NURSE OF THE MONTH
Champion Home Health Care congratulates Diane Vocia RN DON as our Nurse of the Month.
Diane has dedicated her nursing career in the service… of the geriatric population and is a strong believer that older people should not neglect their health conditions and care needs due to the current fear of Covid-19.
As the Director of Nursing for Champion Home Health Care, Diane is addressing the care needs of our clients, and providing a safe environment for both care-giver and client.
Following the CDC Guidelines, she has diligently worked with the Champion team to obtain the recommended Personal Protective Equipment for our caregivers, N-95 face masks, gloves, face shields, gowns, and hand sanitizer.
Even in this time of equipment shortage, through her diligent search, has been able to obtain the necessary supplies to keep out staff and clients safe. Diane makes sure our caregivers are evaluated weekly to be sure they are healthy and following proper precautions.
Diane has also received the Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing, celebrating her outstanding nursing and inspiration to the nursing profession.
This award is highlighted in a recent letter that Champion Home Health Care received from the President of the Home Care Association of Florida:
I stand in awe of you, of what you do each day. I know you are living in full days, longer hours, and added stressful conditions. Each time you have been forced ‘with the next thing’ you have risen to the task.
All because you are a caregiver at heart.
The World Health Organization declared 2020 the “Year of the Nurse” and the world is seeing the kind of nursing that Florence Nightingale envisioned of nurses being called to the front line. When everyone else is asked to stay at home, you are being called to serve.
