A group of faculty and staff were honored for exemplifying the Brigham Way during a luncheon with Brigham Health President Betsy Nabel, MD, hosted in the Zinner Breakout Room on Feb. 5.
The event, held quarterly, celebrated the many ways in which members of the Brigham community go above and beyond to care for patients and their families, visitors and each other.
Among those recognized was Mohamed Warsame, a concierge in Police and Security, for creating a welcoming environment for patients, families and staff by making it a priority to greet everyone with a warm smile.
Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) nurses Marjorie Rogers, BSN, RN, CCRN, and Karen Meyers, RN, and Maria “Paula” Brito, a unit associate from Environmental Services, were nominated for their thoughtful, attentive care of a patient faced with homelessness. The trio offered the patient clothing from their own homes and a warm pair of shoes.
“It really touches my heart hearing about all the ways that you go above and beyond to make the Brigham the best place to work and receive care,” Nabel told honorees. “You help make the Brigham a truly special place.”
If you see an individual or team going above and beyond their responsibilities to help a patient, visitor or colleague, nominate them for the campaign by emailing TheBrighamWay@partners.org.
