The latest Commitment Award winners at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) believe in teaching and supporting others. And they both do a great job! Congratulations to Emergency physician Dr. Adam Jones-Delcorde and Pharmacist Mohamed Eldesouki.
When Dr. Jones-Delcorde is not caring for patients in the ED, he can usually be found sharing his knowledge with fellow team members. Dr. Jones-Delcorde is trained in Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) and regularly uses and demonstrates this technology in the ED. He was also Chief Medical Information Officer during the planning and launch of WDMH’s new clinical information system, developing a series of videos to help train doctors and staff.
His nominator noted: “Dr. Jones-Delcorde has shown excellence and his one team approach by collaborating with staff, physicians and our Ottawa Hospital partners to make sure everyone was well informed and that the EPIC transition went as smoothly as possible. I am so glad he is on the WDMH team! Thank you for everything you do!”
Pharmacist Mohamed Eldesouki is a key part of WDMH’s chemotherapy team, providing patients with the medications they need and working closely with the nursing staff as one team. He is passionate about getting WDMH patients the medications they need and works diligently to acquire funding for new drugs.
“Mohamed is always available to sit with patients and teach and consult them on new medications,” explain his nominators. “He also takes the time to teach staff about all the intricacies of drug funding and the work that goes into getting medications to our patients. The excellent work he does is evident by the patients’ (masked) smiles that greet him when he walks through our doors.”
The WDMH Commitment Award shines a light on individuals or teams that demonstrate the values that result in compassionate excellence.
Congratulations to all the nominees!
