Thankful for Our Sleep Techs
It's official, Sleep Tech Appreciation Week 2013 is here! Yay!
I really do enjoy this particular time of the year. I appreciate the opportunity to take some time out to recognize my co-workers for the wonderful job they do. I think it's important that they know they are valued -- not just this week, but all year long. If your lab has survived the changes in healthcare and made it through the competitive bidding war then you are doing well. If you have a handful of dedicated techs, you are doing even better.
I am proud to say that my lab has some of the best sleep techs you will find anywhere. They are not only competent but caring. They take pride in their profession and are invested in learning and training to become better at what they do. They are engaging and warm and our clients frequently call back to comment on how well they were treated by this one or the other. I am proud of them. They care about each other and the lab. They come in early and stay late when needed. Are they perfect? No, of course not. But I would not trade them for any others.
This week to celebrate them, we tried to sprinkle each day with a few surprises. Last night we had an excellent Chinese buffet brought in. Tonight we are having a potluck dinner in the lab with the presentation of a few small gifts. The week culminates with our second annual sleep seminar, during which they are doing a case presentation. They are great and we would not be the same without them. Thank you for all you do, Beverly, Brittany, Chandra, Joanna, Jordan, Lisa, Sana, Tiffany and Warren. You are the best!
