Fall Employee of the Quarter: Tana Hertz

Congratulations to Tana Hertz, our latest Employee of the Quarter! Tana will be celebrating 8 years as an RN at Alive on November 17! She is known for being the first to volunteer to lend a helping hand to a team member and for going above and beyond for patients and families. Tana is kind, compassionate, and caring to all who are connected to her.

Read about her patient care highlight on our blog!

Here’s what her colleagues say about her:

Quality of Work: She is consistent in her visits with her patients and they know when to expect her. She rarely has a patient call for medication refills or equipment and supply needs, and she tucks the patients in at each visit. She is a huge asset to the team, and I know that if I need help with anything, I can count on her.

Quality of Service: Tana goes beyond her 8-5 role at Alive. She represents Alive in the community by sharing our services with friends and acquaintances. Tana has been a support to the Magnolia team during the recent pandemic and staffing challenges. She never complains and welcomes everyone who comes to help Magnolia. She sets the example of having a good attitude and making patient care a priority. Tana is a resource for many and she is respected and well-loved by the staff at the facilities she visits.

Quality of Person: Tana is a quiet leader, she is calm in a crisis and always remains even-tempered. I have always said that if I had a family member that needed hospice, I would request Tana to take care of them.

Quality of Care: She is knowledgeable and teaches caregivers how to care for their loved one. She has had multiple interns and medical students shadow her as well. The quality of care she provides can be seen and heard from the many patients and families that have expressed their appreciation of her. I recently covered for her and so many families and patients told me how much Tana means to them and how she has helped them get through. Her quality care goes well beyond the patient.

Congratulations, Tana! We appreciate all you do.
