TUPELO, Miss.—Christen Stacy, nursing assistant and unit coordinator on 4 West, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
“I suffered a terrible cut to my forehead. My hair was matted with blood,” wrote the patient who nominated her. “Christen seemed to know how it was bothering me.” Stacy worked diligently to clean the patient’s scalp and stitches, and even brought hair products from home to use.
“Her cheerful attitude helped my spirits immensely,” the patient wrote. “She went the extra mile and then some. In difficult times, the kindness of others is immeasurable. I so appreciated her devotion and tender care.”
A 2000 graduate of South Panola High School, Stacy attended Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia and Itawamba Community College in Fulton. She joined the NMMC staff six years ago on 3 South and transferred to 4 West shortly thereafter.
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.
