Gritman Registered Nurse and Clinical Coordinator Brings Dedication and Passion to Gritman’s Medical-Surgical and Critical Care Units
Right away, Holly considered the teams at Gritman Medical Center as her second family.
“I was drawn to Gritman when I was a nursing student,” she said. “The culture is what keeps me here. All the people are caring and dedicated to giving the best patient care.”
Holly works as a Registered Nurse and Clinical Coordinator for the Medical-Surgical and Critical Care Units (MSU/CCU), including Infusion Services. She is also cross-trained to work in Cardiac Rehab, Infusion Services, the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), the Family Birth Center and as a House Supervisor.
“My day is always different! As a coordinator my main purpose is to make sure staff and patients have everything they need – from equipment to emotional support,” she said. “I round with staff in the various units to make sure my help is not needed to make their time more efficient. Then I like to round with patients and introduce myself and make sure their stay is satisfactory. I work closely with my director on various projects throughout the hospital.”
Her role has given Holly the ability to assist many patients, providers, and staff throughout the hospital over the past 13 years. “I have always been someone who likes to help and take on projects so being a Clinical Coordinator allows me to help the most people and do as many projects as I want to take on.”
In addition to her job responsibilities, Holly is involved with our Nurse Resident and volunteer programs. She teaches first-year clinicals at Gritman for Lewis-Clark State College Nursing Program students and makes time to be a super-user for Information Systems-related training and upgrades. This spring Holly received the Adjunct Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence from Lewis-Clark State College. The award was presented to Holly during their Faculty and Staff Recognition event for her service during the 2022-23 academic year.
“Holly is known to advocate for excellent student clinical experiences and learning opportunities at Gritman, and encourages her staff to be welcoming to all students and show them the ‘Gritman Way,'” Jenna Chambers, an Assistant Professor in the Nursing Program at Lewis-Clark State College, wrote in her letter nominating Holly for the award.
Holly is also involved with the team that makes decisions about new products for the hospital, as well as our antimicrobial stewardship program.
“My co-workers are the most amazing people you could choose to work with. The team consists of such a wide variety of disciplines and personalities, yet we all work together wonderfully,” she said. “Each person brings something special to the team. I could not ask for better people!”
Outside of work, Holly enjoys spending time with her children and playing softball. Thank you, Holly for your dedication to Gritman, the nursing profession and your colleagues!
