Registered Nurse, St. Charles Hospital, Oregon, OH
"Nursing is a profession for those who find love in helping others," begins Lisa Hawthorne-Price. A Registered Nurse and Clinical Staff Professional at St. Charles Hospital, Lisa has definitely chosen the correct profession.
Part of her daily routine is assisting with activities of daily living (ADL); monitoring vital signs, lab values, and dietary intake/output; collaborating with physicians; educating patients on the importance of self-care management in the areas of nutrition, diet and exercise; comforting patients who are experiencing role strain, depression, aggression, repressed behaviors, and fear of unknown outcomes; and keeping the health care area safe and clean, free from trip hazards, and other environmental care.
Motivated by the patients she takes care of, Lisa prides herself on providing the best physical, social, emotional and environmental patient care as possible. "As individuals, we sometimes can become complacent in our ability to think and move without much effort. However, when you get to know your patients and see the struggles they had to overcome; especially after a cerebrovascular or other debilitating accident, you learn that your expertise and compassion as a medical professional can help improve their outcome."
