Staff Spotlight: Meaza
Meaza is an RN at Kindred Hospital who was recently honored with a DAISY Award, an international program that celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. She was recognized for her outstanding nursing skills and for being a teacher who goes above and beyond for her patients and their families, and as someone who is much loved and respected by her colleagues.
“This is my passion,” Meaza said. “I have been an RN for 10 years now and I have always wanted to be a nurse since I was a kid. I love what I do because it’s so fulfilling. At the end of the day I can look back on what I’ve done and feel very satisfied that I have done my best and helped others.”
“I love working at Kindred because most of our patients are in need of critical care,” Meaza said. “As a nurse here I develop a deeper connection with my patients because I’m not just giving out medication – I’m providing total care, and that requires a higher level of dedication and commitment. I can’t imagine doing anything else!”
