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.
Carol Poole from Piedmont Newnan Hospital was among the honorees who went above and beyond the call of duty to make a significant impact on their patients. Poole was nominated by her co-worker, Joan Aina, who in part, wrote: "Carol generally goes beyond giving basic care. She supports patients psychologically, and makes them smile with her gentle humor. I am a nurse practitioner co-worker to Carole and I do notice this things. She is very sincere in her approach to care. If anyone has nominated her before, I am nominating her too."
