Connie Clowers, Nutritional Services
Nutritional Services Hostess Connie Clowers often goes “Above the call of duty” for the patients she serves. One special patient was having problems tolerating the food she received. Though most patients fill out their menu for the entire next day, Connie would ask her just what she wanted for the next meal or two, and made sure that her menu was marked so that the patient received only those items. She also ensured that the patient’s two daughters were well cared for, even bringing them teddy bears for additional comfort.
Another patient, a gentleman who needed periodic chemo treatments for his cancer, lost his appetite. Connie took the time to learn what foods he could eat. Whenever his meal card was left blank, she supplied his favorite: a plain hamburger with pickles. “She was so sincere in helping him,” said the patient’s wife in gratitude. Connie helps us to be aware of patients with special dietary needs on a regular basis and always does what she can to offer exceptional experiences for our guests.
