Patti Hudson, Vice President Patient Care Services, presented the Nursing Assistant Excellence Award to Ms. Boos in front of her clinical peers and administration during a called meeting that evolved into a celebration of Ms. Boos.  

The CNA Excellence Award recognizes the special impact and importance of CNAs on patient care and the community’s health. Successful CNAs are those individuals who are compassionate, caring, flexible, professional and understand that each individual in their care has unique needs and personalities.

One nomination from a peer described Ms. Boos in helping a distressed patient by sitting and calming the patient and even staying after her shift to be sure the patient was calmer.  “I have observed patience, positivity and compassion from Ms. Boos during even the most challenging times. This time was especially challenging and I do not know how I would have gotten through my shift without her.”

Another nomination from a patient’s family described Ms. Boos as a “special joy to my husband and me while bringing a very energetic and caring approach to everything she does.” The wife continued, “I went home to sleep knowing that my husband was in great care. Ms. Boos is a true gem with great potential. She allows a patient to relax and focus on healing and the family to rest easier knowing that their loved ones are in exceptional care.”

The CNA of the Year recognition was established to honor local Certified Nurse Assistants for their many contributions to the care and health of Carteret’s patients. Ms. Boos was nominated by her co-workers, patients and physicians who wanted to recognize her for her superior patient service, cheerful demeanor and dedication to the hospital and her team.  

As a recipient of the Certified Nursing Excellence Award, Ms. Boos receives an expense paid trip to a CNA convention of her choice and $200 cash.  She will also be challenged to continue to display excellence in caring and be a role model at Carteret Health Care.

The CNA Excellence Award was open to all CNAs at Carteret Health Care. Nominations for Excellence Awards may be submitted by letter describing how the individual demonstrates excellence in nursing and are due 30 days prior to the announced presentation date.
