Herrity selected employee of the month Ashley Herrity, RN, hospital, was selected as the Sanford Vermillion Medical Center (SVMC) April 2009 PRIDE Employee of the Month. Herrity has been employed at Sanford Vermillion since June 2000. Ashley has shown her devotion and education to SVMC in many ways. She stepped forward to help develop a team leader role at the hospital. Within this role she helps maintain and promote quality care and standards that a critical access hospital must meet. She has become a very good resource to other staff. In addition to her team leader role, she has taken the initiative to expand her skills as a chemotherapy nurse. She is working hard to develop a relationship with the new hematologist-oncologist that is coming to Vermillion. She is developing a great rapport with him and is dedicated to provide her chemotherapy patients with personal care. I appreciate Ashley's candid straight forwardness when it comes to interactions with patients, staff and providers. These are some of the comments shared in nominations for Herrity. "Ashley is a team player and is able to see the whole picture in patient care; from admit to discharge. She is dedicated to Sanford Vermillion," comments Mylynn Hanson, chief nursing officer, Sanford Hospital Vermillion. Ashley (Schultz) Herrity is a native of Elk Point.
