Congratulations to Jessica Mann, one of the patient care associates serving 10 PCU, for being nominated and selected as one of this quarter's BUCK-I Award winners!

The Bringing the Utmost Care and Kindness to Individual patients (BUCK-I) Award recognizes Health System ancillary nursing staff (non-RNs who report to a nurse manager) for extraordinary acts of compassionate care they demonstrate in their work with patients. Winners of this award are known for exemplifying the mission, vision and values of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and truly making a connection with the patient and family through trust and emotional support, often going above and beyond the call of duty.

"Since the opening of 10 PCU in August 2018, Jessica has been a cornerstone of the unit. She brought with her years of experience that proved invaluable as we navigated our first months. She is an original member of our ULC, a preceptor, a unit clerk (as needed), and an example of someone who finds joy in her work no matter what the situation...Jessica always strives to make the lives of her patients a little brighter..." -Lisa Vance, BSN, RN, 10 PCU
