Paige Pietruszewski is proof that hard work pays off. In 2013-2014, she completed her RN clinical rotation at RiverView. Today, she is the RN clinical coordinator/case manager at RiverView Home Care. She is also the Employee of the Month for June 2020.
A Northland Community and Technical College graduate with her LPN in 2013 and RN in 2014, Paige became an RN case manager at RiverView in 2015. At the end of 2017, she began her current role as a half-time RN case manager and half-time RN clinical coordinator.
“I love my job at RiverView and am so glad I’m here,’’ she shared. “I’ve enjoyed the different hats I’ve worn from providing direct in-home care to patients, auditing charts and working with clinical staff education/yearly validations and the onboarding of new staff with the orientation process.’’
Paige grew up in Cavalier, ND. She and her husband Kyle have been married for six-and-a-half years and are parents to Nixon, 19 months, and their first “baby’’ Piper, a seven-year-old Golden Retriever. The family lives in Stephen.
In her free time, Paige enjoys reading, traveling, decorating/renovating their home, spending time with family and friends, and “slow, leisurely walks around Target with a Starbucks in hand.’’
“I feel beyond lucky to have been named EOM. Every day I work with amazing individuals who are all deserving of recognition. In Home Care, we truly are a family, and I credit my team for making me better, as a person and as a nurse. We give it our all, and I couldn’t imagine better people to work with. The last few years have had their challenges from switching over to EPIC and then COVID happening, but we get through it together.’’
The following are some of the comments made in Page’s honor: Paige is very proficient at her job. She steps up to help in the office with all areas needed without any questions asked. She happily accepts extra responsibility. She is a fast learner. She is willing to answer questions with her “Open Door” policy. She has been involved with community events on RiverView’s behalf. She strives for excellence every day with audits, Referrals, Intakes, daily scheduling of nurses, and nursing duties. She has excellent phone etiquette. Great discharge follow-up with our clients. Gives praise where praise is due. She manages and organizes our nurses' training and CEU’s. She makes this easy for everyone to access and accomplish. She is friendly and kind to everyone no matter what their station in life. She has really helped me in this Epic transition since I’ve been more hands-on in Home Care. I have appreciated this so much. I hear other staff talk highly of her also. I don’t think she realizes how much she does for Home Care. She is very deserving of some recognition in this day and time when we are so consumed with the Pandemic. She is a very important Home Care team player for our great RiverView organization. We’re lucky to have her.
