Congratulations to Cindy Tripp, who was been selected as our January Employee of the Month!
Cindy works as a triage nurse in the Family Health Clinic. She has worked at Perry for more than 20 years. As a little girl, she wanted to be a teacher. She said, “and here I am; teaching every day!”
Cindy’s selection as Employee of the Month was based on a couple of Shout Out’s on our employee Perry Proud program. According to her coworkers, Cindy was involved in a phone call with a suicidal patient. She was able to stay on the line with the patient, calm them down, assist in notifying law enforcement, and stay in communication until help arrived. Cindy “went above and beyond to show compassion for this patient, and ensured their safety… it was a refreshing and positive reminder that our patients are in capable hands.”
Great job, Cindy! Our patients are lucky to have you at Perry, always ready to assist!
