Our Most Recent CARNATION Honoree

Congratulations to Bonnie Schuchart, Same Day Surgery – Our CARNATION Care Award honoree in January 2018!

Nursing Support Team Members are the “front line” staff in our hospital and work closely with patients, family and other staff to provide safe care during their hospital stay. They build positive relationships with the patients and families which can be key to a successful recovery.

The Carnation Care Award is a quarterly award given to an outstanding Nursing Support Team Member that demonstrates consistent qualities above their expected performance at Hanover Hospital. The staff person must consistently demonstrate excellence through extraordinary service and compassionate care while being a role model for their peers.

  • Compassionate – motivation to help and promote healing
  • Ambition – desire to provide the best care above and beyond
  • Remarkable – extraordinary service and attitude
  • Noble – honors the values, mission and vision of our organization
  • Appreciation – aware of the goal and appreciates teamwork
  • Trustworthy – dependable and flexible
  • Integrity – reliable and honest
  • Outgoing – positive attitude
  • Nurturing – caring towards others

Bonnie was nominated by a coworker for being a role model for compassionate care.

"Bonnie is the heart of the SDS team. She is willing to do anything to help the unit run more smoothly and efficiently. Recently, we have been changing the process and flow in our unit and Bonnie has not only been instrumental in helping to facilitate this change, she has also been extremely flexible in her ever changing roles and responsibilities. To add to this, Bonnie is a source of comfort for our patients. They love her smile and she is always willing to comfort our patients at a very anxious time for them. She talks with them and uses humor to help them feel more calm about their upcoming surgery or procedure. In addition, Bonnie is a great person for our Total Joint Replacement patients to speak with. She has been through the surgery herself and can help them to feel more confident and in control of their situation. Bonnie is a true role model for compassionate care. She is very deserving of this award."
