Hattiesburg (Miss.) Clinic recognized an ASC nurse who called off work to comfort a patient, according to Hub City Spokes.

Three quick highlights:

1. Janet Dawson, RN, was named Hattiesburg Clinic's employee of the quarter. She was selected from more than 150 candidates.

2. Ms. Dawson has been with Hattiesburg Clinic for nearly two decades and works in the urology department's ASC, having played an integral role there since it was established.

3. Recently, Ms. Dawson went the extra mile to put a patient at ease. She took a day off work to visit the patient, who was undergoing surgery at another facility. She arrived before the surgery to offer support and sat with the patient's family until his operation was over.
