Our first Shining Star this issue is Josh Robinson, PT. Josh works at Linda Vista Nursing and Rehab Center in Ashland, Oregon.
Here is what his nominator had to say.
Josh is particularly skilled at communication and being authentic. He has fun at work and by demonstrating these qualities and he is able to develop realtionships with the most challenging patients to facilitate their progress. He is a strong team player and builder of relationships with facility staff.
Josh applied for and is working through the DORit program. He has been stepping up and covering for me all year and shows a desire to learn and grow. He regularly “goes the extra mile” and says, ” I can do whatever is needed.” He also serves on the facility safety committee and was supervising an SOU student who needed volunteer hours who recently was hired on as our restorative coordinator. I believe he was an instrumental part of why she applied for the job.
Josh believes that what he does at Infinity makes a difference and he shows up to work every day with a positive attitude, modeling the way by applying our Clinical Model and leading groups, fostering a culture of trust and respect with peers and patients and showing up ready to do what is needed to grow and learn and contribute to the team.
Our second Shining Star this issue is Kate Johnson, COTA. Kate works at Carson Tahoe Transitional Rehabilitation Center in Carson City, Nevada.
Here is what her nominator had to say.
This therapist is particularly skilled at: Managing her time to ensure that appropriate patient care is provided each and every day. Even on those days when nothing seems to go right, she finds a w ay to re-group, and finish strong.
Kate is as flexible as they come! She takes the initiative to volunteer to re-arrange her schedule to accommodate patient care needed, as well as the scheduling needs of her co-workers.
During this time of increased illnesses and bad weather, she is looking for creative ways to get it all covered. She looks ahead to upcoming needs, and offers suggestions for solutions, rather than complaining about the problems.
