This Shinning Star has created a buzz early in her career at Chartiers Center. Dana Lynch, RTP Specialist, was nominated by two different staff who both expressed her willingness to constantly go above and beyond in her job. She takes on all job responsibilities given and then asks what else can be done. According to her nominations she is constantly asking for how to make the individuals lives better while they are at the RTP. This can range from eating healthier meals, to improving their ADL’s and improving quality of life through activities and communication.
What really caused me to think she deserves the shining star the most is her willingness to help. On a day the RTP staff was swamped with work, she noticed one of the therapists was stressed and she asked “What can I do to help make your job easier?” She stepped in to help the therapist and supported the other staff. She literally tracks information on all the residents so the treatment team has more data and she usually does it all on her own.
The nomination ended with these thoughts, “She is a fantastic worker and for being so new in the position, she is a major asset to Chartiers and the RTP team.”
Dana congratulations on being recognized by your peers for going above and beyond!
