She is always trying to make improvements and has motivated us to make more “green” choices on the unit.
Recently one of our PCA’s, Monica Kruinink, has spearheaded an effort in PICU to become a green, sustainable unit. She provided us with ceramic dishware and silverware for the staffs use. She created a list and solicited donations from staff for kitchen items such as cutting boards, knives, etc. She is always trying to make improvements and has motivated us to decrease the amount of paper and Styrofoam we use as a unit. We would love to see other units embrace this change and follow her example. We greatly appreciate how much she cares about the patients, the unit and our environment.
