Hilo Medical Center celebrated National Nursing Assistant Week, June 9th – 16th, by hosting HMC’s First Annual CNAs of the Year Recognition.
Here’s Lexus Enriquez-Isabel, CNA from the Emergency Department, and just some of the qualities that made her a member of this year’s Top CNA Class.
Lexus is dedicated to improvement of patient and staff care and safety in the Emergency Department. She has dedicated her personal time to our ED Shared Governance committee and has made a positive change in morale, empowerment, and accountability. She is always positive and willing to go out of her way to ensure the unit is running smoothly.
Enriquez-Isabel is acknowledged for taking on the role for lead of the equipment committee for our shared governance/patient safety council. She has revised our equipment map and also provided visual education pieces to ensure that staff in the ED are notified and aware of where specific patient care equipment is located.
This assists with patient safety and care as staff are not confused and frustrated when they are unable to locate important equipment that is needed to provide immediate care during a crisis/emergent situation. Always positive and wants to find solutions for problems and issues, rather than just complain about them. She has initiative and is proactive.
Her commitment to the ED makes the flow more efficient, she is a true team player.
