(EMPORIA, VA) – David Mulkey has been named the Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center (SVRMC) Employee of the Month for May 2015.  Mr. Mulkey, who has been employed at SVRMC since March 2012, is a registered nurse (RN) on the Behavioral Health Unit.    

Employees are nominated for demonstrating excellence in one of ten Standards of Behavior highlighted during that month.  The highlighted Standard of the Month for May was Patient Privacy.  Mr. Mulkey was nominated by a co-worker from his department who wrote, “David respects the privacy of all of his patients and all of those in his unit.  David makes sure that he knocks when entering every patient room, introduces himself, and maintains confidentiality and privacy in all interactions that he has with each patient. Confidentially and privacy is of the utmost importance on the Behavioral Health Unit, and David sets great example of respecting both in all of his work tasks.   David ensures that all patient information is kept private, and that only those that have a need to know, are allowed access to patient information.  David ensures that all patient family members that request information on our patients have permission to receive that information before he gives it out.  David is an asset to SVRMC and advocate for patient privacy, respect, and confidentiality.”

As SVRMC’s May Employee of the Month, Mr. Mulkey received a certificate, balloons, cookies to share with his co-workers on the Behavioral Health Unit, a cash prize and a chance to be selected as SVRMC’s 2015 Employee of the Year.
