National Nurse’s Week was celebration May 6-10 and ended on a high note with acknowledging the extraordinary efforts of a member of the Nursing staff.
The newly formed Carroll County Memorial Hospital Foundation inaugural event was a success.
Ms. Rector served as the Director of Nursing at Carroll County Memorial Hospital from 1998 to 2003 when she transitioned to a nursing leadership role at a facility in Kansas City. In October 2011, Ms. Rector returned to the CCMH family as the Director of Policy and Compliance and was promoted to Chief Compliance Officer in January of this year. Ms. Rector served as the Interim Chief Nursing Officer during the candidate search and initially was reluctant to be considered for the position. After much discussion and pursuasion from her co-workers and peers she officially entered the candiate pool.
CCMH Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Tindle, expresses his gratitude to the many people involved in the hiring process. "We would like to thank all the Nursing staff for their input on the characteristics and qualifications for this position. Further, we would like to thank the Nursing committee that reviewed all application submissions and performed on-site interviews with candidates. We would like to thank the Medical Staff for their participation in this process. And finally, we would like to thank all the candidates who expressed interest in this position. This has been a sucessful process because of the hardwork and dedication of each person involved ." Mr. Tindle notes that this process is one example of how the newly appointed Leadership Council wants to implement change in an effort to improve participation and teamwork. Since each position works as a member of the team, team style evaluation and interviewing for key positions will be utilized. "We hope that those who were a part of this process and those who witnessed this process are pleased with it and the outcome," says Mr. Tindle.
