This week we are highlighting some of our outstanding Student-CNAs#sauerstrong May 2020
First up, meet Amber! There is no doubt she is going to be a phenomenal nurse. She has been enthusiastically caring for our residents and picking up lots of extra shifts, even during finals, to ensure our residents had all the comfort and care they needed. Amber demonstrates the quality of teamwork like no other and we are so glad to call her one of ours. Thank you Amber!
Ever hear the phrase “She may be small, but she is MIGHTY”? Well, that’s Falon here at Sauer! She’s got an infectious smile and is always a joy to work with – and the residents love her even more than her co-workers do! We’re proud to have this nursing student on our team – thankyou Falon!
Parker is another one of our amazing future nurses in the making. He has been willing to pitch in extra hours and has taken every new protocol and PPE requirement in stride. He is cool under pressure (and he’s a pretty cool guy under normal circumstances too). We are glad he will be a part of our team until his graduation. Thank you Parker!
Kathy is one of our LPN student-CNAs and she has been top notch right from the get go! She is always one of the first to volunteer when the team needs a hand and we are looking forward to celebrating her graduation next year! Thank you Kathy!
Mady recently celebrated her 1 year anniversary with Sauer! She is an RN in the making that has been balancing her academics all while consistently bringing her upbeat, positive disposition to every shift. Thanks for an awesome year Mady!
Kenna is yet another rockstar student CNA! We are so thankful for her willingness to pick up shifts, often coming in after a full day of classes to help out in the evenings and weekends. She is well-loved by our residents and staff alike. Winona is blessed to have so many outstanding young professionals in our midst. Thank you Kenna!
Meet Pojo! This woman is a warrior. She has been working hard to finish her nursing program and when the perfect storm of COVID, distance education, and finals all combined – she simply got the job done. We couldn’t be more blessed to have Pojo on our team and we look forward to celebrating her upcoming license! Thank you Pojo!
We are so proud of Ashley! She has been a big player in our nursing department and is constantly adding new skillsets. She not only provides fantastic care to residents, but has been an administrative whiz as our staff development and scheduling coordinator. We look forward to celebrating a long string of accomplishments for this young professional! Thank you Ashley!
To kick off national Nursing Home Week, we are celebrating our awesome staff.#sauerstrong May 2020
First up, is CNA/TMA Jake. All of our staff are heroes, including Jake who has been a standout here at Sauer. Not only has Jake consistently stepped up and volunteered to stay for extra shifts, he has assisted with special projects throughout to ensure compliance with every changing guideline as we learn more and more about the COVID virus. Jake’s personal sacrifice during this time has not gone unnoticed and his dedication to our residents is awe-inspiring. We can’t thank you enough Jake!
We can’t say enough about Sheril! She has been a team player flexing between roles and filling in whenever and wherever duty called – not just during COVID, but for over 40 years! Sheril loves Sauer and our residents and we all love her right back. Sheril’s work ethic and passion are admired by many. Thank you Sheril!
Josh is another fan favorite around here. Well known for his domination of themed dress up days, Josh is always focused on bringing his absolute best. He takes the quality of his cares seriously and that passion has never waivered. Josh was a trooper from day one – reassuring residents and encouraging his teammates. He is a special part our team. We love you Josh!
Ashley is one of our LPN leaders on the overnight nursing team and has been dedicated to the care of our residents for more than 8 years. Her strong nursing skills are an asset to our team. Thank you Ashley!
One of the members of our rock star Dietary Team – Jami! She is marathon-ready after her many, many extra hours of service. Like many here at Sauer, Jami has had to adjust to a lot of updates in procedure and precaution. She has kept a positive attitude and been reliable often coming in for a morning shift and returning for dinner service as well. Thank you Jami!
Look up reliable in the dictionary, and you will find a picture of Stephen. He has been bringing a smile to residents for over 25 years. While his song lyrics might be improvised, his commitment to our residents never is. He has patience enough for any situation and he has answered yes to every assignment asked of him. Thank you Stephen!
Katrina! Devoted, upbeat, flexible and kind – she’s going on 4 years as a dietary superstar and she’s been nothing short of amazing throughout. We are blessed to have her on our team. Thank you Katrina!
Rose is one of our full-time nursing team members on the overnight shift. She’s got a fighting spirit and loves our residents from the first day they come through our door. Rose often comes in early to offer a helping hand in the evening to ensure our residents all get a comfortable transition into their nightly routine. We’re lucky to have you Rose – thank you!
There’s no way Lisa was going to let a little virus push her around! Lisa is no nonsense when it comes to getting things done – she truly loves her residents and she doesn’t allow anything to get in the way of providing care to them! She’s a hard worker and makes sure the job is done right. Thank you Lisa!
