Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Krista Beatty, RN, a registered nurse on the Three South nursing unit. Beatty has been employed at Passavant 14 years.
A thankful patient nominated Beatty for the honor. “I received exceptional care from Ms. Beatty. She brought me warm blankets, held them on my forehead and continued to turn them to get warmth and relief from my pain. She was compassionate in everything she did. Plus, she explained my medications and how soon they took effect. I was so fortunate to have her as my nurse.”
As a registered nurse, Beatty is responsible for assessing patients, communicating with doctors, treating and caring for patients, educating patients and their families about medical conditions and medication and being a patient advocate.
“I always take time to listen to my patients and let them know I’m here to help,” Beatty said.
Beatty and her husband, Jared, are the parents of two children, Jocelyn and Nila.
The Employee of the Month at Passavant receives eight hours off with pay, an Employee of the Month plaque, an Employee of the Month pin, a close parking space for one month in the physicians’ parking garage and a decorated cake.
