Safety is a priority for Lynch who consistently rounds on all patients and quickly addresses needs. She double and triple checks orders to ensure safety. She picks up shifts so her fellow employees won’t be short-staffed, and she will stay after her shift is over if the ED is hectic.
She provides new employees with step-by-step instructions on ED processes including sample forms for everything from radio logs to transport forms. During downtime in the ED, Lynch makes sure cabinets are stocked and sweeps and mops floors as needed.
“Carrie treats everyone she encounters with respect and holds others to that same standard,” wrote her nominator. “She always has a positive attitude, and you can always count on her to do the right thing. She goes above and beyond to create a great work environment.”
Lynch has worked at Lincoln Memorial Hospital since 2019.
