TUPELO, Mississippi—North Mississippi Medical Center recently recognized Brittany Brown of 3 West with the most recent BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
“I had a patient who really wanted to get a bath before her son came to see her,” wrote Kallie Taylor, RN, who nominated Brown for the honor. The nurse could not bathe her right then, and her nursing assistant was not available. Without hesitation, Brown stepped in.
“The patient went from tearful to confident and smiling,” Taylor wrote. “This is just one instance where Brittany has shown extraordinary care. Patients always love her. Simple actions like this are what make patients feel human and loved.”
Brown, who is a certified nursing assistant, unit coordinator and monitor technician, joined the 3 West staff in 2018. A Tupelo resident, she is a 2013 graduate of Saltillo High School and earned an associate degree from Itawamba Community College in 2015. “The best part of my job is interacting with our patients,” Brown said.
She received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and cupcakes.
