Parnell received seven nominations for the Colleague of the Month award. Patients and colleagues appreciate Michelle’s compassionate attitude toward others even when she is busy managing numerous tasks. She works with other departments to make sure patients and families are cared for, and she makes kindness a priority.
“Whenever she works, there are little things she helps with to make our unit a little more special,” wrote her nominator from the DMH Cath Lab. “She can be overloaded with tasks and running in every direction and never loses her ability to be compassionate toward others around her.”
Parnell has worked at Decatur Memorial Hospital since 2017 and plans to complete her Certified Hospital
Environmental Services Tech certification and become a certified EVS trainer.
