Spirit Of Excellence Employee December: AMANDA HATFIELD, RN


Amanda Hatfield, RN,Discharge Nurse/Wound Care, began her career at Methodist Hospital in July 2008 as an LPN on the Medical Unit. In 2011, she received her Associate in Nursing degree from Henderson Community College. Amanda worked on the Surgical Unit for 3 years before moving
to the Discharge Nurse position in 2012.

A 2004 graduate of Union County High School, Amanda took a health service class in high school, which she says guided her toward pursing a health career. Her mother-in-law, Carol Hatfield, RN, Medical Unit, also provided encouragement and support. Amanda is now pursuing a BSN degree in Nursing through Western Governor's University. In her current position, she may be found on any floor throughout the hospital handling discharges. She discusses discharge orders from the doctor with patients about to go home, makes sure any outpatient procedures have been scheduled, goes over new or changed medications, and provides other patient education, as needed. "We also sign up patients for the patient portal," Amanda says, "which allows them to access their online medical records." She also helps with admissions, starts IVs, and helps Lisa Pittman, RN, perform wound care on Mondays.

"I love being out on all the floors and not doing one thing all the time," she adds. Amanda works from 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m., four days a week.

She spends most of her free time with her one-year-old son, Cole, who she says "keeps me on my toes." She also likes to deer hunt with Ryan, her husband of five years, who works for a heating and air-conditioning company in Evansville. She says she couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with and she appreciates being nominated for the Spirit Award, "especially since it's a peer-nominated thing." Congratulations, Amanda, and thank you for your dedicated service to Methodist Hospital's patients!




Spirit Of Excellence Employee January: LAURA HISH, RN

Laura Hish, RN, Nursery/NICU, began her Methodist career in May 1998, after earning her Associate's degree in Nursing from Henderson Community College. She has always
worked in the Nurseries (Newborn and NICU) and says from the time she was a young child she wanted to work with babies. Laura plans to complete her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Southern Indiana in December 2015.

The favorite part of her job is interacting with parents of the babies she cares for. "I get to meet them at a happy time in their lives," she says. "It's a fun time to be a part of." She also notes many of her co-workers are among her closest friends. "Some of them I've known since high school. We do things together outside of work and are a close bunch."

Laura was also quick to mention neonatologists Dr. Aljabi and Dr. Raj. "We love working with them. They treat us as their equal," she says. "They listen to us and take our input very seriously."

She and her husband of almost five years, Jason, live in Junction, IL, outside of Shawneetown, where Jason is a full-time farmer. He brought two sons to their marriage
- Daine, now 20, who farms with his dad, and Dawson, a seventh-grader at Gallatin Co. Jr. High. Laura has a son, Lane, a freshman at Union County High School, and a daughter, Hadley, a sixth-grader at St. Ann's in Morganfield.

Receiving the Spirit Award was "a huge, huge shock," says Laura, so much so that she broke out in hives and was rendered speechless. "It was a wonderful surprise, though, and one that I had no idea was coming." Congratulations, Laura, on your recognition!
