Nominated by Sheila Dugas, Diagnostics Supervisor:
Kathy Fontenot, Cardiac Rehab
Went to visit a patient in her normal day to day duties in cardiac rehab. Found the husband of the patient very distressed because he was caught up in traffic, feeling poorly, had not had time to eat, didn't want to leave his wife's side, etc. etc. etc…
Kathy went to the cafeteria and purchased a meal for this man out of her own pocket and brought it to him at his wife's bedside so he could get food and not have to leave his wife. He was most appreciative of Kathy doing this for him.
She took the extra time to take care of the family as well as the patient.
