Congratulations to the winners of our 2019 nursing and patient care awards, which are presented annually during Nurses Week at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago.

The 2019 Nursing Excellence Award winner is Jackie Standridge, RN. She is described by colleagues as a “natural leader who has made countless contributions to the organization by being an active member of the newly formed shared governance team, and a committed member of the nursing optimization transition.” Jackie also received praise for her work with new nurse orientation and mentoring students through their clinical rotations. “She welcomes challenges and seeks out opportunities to rectify those challenges. She is committed to our patient care model by assuring safe care and open communication with the health care team, providing compassion to all patients she serves,” one nomination said.

The 2019 Exemplary Achievement Award goes to Sabrina Mazon, a patient care assistant. One nomination said, “Sabrina is driven and uses nursing school knowledge to deliver great care.” Sabrina received praise for anticipating the needs of patients with a focus on patient safety. “She is always helpful and maintains a positive attitude. Per her nominations, she is accommodating, understanding and empathetic, also known as an angel,” said another nomination.

Congratulations to both of our 2019 patient care award winners.
