Mary Jean Blythe of Lincoln has been named the November Employee of the Month at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln. Blythe has worked in the obstetrics department at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital for 21 years.
In her role as an obstetrics nurse, Blythe enjoys caring for women in labor which includes monitoring the mother’s contractions and helping her through them, monitoring the baby’s heart rate and assisting with delivery. She also takes care of the moms who may require monitoring during pregnancy and taking care of both the mom and the baby after delivery.
Blythe is proud to be part of the teamwork at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
“I’m very proud of my co-workers because they work so well as a team. From dietary, housekeeping, sterile processing to all the nursing staff. Teamwork makes patient care go smoothly. It makes ALMH a great place to work and a great place to be a patient!” said Blythe.
Her calm and pleasant demeanor was only one reason Blythe was nominated for the honor. The nomination also highlighted Jean as a wonderful nurse who is extremely helpful to patients in many ways including her ability to successfully help new mothers breastfeed.
