MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Cheryl Deaner, RN, was named City Hospital’s Quality Service Award winner for October.

Each month, the hospital’s Service Award Committee selects an employee to receive the Quality Service Award.

Deaner, a registered nurse in the outpatient chemotherapy and vascular therapy department, was nominated by one of her co-workers, who stated, “Cheryl helped with patient education on Hickman cath care. Not only did she put the patient at ease, but she noticed the patient’s arm was red and swollen. This resulted in treatment of DVT prior to the patient’s discharge. Thank you, Cheryl, for your help with a difficult case. There’s nothing like experienced eyes.”

Criteria for selection as a Quality Service Award recipient includes demonstrating a consistently high level of productivity and quality of work, along with a high degree of initiative in performing work responsibilities; displaying exceptional dependability; exhibiting effective relationships with others; displaying a commitment to service and serving the City Hospital community; and meeting the criteria for the West Virginia University Hospitals-East mission, vision and values.
