Heather Nelson - Employee of the Quarter

Nelson selected as Hattiesburg Clinic’s Employee of the Quarter

Heather Nelson, LPN, has been selected as Hattiesburg Clinic’s Employee of the Second Quarter.

Nelson, a nurse at Hattiesburg Clinic Weight Management, was awarded the honor from a pool of over 100 candidates across various departments. Nelson has been with the clinic since June 2016.

One afternoon at Weight Management, a concerning call came in from a patient. Nelson displayed tremendous compassion and care as she helped the patient through a crisis.

Delana Pearce, the manager at Weight Management, recalled the event as one of the “sweetest, most kind-hearted things” she has ever witnessed from a nurse.

“Heather kept [the patient] positive and calm,” Pearce said. “She encouraged the patient by talking as if she was a close friend of hers. Heather is always the happiest person and is such a ray of sunshine. She is the perfect example of how a nurse should provide excellent patient care.”

The Employee of the Quarter is selected from nominations by an employee’s peers, managers, and patients and then chosen by a committee of people from all clinic levels.

As Employee of the Quarter, Nelson receives a $100 bonus, a reserved parking spot for one quarter, one vacation day, and an invitation to the clinic’s Employee Awards Banquet next year.
