Eduardo Hernandez is September Employee of the Month. Eduardo joined CareMeridian in March 1999 and is a CNA for CareMeridian Santiago. He was nominated by Debbie Morris, CareMeridian Director of CaseManagement for Southern California, Arizona and Nevada.
Debbie says: “I have observed Eduardo for several years and he is the very definition of the type of employee/caretaker we want at CareMeridian. He always treats our patients, visitors and fellow staff members with compassion and dignity. He is the ultimate team player — always pitching in when something or someone needs attention. He shows initiative – never waiting to be told what to do; he just quietly gets it done — and done the ‘CareMeridian Way.’ All this, and with a smile and positive attitude at all times!”
Adds Vice President of Clinical Programs Rita Pathmanaban, “Eduardo has been a devoted employee and the ultimate team player at the CareMeridian Santiago since it opened in 1999. He has been there through evacuations due to fires, and through canyon floods. Solid as a rock! No need to wonder who would show up to cover emergency situations — you could be sure Eduardo would say yes if he possibly could. He gladly multi-tasks to ensure patients have everything they need. In the many years that I supervised him, I do not recall Eduardo ever displaying a bad attitude; it’s more likely that you would hear him say: ‘We are here for our patients’ if the workload was challenging. I am privileged to know Eduardo.”
CareMeridian’s employees of the month are nominated based on outstanding service and commitment to the company, its facilities, staff, patients and providers.
