Jennifer Meints of Athens has been named the December 2019 Colleague of the Month. Meints has worked at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln as a respiratory therapist for eight years.
Meints appreciates the small town feel of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
“Each department works together as a team to take great care of our patients. I really enjoy my job and love working with such a caring group of people,” said Meints.
To become a respiratory therapist you must have a two year associate’s degree in allied health. Meints has worked in the respiratory therapy field for 29 years.
“I get to do a variety of jobs. Some days I facilitate stress tests, Holter monitors and EKG procedures. But other days I take care of patients in acute care and sometimes help with critical patients in the emergency room,” said Meints.
Meints was nominated by a colleague in the cardiopulmonary department.
“Jenny is always willing to help in any way possible. She is constantly going above and beyond,” said the nominator.
