July 2013 Employee of the Month
The willingness of Krista Jones to go above and beyond in her daily work in the Cardiopulmonary Department helped lead to her selection as the July Employee of the Month.
Krista, lead respiratory therapist, has been with UVMC since June 1994. Among her tasks are providing breathing treatments, doing EKGs, assisting with intubations/extubations, maintaining patient ventilators, attending C-sections and regular deliveries when needed, serving as EPIC supervisor, training new employees and serving as an ACLS instructor.
“Krista is always providing excellent care to her patients. Krista is a great role model because she does perform all respiratory duties and more,” a coworker wrote. “Krista is a team player and is always willing to help others.”
Krista said she likes the challenge each day brings because no two are ever the same. “I get to travel throughout the entire hospital from ER to ICU to OB. I never know where the day may bring me. I enjoy my respiratory coworkers and working as a team. I wish the entire department could be the employees of the month with me,” she said. “I work with the best group of coworkers anyone can ask for.”
Krista has been married for 18 years and has three children, Kyle, Ashley and Troy. When not at work she enjoys watching their sporting events, shopping with friends and going to lunch with friends to catch up.
