Again this year, from hundreds of nominations, an independent panel of judges has chosen 10 extraordinary nursing professionals to represent thousands of their colleagues at the annual Nursing Excellence Awards.
Held during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, this year’s luncheon was on May 10 at Cobb Galleria.
Allison Christou from Wellstar Kennestone Hospital was among the honorees who went above and beyond the call of duty to make a significant impact on their patients.
Christou was nominated by executive director Nancy Doolittle who in part, wrote: “Allison always goes above and beyond to improve the quality of care provided to our patients. The story (you just heard) does not end here. For Christmas Allison requested that her husband provide her with a jump kit so that she will always have the supplies needed if she is ever called into action again or in the field. I am proud to nominate Allison for quick thinking, selfless dedication to safe quality care.”
