Amanda Moffitt, lab section supervisor, is the Employee of the Month for October 2016. Amanda has been with Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital for almost two years and was nominated by a fellow employee who wrote:
The Lab team was discussing the upcoming Meditech downtime. There was concern about the timing and staffing available. The process needed to be reviewed and education provided. Amanda helped organize staffing, and with her knowledge of the Lab, she helped review and improve the processes and train the staff. Then Amanda took it a step further. She decided to add herself to the schedule and came in early to help prepare the Lab for the downtime. She then remained for the entire length of the downtime and recovery phase. She was here more than 16 hours. She was everywhere during the downtime and recovery phase.
While entering results, reviewing reports and running instruments, she paused and gave her full attention to everyone who approached her with a question. Her presence during the downtime and recovery phase helped ensure our patients were well taken care of. From bench tech to lab manager, we all quickly realized Amanda was going to be able to see us through the downtime. Her leadership, confidence, presence, communication, expertise and understanding made a huge difference for our Lab. Being present for all phases of the downtime was extremely valuable. Our patients were well served by the Lab during the downtime. Amanda played a significant role in the success.
Amanda's director added:
Amanda exemplifies what a supervisor should be with her upbeat attitude, strong work ethic and tireless dedication to help and develop the staff she oversees. She works hard each and every day to ensure we provide the highest quality of care to our patients. The laboratory is truly fortunate to have Amanda as part of our team.
Thank you Amanda for your service excellence and congratulations on being named Employee of the Month.
