Marja Vigil RN, PACU

Recognized for:  AIDET
Nominated by: Five of her co-workers

Marja was nominated five times by her fellow nurses! She was described in her first nomination as “thoughtful, caring, knowledgeable and always willing to lend a hand.” A second colleague goes on to say that “Marja is fully invested in her patients, and that she would be her number one pick for a recovery room nurse.” The third nomination we received tells the story of a patient who was extremely anxious, and goes on to tell how Marja not only made patient feel comfortable, but calmed him down, making sure he knew he was important. Another co-worker states that Marja is “a wealth of information and is always willing to jump in and help.” The last nomination comes from a traveler who tells us that Marja has shown her “the meaning of true dedication to nursing”, she tells of how Marja, during the recent avalanche, stayed and comforted that family.

Marja demonstrates AIDET every day, and HCMC is so fortunate to have her on our wonderful surgery team!
