Congratulations to our December 2019 Servant’s Heart Recipients

Medical Team

Nicholas B. Pearson, DO, Orthopedic Surgeon & Sports Medicine Specialist

“Dr. Pearson is good to both patients and staff. When he asks how someone is doing he really stops and listens. He has the gift of showing deep understanding towards others. He is a physician who will both make a call and take a call. Patients love him and he gives good hugs.”

-Robyn T. Shoemaker, LPN, Clinic Manager

Nursing Team Member

Ed Bond, Certified Nurse Assistant

“Ed is the longest serving nurse’s aid at Bingham Memorial’s Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (SNRC). He is very compassionate, respectful, and has as positive of an attitude as anyone in the SNRC. Ed is always smiling, acts professional, and does his very best to make sure the residents are well cared for. Residents and their families find he is a good listener. He does his best to respond to all call lights no matter which hall he’s assigned to.

“Residents rave about how well he cares for them, and he never complains about the assigned task—no matter how hard it is. Many residents have named Ed as one of our hardest workers and always willing to help when special needs arise.”

-Lori Wanstrom, RN, and Amy (Montoya) Carothers, Social Services

Support Team Member

Alyssa Neff, Nursing Informatics Specialist

“Recently, Alyssa was helping in the Pain & Ambulatory Recovery Center (PARC). The computer system didn’t capture Dr. Pugmire’s dilatation and curettage (d/c) medication reconciliation. As such, the patient’s medication didn’t get e-filed to their pharmacy. Alyssa helped Chris Smout, the nurse in the PARC, but to no avail. The medication reconciliation form couldn’t be sent. Alyssa learned that Dr. Pugmire had finished for the day but had gone to the local movie theater with her family. Alyssa hurried over with a script pad and asked Dr. Pugmire to write a new script for the patient so the patient wouldn’t have to wait for their medication. Truly above and beyond.”

-Carolyn Hansen, FNP-C, Chief Nursing Officer
