Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital’s I CARE Award recognizes staff members from all areas of the hospital who go above and beyond their regular job responsibilities to make BWFH a great place to work and receive care. Emergency Department staff nurse Kimberly Sullivan was a recent recipient of an I CARE Award.

Sullivan was nominated for her I CARE Award by fellow ED staff nurse Meghan Davey. In her nomination letter, Davey wrote:

I would like to nominate Kim for an I CARE Award for providing compassionate care to a pediatric patient that arrived in our ED. He came in on his birthday, after not feeling well all day, and Kim attempted to make him feel better by constructing a small birthday poster with stickers and photos and had available staff sign it. No one likes to be in the ED, but especially not a kid on their birthday. Sometimes it is the little things that we can do for our patients that make it just a little bit better. Kim was able to put a smile on this patient’s face by going that extra mile. Thanks Kim!

Do you know a BWFH employee who has gone above and beyond to demonstrate BWFH’s I CARE Standards? To nominate a fellow colleague for an I CARE Award, please visit BWFH - Vitals (MGB login required). A team of colleagues will personally recognize the employee by presenting them with balloons, a thank you card and a gift certificate redeemable in the cafeteria or Atrium Café.
