Carol Makes Patient Wishes Come True

By | Tidewell News | No Comments

Congratulations to June Tidewell Difference Award winner Carol Gallegos, LCSW, social worker for the Venice/Englewood home teams, who was chosen based on this nomination:

Carol comes to work every morning with a smile, and says “good morning beautiful!” Whether you are a patient or a colleague, Carol makes everyone feel beautiful. Her kindness and bright personality shines on those who are in a very difficult and often very stressful time in their life.  Carol has made precious memories happen for a few patients and their families, with help from her colleagues. There was a wedding ceremony and Carol saw to every detail. She arranged for the Chaplain, the cake and the table scape — complete with a linen tablecloth, crystal glasses and a beverage decanter. She also arranged for a photographer to capture this precious moment. It was the last time this wife would hear her husband’s words; shortly after the ceremony the patient passed away. One week later the patient’s wife came to the office to thank Carol and the team. What could have been perceived as a dark time was overshadowed by joy and a wish fulfilled. Carol also helped make a trip to Universal Studios possible for a very young patient and his family; it was a dream came true for them. And, in another instance, she saw to it that a patient’s two daughters got to experience champagne and caviar just as the patient had done in her younger years in Paris — another wish fulfilled. Carol is always willing to help a patient or colleague in need. She is an encouragement and a blessing to work with, and to all the patients and families whose lives she touches daily.

Carol was recognized by CEO Gerry Radford with a certificate, a special Tidewell Difference pin, a $50 gift card and one day of personal leave.

Nominations for the Tidewell Difference are accepted at any time, and can be made using the form posted on Happenings. All non-supervisory colleagues – full-time, part-time or PRN – are eligible. In order to win, nominees must be in good standing and have been employed with Tidewell for at least six months. Nominations should be based on specific action(s) taken by a colleague that demonstrates one or more Tidewell Core Values. 


Consider the Conversation – Englewood, FL

By | Tidewell News, Upcoming Events | No Comments

Consider the Conversation is a remarkable, thought-provoking film that looks at many of the issues that we will all face at the end-of-life.  It opens the floodgates of thought and conversation on this most difficult and often taboo subject.  It helps to illustrate many areas of improvement in our health care system.  I would encourage everyone to watch this important film including physicians, healthcare workers, patients and families.  This film will help us to be better physicians, better nurses, better patients and better people.
