Baptist Tipton

Sandra Poole

Sandra Poole, head nurse on the hospital’s inpatient unit, has also taken responsibility for the COVID Command Center on many nights with a smile and a can-do attitude.

The co-worker who nominated Sandra Poole had this to say: “My nominee is very kind and a hard worker, no matter what time of the day or night, and is always there and willing to help with patients and staff. Everyone loves working with her, including me.”

Her nominator also said Sandra and her team are very helpful for everyone. They not only do their work, but they have been responsible for the Command Center on top of everything else they do. They never complain and always work hard. They treat everyone with kindness and respect and always follow the Golden Rule.

Georgia Harris

Georgia Harris has more than 11 years of experience in the Environmental Services department and was nominated by a team member for coming to the aid of a visitor.

Georgia routinely walks the hallways to check all areas, including the nutrition room, where she found a visitor unconscious. She immediately took action and stayed with the visitor until help arrived. At the end of her shift, Georgia returned to visit her new patient, who expressed gratitude for her care.

The team member wrote, “Georgia’s compassionate response helped to make this situation a positive outcome. This is just one of many examples of Georgia’s sweet nature. She stepped outside her comfort zone and went beyond her call of duty to make a difference in someone’s life.”

“Georgia’s compassion and empathy for others exemplifies what a Service First Champion should be,” said James Grantham, Baptist Union County’s CEO and administrator. “Outstanding team members like Georgia make a real difference at Baptist Union County and in the lives of our patients.”
