Employee of the Month
John Morgan, Nursing Assistant II for the Missouri Veterans Home – St. James, was selected as the March 2014 Missouri Veterans Commission Employee of the Month.
John was nominated by his peers and selected because of the extra mile he goes to ensure that the residents receive the best care possible.
On December 24, 2013, John was assigned to pass out medications on the Special Care Unit. While passing out medications he noticed a resident was having difficulty breathing. John immediately checked on the resident, determined that he was choking, and began performing the Heimlich. Because of his quick response, the resident's life was saved.
In addition to his regular duties, John frequently assists with resident transport and is willing to change his hours of work to accommodate a resident or facility need. John is a true asset to the residents and St. James Veterans Home.
John will be honored March 18, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. at the Missouri Veterans Home – St. James in St. James, Missouri.
