You like it? (background chatter) Oh no, I can’t remember them. (laughter) SANDY: Holly, plus it’s hot outside. Yes, hot, hot. What’s the next one? HELEN: Well at first I wanted to do challenging because of everything I’ve been through, but that would take me two hours to explain all that. GLENN: Are we done yet? No. (laughter) MARY: I’ve been here for thirty years… (background chatter, laughter) CHERYL: Worked for accounts payable for twenty years, in Bridgeton… uh oh… (laughter) CELIA: (laughter) That’s what I said, I’ve been here 15 years, I’m sorry. (laughter) you’re probably going to cut me later. I’m sorry. (laughter) JEFF: I mean if you want a blooper, I can hold it upside down, but… JANE: What compassionate care means to me is
loving people well right where they’re at. Compassionate care isn’t like this
heroic event that takes place every three weeks you know it’s every patient
that I take care of every family member that I encounter I have the opportunity
to love them well and that’s what is so rewarding to me. SANDY: I worked in a big city hospital where they knew New Jersey as an exit on the turnpike. No one knew my family. Just never felt like home. When I came back to Woodbury people that I was taking care of where my neighbors, my family, my friends, almost anybody that I knew, knew my parents. So at that point, from 1984 on, I always felt that I needed to take care of my patients as though they
were my family. ADA: I always strive to be kind, compassionate, and diligent in caring for my patients. I am very proud of what I do and who I am as an employee. I work in the MRI Department and our patients when they first see our magnet
is extremely intimidating and by showing those gestures it just goes a long way. EILEEN: I strive to provide a Wow experience not only because it’s the right thing to do
but it’s the way that we should treat everyone. Number one we have to listen
and hear what they’re telling us. Number two we have to pay attention to those details and we need to provide dignity and respect. to those customers and patients. Respect is not just given it’s something that’s earned. Through my career, through all these 50 years I can truly say I’ve had wonderful leadership,
the entire time. It’s been a fabulous journey I have no regrets and I have no complaints. It’s been wonderful. Inspira has taken me from crayons to
perfume and has made me who I am today, and I truly appreciate that. CHRISSY: I think it’s
important to be a good listener because patients want to be heard they want you
to know what they’re feeling and what they’re going through and if you tap
into that emotion you can actually relate. JEFF: One of the most rewarding things
for me working at the Life Center as a therapist is helping people regain
access to the community so they can not only maintain but regain their quality
of life. So having somebody who’s completely bed-bound, being able to give
them the tools necessary so they can regain access to the community and enjoy their life the way that it was meant to be. CELIA: I want patients to feel safe. Safety
has always been something that I strive for. So when you walk into the doors, I
want you to feel like you’re at home, and that you are safe and comfortable. HELEN: When I started working for the hospital system I was still in high school and
when I took the candy-striper position it was three to ten so I had to be home in immediately after I got done work because of curfews with my parents because I still lived at home. So I progressed into the LPN course at the high school. I graduated, then they put me as an LPN on
the geriatric cardiac floor and then, I was taking charge of the patients at
night because they didn’t have enough RNs going around at that time. So then
the supervisor came to me and said, “You know, you’re doing this job why don’t you go back to school and get paid for what you’re doing.” And that’s how I went back to school. MARY: Inspira has changed in the past thirty years with technology. We are
no longer handwriting our lab report slips. The need for delivering them
to the nursing station is now done through the computer, we also do not have the need to file our lab slips because it’s all computerized which would always
mess up our fingernails, our cuticles. CHERYL: I’m proud to work for Inspira that’s why I’ve been here for twenty years. and, uhm, I just like my coworkers they’re like family and you get through the day we have a problem you know we work
through it and they’re very helpful. We have a good team. GLENN: Inspira has changed
over the course of my ten years that I’ve been here by experiencing a tremendous
amount of growth from one hospital becoming several hospitals.
I believe if it was a movie I’d call it “150 and Climbing.” BOOTS: I’ve encountered a lot
of changes, a lot of good changes. And I’m proud to be part of the system. I’ve been promoted to different positions, and been given responsibilities that make me feel
special. Everyone’s been kind and great to me and
I’ll never forget the years that I’ve been there and all the experiences
that I’ve experienced and it’s all been good. SUSIE: I was hired 50 years ago and it was Bridgeton hospital at the time. My sister
was a nurse on the floor and she came home and told me they needed a clerk so
I came and applied I sat down at a desk filled out an application, Mr. Bailey who
took the application was sitting right next to me looked it over and said, “start
on Monday, 7 o’clock.” I didn’t know what the job
really consisted of but it was interesting I came in and they just
showed me how to do everything but I do want to thank Bridgeton hospital for
giving me that opportunity, because I don’t think they do that now you have to
go to school and at that time they just trained you right there and you know I
thank them so much and now I’ve been here for 50 years. I love it! ADA: One word that would describe my twenty-five years at Inspira would be, committed.
