Mercy's 2014 Clinical Excellence Winners Exemplify Nurses 'Leading the Way'

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Thu, May 1, 2014 - 1:38 PM in Clinical Staff , Employees , Awards and Recognition

         

Patients often recognize that a nurse is the health care professional with whom they and their families have the most direct contact. But they might not realize that nurses also are leaders in improving the quality of care and expanding access to care. That’s why May 6-12 is celebrated as National Nurses Week, an annual opportunity for communities to recognize the full range of nurses’ contributions.

45-Year Employee Saidi Eckert Awarded Star Performer of the Year

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Tue, Apr 8, 2014 - 1:37 PM in Awards and Recognition , Employees

         

Forty-five years ago, Saidi Eckert arrived in Canton with little money and no job. She says she wanted to follow God’s will for her life and was asking Him for direction. God answered her prayer.

Saidi says she heard God say, “Follow me. You see that building over there, which says Mercy? You go there. They have mercy and will tend to you. You stay there until I come back for you.” Saidi smiles when she says, “God never came back so I am still here.”

Restart the Heart: Rapid Response with AED Saves a Life at Mercy

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Tue, Oct 22, 2013 - 1:39 PM in Employees

         

On June 22, Leroy Essick’s heart stopped. Thanks to the quick response from Mercy Medical Center employees and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), Essick’s heart is beating again. He can’t recall how long he suffered from shoulder pain, but he says it happened off and on for some time. “Anytime I would get discomfort, I’d take cayenne pepper,” Essick recalls. “And when I’d break out into a cold sweat, I’d have to lay down.” But this past spring the pain worsened, and Essick says it started to go down his arm.
