Princeton Baptist Medical Center Recognizes Healthcare Heroes with Annual Nursing Honors

Jun 23, 2020

Princeton Baptist Medical Center recently honored four staff members with annual nursing awards, the highest form of recognition presented annually by the hospital.

Letisha Shields, RN, Manager of the Medical Intensive Care Unit, was presented with the Ida V. Moffett Award and also presented with the Outstanding Service Award – Nursing Leader.

Aspen Perry, RN, Surgical Intensive Care Unit, was presented with the Outstanding Service Award – Charge Nurse.  

Leah Kornegay, 5 West Oncology, was presented with the Outstanding Service Award - Nursing Care Assistant.

The Ida V. Moffett Award - named in memory of one of the most beloved and influential Alabamians in health care whose nursing career spanned 65 years, nearly half of which she spent with the Baptist Hospital system - is bestowed upon the nurse who best exemplifies the Princeton Philosophy of Patient Care, the principles of which were established by Moffett during her tenure.                                         

  • Treat the patient as the most important person in the hospital.
  • Build self-confidence in everyone.
  • Never tolerate mediocrity and insensitivity.
  • Put in a full day's work and then some.
  • Never say, "It's not my job.”
  • Take some of the patient's burden on yourself and transfer some of your own comfort and convenience to the one in need.
  • Never find a substitute for the human touch.
  • Allow yourself to care, really care, for the people for whom you are responsible. Love them and get involved in their struggle.

Outstanding Service Awards are presented to members of nursing leadership, charge nurses, registered nurses or nursing care assistants in recognition of outstanding patient care who meets the following criteria:

  • Acts as a patient advocate
  • Displays a commitment to quality care and performance improvement
  • Demonstrates a positive attitude with patients, families and other staff members
  • Shows concern for the welfare of others by going the "extra mile"
  • Exemplifies the mission of Brookwood Baptist Health and in keeping with Princeton's nursing philosophy
  • Demonstrates support for hospital and unit management
  • Plays an active role in unit activities

According to Brookwood Baptist Health Chief Nursing Officer, Robbie Hindman, “Providing our patients with the highest quality care is our most important priority. We have an amazing team of healthcare heroes, and these individuals exemplify the ideals of what it means to serve with compassion and dedication. I am very proud of these nurses who, along with their peers, have had an opportunity in recent months to showcase their selfless character during one of the most trying times in our nation’s history with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
