GEM – Goes the Extra Mile

Every Quarter, one nurse from each office is recognized for being extraordinary.  These nurses show exemplary qualities and professionalism.

Saddle Brook: Nathalie Hyppolite LPN, Dina Nonez LPN and Marie Jerome LPN : This quarter we wanted to recognize not one, but three special ladies!  This team of nurses worked with two clients, siblings, during the peak of the pandemic.  While the family struggled with a COVID related    crisis, these nurses stepped up to ensure the children did not  miss any of the care and nurturing they are used to.  They worked all hours of the day in full head to toe PPE, sometimes having to rearrange their own schedules to help with last   minute coverage.  Nathalie, Dina and Marie were truly the foundation that held this family together during one of the most difficult times in their lives.  They are greatly appreciated and we are so proud to call them part of our team.
