing executive.
TUPELO, Miss.—Beth Anglin, certified nursing assistant and unit coordinator for 4 Central, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
Anglin was nominated by a patient, who wrote, “Every month when I come for my chemo treatment and I see Mrs. Beth at the desk, it gives me an immediate sense of relief. She encourages me all the time. She is compassionate. She gives hugs and takes time to listen. I know I can cry on her shoulder any time.”
When the patient’s mother spends a few days with her during treatment, Anglin makes sure her mother has breakfast. “You can tell that Mrs. Beth enjoys being the unit coordinator and nursing assistant on 4 Central,” the patient wrote. “She goes above and beyond in taking care of me.”
Anglin, who lives in Pontotoc, joined the NMMC staff in December 2016. She completed her certified nursing assistant training at Itawamba Community College.
She received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and a cake. She also received NMMC’s BEE Award in January 2018.
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.
