Chris Allen started working in the Housekeeping department in 2007 and was assigned as the daily housekeeper for CTICU. After being in the department he realized he wanted more ability to care for the patients. Chris was hired as a Patient Care Assistant (PCA) in 2008.
It is obvious that Chris enjoys his work. Sheila Switzer nominated him for this recognition and states that "I have never seen Chris unhappy or unwilling to help anyone while on the unit. It's easily apparent that he loves his job by the way he interacts with his patients. He is respectful and curteous. He does everything he can to make that individual comfortable. Patients returning to the hospital as visitors almost always remember Chris on a first name basis because he leaves a positive impression on their hospital experience."
We thank you for being a integrual part of our Journey to Excellence.
