Rachel Tingle, RN, Named Weatherford Regional Medical Center’s Patient Choice Award Winner
WEATHERFORD, TX (May 9, 2012) - When Weatherford Regional Medical Center asked former patients to nominate exceptional nurses who exceeded expectations, the community responded with an incredible number of nominations.
The Patient Choice Award recognizes the quality care, comfort and compassion offered by the nurses at Weatherford Regional Medical Center, and honors one nurse in particular. As part of National Nurse’s Week, May 6-12, Rachel Tingle, RN, was presented with the award at a hospital ceremony.
Weatherford Regional Medical Center asks former patients to spotlight an exceptional nurse because patients are the ones directly impacted by outstanding care.
“Sometimes it’s just too hard to spot one nurse when there are so many nurses in our hospital doing such an incredible job caring for our patients,” says Donna Boone, Chief Nursing Officer for Weatherford Regional Medical Center. “That’s why we asked patients to help us make the choice. They see the little things that matter so much on a very personal level.”
Tingle was nominated and selected for consistently creating an environment in which our patients are very satisfied with their care. She is attentive to their healthcare needs and personalizes each patient’s care. She educates her patients on how to cope with disease processes, how to manage their medications and how to create a healthy lifestyle following discharge. We are fortunate to have caregivers in our organization like Tingle who always make quality and service a priority.
