6 associates, recognized by peers & residents for going above and beyond, receive Our Lady of Peace Spotlight Award
Our Lady of Peace residents and associates celebrated the nomination and selection of six members of their team as the most recent Spotlight Award recipients. The accolade recognizes associates for going above and beyond in meeting the needs of those under their care.
Taj Miles has been with OLP for 13 years. She was nominated for the award based on her “assistance with the social work associates on the subacute unit in addition to her steady, professional approach to the needs of residents,” noted Lisa Brenon, social work director.
Brandon Rolands, a 10-year associate, is well-known to the residents of 2W. One resident said, “Brandon is always very accommodating. Whatever I ask him, he gets for me. He knows me so well that I don’t even have to ask anymore, he just knows what I like. He makes me smile!”
“The housekeeping department is well represented by Ryan Comerford, another 10-year associate,” noted Damian Sheehan. “He has become part of the fabric of OLP's 3-11 p.m. shift. His friendly smile and willingness to help wherever needed is appreciated by his co-workers, residents and family members, as well.”
Phyllis Giles, C.N.A., dates her tenure with OLP back to the days when OLP didn’t exist. “Phyllis is quietly active all day and has demonstrated trust, longevity and dedication to her residents,” said Sherri Smith, RN, unit manager.
Amber Pyra, who started at OLP in 2005, is 1E’s health information assistant. She was nominated because of “her excellent customer service and willingness to help anyone in need. She really cares about doing the best she can every day.”
In her first year at OLP, Titania Ferguson, C.N.A., who works the 3-11 p.m. shift, was nominated for “Her ability to meet the needs of the residents on 3W with a smile. Her excellent relationships with families help give them piece of mind when they leave.”
