Congratulations to Peter Muskiewicz, Music Therapist, who was nominated by Elizabeth Boyer, 3 Lacks RN Clinical Staff Nurse. During the surprise ceremony, Muskiewicz said: “Thank you, this is awesome. I am honored.”
The nomination reads:
“On March 31, I cared for two confused and agitated patients whose rooms were next to each other. At one point in the day, both patients were agitated and standing in the hallway. Peter was passing by in the hallway and offered to spend time with one of the patients. The first patient was excited when Peter offered to play music for her. Peter sat and sang with her for a while.
Once he left, the patient was calm enough to take a nap and woke up more relaxed. After seeing this patient, Peter offered to see my second patient who was confused and upset about the discharge plan. Peter went in this patient’s room on two different occasions to calm her down and pass time while her discharge plan was figured out. Peter was so caring and compassionate with these patients, and I believe he absolutely improved both of these patients’ experiences at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s by helping to provide excellent care. Peter truly made a positive difference in both of these patients’ days!”
