Milestone: OMC gives kudos to Olympic Medical Home Health staff

Lorraine Wall, chief nursing officer and hospital chief operating officer at Olympic Medical Center, recently honored five Olympic Medical Home Health team members at a board of commissioners meeting.

“These employees do an excellent job of accommodating the needs of our patients,” Wall said.

They include:

• Jennifer Loftin, referral intake/scheduling coordinator, who’s “an asset to the home health team and excels at communicating with patients and their family members”;

• Leslie Morfeld, home health aide who “communicates thoroughly and effectively with patients, which helps improve outcomes and patient independence”;

• Brian Cimala, a visit nurse who is “a problem solver and critical thinker, and provides quality, compassionate care”;

• Patients on the West End appreciate the attentive care provided by case manager Laura Dotlich, and,

• Eleanore Hafer, a physical therapist who “often arranges her schedule to accommodate high-priority admissions and patients with urgent needs.”

The efforts of these employees, along with the entire Home Health staff, contributed to ABILITY Network naming Olympic Medical Home Health as a Top Agency of the 2018 HomeCare Elite, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States, OMC staff said.
