Employee of the Month
Lisa Rodenbaugh, Nursing Scheduler for the Missouri Veterans Home - Mexico, was selected as the June 2013 Missouri Veterans Commission Employee of the Month.
Lisa was nominated for her excellent work at the Missouri Veterans Home and for the way she exceeded expectations by working with a great deal of autonomy. This was displayed by her attendance record, her ability to work as a team player and the work she put into maintaining the nursing schedule.
Lisa demonstrated these characteristics by revolutionizing the Nursing Scheduler Position, by maximizing staffing ratios while reducing liability and by working hard to keep positions filled with qualified staff. Because of her efforts, the overtime paid out has dropped in the last 4 weeks and the employee turnover rate at MVH-Mexico has significantly dropped.
In addition to her regular duties, Lisa helped in assisting with an action plan for the mass treatment of scabies. Her willingness to jump in feet first on this subject matter showed her commitment to the residents and her co-workers at the Mexico Veterans Home. It reflects well on the Commission as a whole and on Lisa in particular.
Lisa will be honored on June 12, 2013 at 2 p.m. at a ceremony held at the Missouri Veterans Home – Mexico in Mexico, Missouri.
The Missouri Veterans Commission has established the Employee of the Month Program to recognize employees within the Missouri Veterans Commission for outstanding service.
