MedStar St. Mary's Hospital Announces August SPIRIT Award Winners

LEONARDTOWN, Md. - Join us in celebrating Larrissa Briscoe and Fred Spalding, our August 2021 SPIRIT Award winners! These associates were nominated by their peers for demonstrating our SPIRIT values—Service, Patient First, Integrity, Respect, Innovation, and Teamwork—in their roles at MedStar St. Mary’s.

Larrissa, 3 Central ► “On a very busy night on 3 Central, a patient alerted nurse tech Larrissa that he was experiencing chest pain. The patient's nurse was with another individual in distress. Larrissa obtained an EKG and alerted the RN. The patient was having an active heart attack. Because of Larissa's actions, the patient was able to be transferred quickly by helicopter for cardiac intervention. She displayed strong Patient First, Teamwork, and Service values to ensure this patient received the timely care he needed.”

Fred, Facilities ► “As part of the Facilities team, Fred is often called to assist in emergent situations affecting patient care. In July, Fred rushed to help stop an overflowing drain caused by renovations in Rehab. He also came right over to fix an airflow issue affecting temperatures in treatment rooms. While patient-related fixes come first, Fred shows equal care and respect to coworkers. His SPIRIT values are what we wish everyone displayed in the world today: treating others how we’d like to be treated.”

Congratulations to you both—you make us
