DeKalb Community Hospital celebrated National Nurses Week recently awarding Lindi Carter, RN with the hospital’s annual ‘Nurse of the Year’ award. The honor was awarded to Carter by her peers in nursing and presented by OR Director Nancy Trapp, along with ER Director Daniel Goodson, Chief Nursing Officer Kim Frazier and Chief Executive Officer Sue Conley.
“We are very proud to work with such dedicated nurses, and it is no surprise that Lindi was voted to receive this much deserved award. She gives one hundred and ten percent each and every day and always puts our patients first,” said CNO Kim Frazier of DeKalb Community Hospital and Stones River Hospital.
Upon receiving the award, Carter humbly replied, “I am shocked. There are so many wonderful nurses that work here (DeKalb Community Hospital), and I am humbled and overwhelmed. I have been so very proud to be a part of our hospital nursing team. I have watched them care for our patients, including many of my friends and family with dedication and heart. They always go the extra mile along with a good working knowledge about medicine and nursing care and the personal care to back it up. I would like to take a moment to honor all of the nurses at DCH. Many people never get to see the sacrifices these fine people make to save lives and care for patients day after day, but I do.”
Carter received a plaque along with flowers donated by DeKalb County Florist. Additional door prizes for various nurses were donated by DeKalb Farmers Co-op, China Garden, A-1 Hair Salon, Bert Driver Nursery and White Possum Grille.
