“I would like to commend your nursing staff on the 3rd floor for their actions to care for my gravely ill father, Mr. Malan, onAugust 19, 2018. He had been discharged from Danville OSF NOT in stable condition. We were told we could transport him ourselves, across the street to your facility, using their wheelchair. After getting him into the wheelchair with difficulty by four OSF staff, we were able to transport him to you WITH MUCH DIFFICULTY.  He was unable to sit in the wheelchair. his Parkinson's Disease flared up and he could not sit or bend. Two of your staff were waiting at the door to help us in. MylenaCotton, RN was walking into your facility for her work shift. The staff got him into bed immediately. They checked his blood sugar within 1 minute of arrival. It was 58. Mylena began assessing him immediately.  She worked on him all night. She exemplified the knowledge and concern for dad's well-being far beyond a typical Registered Nurse.

July Customer Service Superstar | Alicia Catterson

Congratulations to Alicia Catterson, Activity Aide at Paris Healthcare!  You are the IMG July Customer Service Superstar!

On the morning of July 4th, Alicia Catterson clocked in for her shift as activity aide at Paris Healthcare Center.  She walked through the halls giving a good morning and a big smile to all that she met on her way to the activities room ... especially the Residents, whom she has grown to love in her short time at PHC.

Alicia started in housekeeping and did a great job carefully cleaning each resident's room just like it was her own home. She took great care in every detail and was pleased when she was finished.  She always did her best work and was thoughtful in ensuring reach Resident felt good about their stay at PHC.

It didn't take Alicia long to know that her true passion was working directly with the Residents and applied for the activity aide position. She was hired and has made a huge difference each and every day she spends time with the Residents.
