Celebrating Monday with a Heart of Caring nominee recognized for the respect and honesty she incorporates into her role as a nurse at Weatherwood. Meet Karla Bracken, a Weatherwood team member nominated by multiple peers for all she does to care for residents and co-workers alike.

“She is always on top of every need of the residents; she takes time no matter how busy she is to make sure their needs are met…She is one of the best nurses I have ever worked under.”

“She pushes herself to provide the best in care for our residents and to see that it gets done in compliance with all applicable standards.”

Karla’s heart of caring is particularly obvious in the way she acts as a role model for her team members team. Her countless positive relationships communicate high expectations for her team while simultaneously modeling the way she welcomes both residents and team members into the Weatherwood family.

“Karla does everything she can to be there for all her staff; she knows us all very well and can usually tell if someone is having an off day, and is always there to listen or give advice…No matter what, she is always willing to help her floor team members out without any hesitation and no matter how busy she is.”

“She encourages us all to keep smiling and stay positive; not only is she a wonderful nurse, but a wonderful person.”
