CCMH is proud of its employees! And, to show it, we've decided to showcase the employees who are recognized as Employees of the Month in the CCMH Health Connect Blog. These employees are nominated by patients, as well as CCMH leadership, physicians and staff.
On behalf of the leadership team, Campbell County Health would like to congratulate Wendy Blakeman, Campbell County Clinics—OB GYN Specialists, as the employee of the month for November 2013.
OB GYN Specialists has a high risk pregnancy patient whom has had experienced numerous miscarriages due to Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), an enzyme that is involved in amino acid metabolism in the body. The patients has been prescribed Neevo, a prenatal vitamin made especially for high risk pregnancy and for people who have a genetic inability to fully metabolize folic acid. Unfortunately, this vitamin is not covered by the patient's insurance nor could the patient afford it. Wendy knew that this patient needed this vitamin, so she went to the pharmacy and paid for it out of her pocket so this patient could avoid another potential pregnancy loss.
Wendy's compassionate care for this patient was above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you, Wendy for being an integral part of CCMH and the Campbell County community.
