Congratulations to Deb Nissen, who has been selected as our July Employee of the Month!
Deb has been a nurse for 30 years, and now works as the Chronic Care Management nurse in the Family Health Clinic. “For some it means finding a way for them to remember to take their medications and help arrange transportation to the doctor,” Deb explained. “Other patients simply need a cheerleader. Most every patient at some time just needs someone to listen...”
For Deb, a good day at Perry happens when “we can find resources and solve a problem for a patient so they can be successful in managing their care.” She was chosen as Employee of the Month for exactly that reason. “Deb worked on her own through a long process to find a medication for a patient that actually worked. It cost $600+ (after insurance) but Deb found it for $24.”
Great job, Deb! Thank you for exemplifying our Perry Way values and putting a patient first!
