Support staff helps set this ER apart

Valuable Support

It takes more than doctors and nurses to provide the best emergency care. For example, team member Peggy Carmena’s job is to clean and sterilize exam and treatment rooms between patients. Known affectionately by nurses as Pegasaurusand Peggles, she’s renowned for her thoroughness and speed.

Using an arsenal of spray bottles filled with a variety of specialized cleaning and disinfecting solutions, Peggy cleans and disinfects any surface patients and caregivers might come in contact with.

“She just does her job really well; it’s always done right,” says Patty Prentice, child life specialist. “We love her!”

Overhearing the compliment, Peggy replies, “And I love them!”
