It is with great pride that we announce that Crystal Gainer, CNA at Signature HealthCARE of North Florida, is the Second Place winner of Florida Health Care Association’s 2017 CNA Essay Contest!
Crystal’s passion for “her” residents comes as no surprise as she entered the contest to share her inspiration of what it means to her to really listen and be a compassionate care giver.
The essays were designated to be 300-500 words with a theme of “CNAs: Champions for Person-Centered Care” wherein entrants chose one of six key words (Dignity, Respect, Compassion, Listening, Communication or Standards of Care) to describe what it means in their daily practice of caring for residents in their center.
Crystal will receive a certificate, a $300 check from FHCA to use how she wishes and her essay has been posted on the FHCA website and Facebook/Twitter as part of National Nursing Assistants Week.
We are truly blessed that Crystal is part of the Signature HealthCARE family and demonstrates such compassion and dedication of what it means to be a CNA! Thank you Crystal and all CNA’s for all that you do…..
