Congratulations to Our June 2017 Servant’s Heart Recipients
Physician Caregiver: B. Shields Stutts, MD
Nominated by Carolyn Posegate, Registered Nurse
“Dr. Stutts has been a wonderful asset for my husband, who has undergone several procedures for heart arrhythmias at BMH and in Salt Lake City. My husband recently presented with heart arrhythmia unlike any he has had before. Even though Dr. Stutts was out of town, he took the time to contact the ER doctor at BMH and coordinate care for him. It meant the world to us! Dr. Stutts continues to actively facilitate the best possible care and treatment for my husband.”
In response to being nominated, Dr. Stutts humbly said: “I just want to treat others the way I would want to be treated.”
Nurse Caregiver: Melissa Mercado, LPN
Nominated by: Dorothy Hansen, LPN Clinic Manager
“Melissa is always going above and beyond for our patients. A patient had a PKU baby who is unable to break down an amino acid and metabolize proteins. This patient also cares for her disabled husband. Melissa took the time to write a letter to a manufacturer about a special protein formula because the patient was unable to afford $300 a can. The company, however, did not respond, so she called them. They brought in two cases of the formula for the patient.
This is just one the many types of caring things Melissa does for all of her patients, coworkers, friends, and family. We are all blessed to be working by side her.”
Everyone’s a Caregiver: Karrie Moore, Clinical Analyst
Nominated by Rob Weis, IT Director
“Even when she isn’t at work, Karrie is there for our patients. While waiting for an appointment with Dr. Nathan Richardson in Pocatello, she saw an elderly woman getting out of the medical transport van in the parking lot. She later realized there had been an issue with the woman’s appointment and she wouldn’t be able to see the doctor. After Karrie’s visit, she saw the woman waiting for the transport van in the shade. She went over to her and learned that she would have to come back in a few days. But, Karrie noticed the woman was visibly in pain due to a shoulder issue.
Karrie found Dr. Richardson and explained the situation. He then saw the woman right away, which was a blessing because they also identified another issue that needed to be treated.”
