Woolverton named July 2021 CMH TULIP Award winner

Jamie Woolverton, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and patient care technician with Citizens Memorial Hospital Medical Surgical Department in Bolivar, was named the July 2021 CMH TULIP Award winner. She received the award Aug. 23.

The TULIP Award was established June 2021 by CMH and Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation and is a recognition program for outstanding nursing assistants, medical assistants and patient care technicians who assist in direct patient care.

Woolverton earned her CNA license in 2002 through the nursing assistant program at Bolivar High School. Soon after graduating she began working at Citizens Memorial Healthcare Facility and transferred to CMH Medical Surgical Department.

Woolverton was nominated by a patient’s wife for her kindness and compassionate care of her husband who has dementia.

The nomination read, “My elderly husband was admitted to the hospital late in the evening with serious confusion and due to COVID-19 restrictions I was not able to spend the night. When we arrived early the next morning, Jamie had already made a connection with him.”

The patient’s wife was very appreciative of Woolverton’s kindness and ability to make her husband smile. “She [Jamie] worked patiently, kindly and efficiently with him throughout that day and the next. She could and did make him smile no matter where his mind had wondered at the moment,” said the patient’s wife.

Woolverton was very touched by the nomination and also wanted to highlight her coworkers who make the medical surgical unit so special. “We have a great team. Everyone always works together and we all pull together to help each other,” Woolverton said.
