SALISBURY – Angel Dietrich, Certified Nursing Assistant of TidalHealth Peninsula Regional’s 5 Layfield patient care area, is the September 2022 Sunshine Award recipient for her kindness, professionalism and compassion.
A fellow team member wrote the following in support of her nomination.
Angel has such a big heart. We have a patient who has been on our unit for a couple of months who had no belongings when admitted. Angel brought in a few outfits, bought her new nightgowns and a pair of slippers. The patient was so happy to have clothes of her own.
After a week of wearing them, Angel borrowed the items from the patient, took them to the laundry mat after work, washed and dried them and brought them back the next day.
It’s such an act of compassion and caring to do something so unselfishly. Our patient feels so good that she makes sure we see each new outfit when she changes into one.
Angel Dietrich was honored in a ceremony before her coworkers, and presented with fresh flowers, a pin and a certificate recognizing her exceptional devotion to team and patient care.
