Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center housekeeping aide Rosaura Gaytan was honored this year with the Nebraska Hospital Association Caring Kind Award.
Gaytan was the hospital's employee of the year for 2007.
Gaytan has worked at the hospital since February 2006. She was described by her nominators as dependable and someone who can be relied upon to perform her duties each day, thoroughly and accurately. She is always pleasant and kind, and has a smile and greeting for everyone she meets. In addition to her usual duties, Gaytan is also always willing to provide extra help to the hospital’s Spanish speaking customers.
For 29 years, the NHA has paid tribute to Nebraska's most caring hospital workers with the Caring Kind award. This prestigious award honors outstanding health care employees who have demonstrated compassion for patients, cooperation with co-workers and dedication to excellence in their job responsibilities. Hospitals across the state select one Caring Kind recipient from within their respective institutions to be recognized during the NHA Annual Convention.
This year, 68 employees were honored at the Caring Kind awards luncheon held on Oct. 31 at the Cornhusker Marriott hotel in Lincoln.
