Outstanding Service Award
Barb is a dedicated nurse and a committed supervisor at UMD's Health Services.
Her genuine care for her patients is apparent to everyone who comes into contact
with her. To better service the needs of a college community, Barb became re-certified
as a college health nurse. Her first priority is with the students.
During the last few years, Health Services has experiences staff turnover.
Along with the unexpected loss of pharmacy operations. When this happened, Barb
stepped in to re-implement a dispensary so Health Services could continue providing
medication to its patients. It was a huge, time-consuming job, but Barb didn't
hesistate to jump in and fix the problem.
Barb is always bringing innovative ideas to the forefront. Her suggestions
helped form the triage program at Health Services, which allows patients to
be seen more efficiently.
It is a pleasure to present Barb with this Continuous Service award for her
hard work and dedication to her patients.
