Deana was a champ with paperwork, employee transitions, etc. while the RN Supervisor was on leave.

I saw one of my patients earlier this AM. He wanted to express his deep appreciation and gratitude for Deana and her assistance with his insurance concerns, even saying that she needed to be nominated for “Employee of the Month.” He stated that he would not have the assistance and benefits that he currently has if not for her efforts and hard work. Thank you Deana for your efforts with helping this patient!! I appreciate you!

She always maintains a positive can do attitude.
