Loretta Bruckler, LPN
GSC & Dacier Employee of the Month
December 2017

    During her nine years of service at Good Samaritan Center, Loretta has usually worked the night shift. She says, “I am not a morning person.” What a blessing it is to residents and fellow staff to know there is an “evening and night person” who can stay alert and do what needs to be done well and with a good attitude!
    One of the things she enjoys most about her job is the opportunity to interact with the residents. Learning their likes and preferences enables her to perform the technical parts of nursing — such as orders, doses, and schedules — while keeping in mind what the resident enjoys or prefers.
    Attention to the importance of person-centered care and dedication to an exemplary work ethic even when challenged with personal health concerns encouraged the person who nominated Loretta for this award to describe her as an example for fellow employees.close
