Mary Beth Metzger Named High Performer for April

Congratulations to our High Performer for the month of April, Mary Beth Metzger. Mary Beth has been employed at RCH for 29 years and works in our Surgery Department.

“Mary Beth does an outstanding job in the Same Day Surgical Department. She is dedicated to the organization and goes above and beyond delivering patient care. She has been employed at RCH for 29 years and does an amazing job in the peri-operative setting.  She gets up at the crack of dawn, or before, to arrive at RCH before the first patient arrives at 6:00 a.m.  She gets the unit lit up, equipment and supplies out and ready for the other staff as they arrive each morning. She does this every day all day and rarely calls off for any reason at all.  She has had some pretty tough challenges this past year and is so dedicated to this organization and her patients that she continued to work through a tough time that most people could not or would not have done but she arranged her personal schedule around her work schedule.  She admits, and discharges so flawlessly that her patients feel and have commented on how she makes them feel at ease, so much so, that returning patients have requested her by name. Between delivering patient care, she works on reports for statistics, infection control and specimen requisition. She also assists with preoperative patient interviews and education for the same day surgery patients. With her years of experience, she is a resource and preceptor to existing and/or new staff. She is a vital part of this team and an asset to the organization.”
