TUPELO, Mississippi—Caprina Bell, a certified nursing assistant with the inpatient hospice unit, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
“The patients love Caprina and so do the family members,” wrote a nurse who works with Bell. “She is very caring and compassionate with the patients and will sit with them and talk until they go to sleep.” The nurse also complimented Bell for being helpful and always having a good attitude, regardless of the situation.
A native of Duncan in Bolivar County, Bell now lives in Verona. She graduated from Broadstreet High School in Shelby in 1995 and attended Coahoma County Community College in Clarksdale. She trained as a certified nursing assistant in 2000 and worked at a nursing home for 19 years. She joined the NMMC staff shortly after moving to northeast Mississippi in 2019.
She 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.
