The BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for August was presented on October 4 to Tracy Rongaus, nurse at Interim Hospice. Congratulations, Tracy!
Tracy was nominated as a truly excellent caregiver because she is known to ensure that all patients receive the utmost care. Recently she worked with a widowed patient in his nineties, as he faced his growing inability to take care of himself. During multiple visits, Tracy brought favorite snacks, PJs, slippers, and the most precious gift of all – her time and her presence. She was with him in his final hours.
The August Award for Excellence was handed to Tracy by Katie Brandt, Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director. Due to scheduling difficulties in September, this awards ceremony was only taking place now…Which means that we’re not long away from the announcement of the winner of the prize for September!
