KNOXVILLE – Congratulations to Shelby Feagins, Med/Surg, for being selected the KHC Hero of the Month at Knoxville Hospital & Clinics.
The Med/Surg nursing staff has been discussing ways to prevent cases of Hospital Acquired Pneumonia (HAP). Shelby took it upon herself to research the topic and found that the new number one way to prevent HAP is proper oral care, which is especially beneficial for immobile patients. Based on Shelby’s recommendations, the team purchased additional oral care kits and will be monitoring the data closely. Shelby’s demonstration of our core values of service and innovation is why she was chosen as November’s Hero of the Month.
Shelby will be in the running for KHC Hero of the Year in May 2021.
The other employees nominated this month will automatically be entered for consideration for the next three months. After each quarter, we will share the employees who were nominated during that timeframe.
