Congratulations to Derek Vogelar, who is the Friend of Nursing honoree for March 2015.
A colleague who works in the Plant Operations Department, Vogelar was nominated by multiple departments across the hospital.
Because of his strong work ethic and professionalism, multiple departments believed he was solely assigned to them. Each of these departments would talk about how great their plant operations colleague was, not realizing they were talking about the same individual.
An excerpt from some of his nominations states: “I am amazed at his talent and his respectful demeanor to staff and patients. He is amazing and I am so glad to help recognize him for the things that he says, ‘are just part of my job.'”
“Derek truly makes a difference in the patients’ experiences and nursing workflow.”
