We’ve got a new arrival on our delivery suite at Walsall Manor Hospital – Employee of the Month recognition for midwives who are living our organisation’s values!
Delivery Suite Team Leader Silja Fehlhaber explained that the recognition scheme started in January this year and four colleagues have been put forward for the way they have made a difference; either to women in our care or within their team.
“They truly deserve their praise and recognition,” she said.
Congratulations to the following Fab Four who were nominated by colleagues who filled in comment cards to explain why they are worthy recipients:
Colleen has been nominated for being such a lovely team player. No matter how busy the shift is, no matter how much work Colleen has to do, she always finds time to help her peers.
At the same time Colleen is always polite, friendly, calm and she smiles.
Colleen is such a civil, kind caring and friendly professional midwife and she should and is now officially being praised for who she is and what she does.
Colleen’s kindness and caring attitude reflects in her work as a midwife . As a team leader I can honestly say that the women Colleen looks after and looks out for, are privileged for being cared for by her. Coleen goes above and beyond to make the women’s experience positive.
Well done Colleen and keep doing such an amazing job.
Liz has been nominated for her support provided during a very difficult neonatal resuscitation. The baby was born with low Apgar scoring following an emergency caesarean section for a uterine rupture.
Liz is being praised for being amazing during the entire event and emergency. Liz’s input and her participation made “the world of difference.”
Her nominator cannot thank Liz enough for all she did that day.
Zena has been nominated for ” just getting on with it.”
Regardless of what her work day throws at her, Zena just deals with it. High risk, low risk women, theatre, helping out on the ante/postnatal wards and with NIPEs or discharges- Zena never complains.
Zena is organised, efficient, challenges decisions when she feels there is a need for it and it is in the best interest of her women or babies.
Zena remains professional and polite. Despite some very busy shifts and heavy work load, she never loses her temper. Her nominator feels that the women and babies in her care are very safe.
Additionally Zena is respected, a very loved delivery suite team member with a great sense of humour.
Third Year Midwifery Student Asha Asalaw
Asha’s mentor wrote this nomination as she is such an amazing student midwife.
“Asha is always happy to help and to learn. She always smiles and is enthusiastic!
“Keep up the hard work and don’t stop being YOU”
It is an absolute pleasure to work with Asha.
