March's PEARLS award was extra special. Not just one, but two awards were bestowed upon SueKay Ulrich-Ford, RN and Justin Reed, RN. SueKay was unanimously chosen from 7 other nominees for her commitment and dedication to the Somerset community on March 27, 2015. After a long day at work, SueKay came upon the scene of a horrific crash on Rt. 413. Knowing not what dangers were ahead, she quickly went into action delivering exceptional nursing care to one of the victims. Despite the cold and wet weather, she sacrificed self to remain with the young victim attempting to preserve her life until additional EMT personnel arrived. Though this young lady succumbed to her injuries, she remained in the loving and compassionate arms of SueKay so she would not be alone. Her nominator personally witnessed SueKay's heroic and selfless act and states "she epitomizes who and what one stands for as a nurse and as an employee of McCready. Sue Kay is a role model for all of us at McCready."

The committee also felt that another associate was deserving of a PEARLS award for his excellence and legionary service. Justin Reed, RN was the first to arrive on the crash scene on March 27. He immediately went into action assessing the situation and providing medical care to another victim of this horrific crash. Afterward, he displayed a true PEARL like spirit, dismissing his own actions and highlighting the actions of another with a PEARLS nomination. Though he has only been at McCready a few months, he has already established himself as a PEARL and a leader not just to the McCready family but to the Somerset community as well.

We also congratulate our other valuable nominees: Ethel Abbott, Marcia Johnson, Allison Marsh, Jeff McCready, Patti Parkinson, Ken Sterling, and Doug Ward.

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.
