2017 Caught You Caring recipient
Amanda Riddle truly embodies a caregiver. She lives the values and demonstrates true advocacy and empathy for patients, families and staff. She always greets patients and their families to see if they are having a great experience during their hospital stay. Her colleagues say she is always willing to support her colleagues when they need a helping hand. Recently, Amanda noticed that one of the floor’s newer nurses was struggling with her current patient load. Amanda rushed in to help by performing blood draws and handling lab work so that her colleague could focus on her other patients with more urgent needs.
Her supervisor describes Amanda as a co-worker who has a “passion for the work that she does which is impossible to miss. Whenever Amanda is on the unit, she will not let you be in the trenches alone.”
