Congratulations to Hayley Johnson, St. Vincent Kokomo Birthing Center, January Associate of the Month!

A nurse called in sick for the day shift, which left the Birthing Center short in staff. That morning, three ladies in very active labor arrived one after the other. We were swamped and sinking. Hayley wasn't scheduled but had kindly worked the night before for another associate (who had been approved for the night off so she could attend a party). Hayley then stayed over until almost noon to help admit these labors and babies, as they arrived shortly after being admitted. If she had not stayed over and worked 16+ hours, our patients would not have received the prompt care and attention that they did.
