NMMC Presents BEE Awards to Women’s Hospital Staff
TUPELO, Mississippi—North Mississippi Medical Center recently presented BEE Awards to three employees at Women’s Hospital.
The three were nominated for volunteering to stay past their 12-hour shifts to help in a staffing shortage on the Mother-Baby Unit. “We had 25 mothers on our unit with only one nursing assistant,” she wrote in their nominations. “They worked until additional staff could get to Women’s Hospital. Their willingness to stay and help demonstrated true teamwork!”
