The 2018 Commitment to Excellence Nurses Award Winners
Inspire, innovate, and influence. These are the words that set the theme for this year’s National Nurses Week and they are all words we would use to describe the nurses of our One Call team. Our nurses play a vital role in the care our injured workers receive. To celebrate and recognize our nurses, we held nominations for the 2018 Commitment to Excellence Nursing Award to highlight our nurses who are inspirational, innovative and influential. Earlier this month, a survey was sent to all of our employees asking for nominations of nurses within the organization that exemplified the spirit of the National Nurses Week theme and we received an overwhelming number of nominations.
We would like to give a warm round of congratulations to our award recipients!

Summer Woods, Senior Clinical Care Nurse – Complex Care
'Summer has been a dedicated One Call employee for 14 years. She has completed her LPN to RN bridge while working full time and raising three very active boys. She is a consistent leadership presence within her team and her customers always ask for her by name. It has been an absolute privilege to work alongside Summer. Her serving heart has proven time after time why nurses are so vital to our organization. She is a true inspiration and a prime example of what an individual can do on their own. Summer epitomizes the drive and dedication of an individual set on success.'
Once again, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of the nurses at One Call and thank you for your continued dedication to our injured workers.
