Melissa MacCombie, RN of LRGHealthcare Nominated for Clint Jones Nursing Award

LACONIA — The Foundation for Healthy Communities has announced that Melissa MacCombie, RN of Lakes Region General Hospital, was nominated for the Clint Jones 2014 New Hampshire Nursing Award.

This award recognizes a registered nurse, new to the profession of nursing, who exemplifies the practice of quality nursing care and demonstrates a career commitment to the nursing profession. Selection criteria include a demonstration of excellence and enthusiasm in the delivery of patient care; communication with patients, their families and healthcare colleagues; commitment to nursing as a career; and inspiration to other nurses and healthcare professionals as a role model.

Diane Main, RN- Director of Patient Care Services said "Melissa has strong clinical assessment skills and is very thorough in her care with each patient that she is caring for. In her delivery of care, Melissa goes above and beyond making sure all the patients' needs are being met. She has compassion and empathy and is a strong patient advocate. She does this in a calm, professional manner putting her patients at ease, providing the crucial emotional support and is able to teach, goes over the plan of care and follows through with the plan whenever there is a change. Whenever I am doing rounding on the patients, the patients share how well they are being cared for, they always share how "special" they feel when Melissa is caring for them and they definitely remember her by name. This speaks volumes to me as then I know she is communicating well with each patient as to who she is, what she is doing for them, with them and how they will get there while she is caring for them during her shift. Melissa takes the extra time with the family members and will contact physicians as well as surgeons to make sure they come to see the patients in a prompt manner whenever there are major questions or concerns being voiced."
