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. Respiratory Therapist Sandra Greenwood was a recent recipient of an I CARE Award.
Greenwood was nominated for her I CARE Award by the ICU’s Kaitlyn Cowden, BSN, RN. In her nomination letter, Cowden wrote:
In the unit we had a patient who was critically and terminally ill. She had been with us for almost four months. During her lengthy stay we all got to know her family quite well as they visited every day. The patient’s husband would talk with staff at length each day. When speaking with him he mentioned very often how much he valued speaking with our Respiratory Therapist Sandy. He would say how much he loved speaking with her because he felt like he could open up to her on a personal level. He always appreciated the conversations with staff while he was here, but he said that talking to Sandy was extremely comforting to him as he felt like talking to a friend and felt like he could confide in her. He mentioned multiple times how much he appreciated her, her company and the care she provided his wife. Sandy is always someone who goes above and beyond and provides such incredible care to her patients and their families. She deserves to be recognized for all her work!
