CJ Nelson, Environmental Services is the latest recipient of McCready’s PEARL recognition program. PEARLS stands for ‘Promoting Excellence And Recognizing Legendary Service’. Nelson was nominated for his kindness and patience with the nursing home residents. He is described as being an extra set of caring eyes and hands.

Six other associates were nominated for the award: Charlotte Cain, Donna Crockett, Natalie Evans, Brenda Griner, Teresa Horsey, and Kristen Welch.

The PEARLS program began this fall to recognize employees and volunteers. Any family member, patient, resident, or associate can complete a PEARLS card during their visit to share their compliments and suggestions and place them in the locked comment boxes located throughout the campus.

For more information on the PEARLS program contact Community Relations at 410-968-9225.
