Stephanie Schopieray’s personal qualities of “excellence, compassion and respect” were highlighted in the Mercy Health Friends of Nursing Award nomination, submitted by a coworker who is an RN:
A patient passed away during the night shift and the nurse was on the phone when the family arrived. Stephanie stepped up, greeted the family, sat with the family and comforted the family during this time. She answered questions from the family and didn’t leave their side until the nurse was available. She went above and beyond her patient care assistant scope to make sure this difficult time was a little easier for the patient’s family.
Stephanie works on the Mercy Health Hackley Campus in N4.
Congratulations, Stephanie, on setting a wonderful example of putting the needs of the patients [and their families] at the center of our work.
