Boone Memorial Hospital would like to recognize the December 2011 Employee of the Month – Glenna Haugen. Glenna currently resides in Verdunville (Logan County) and has been a dedicated, hard-working employee at BMH for nearly 7 years. Glenna is an Emergency Room Charge Nurse and takes on many roles.
“In the ER we wear many hats as I like to say. Of course my most important duty is to give the best care I possibly can to my patients. We are also the transporter, receptionist, respiratory therapist, etc,” explains Glenna.
Glenna attended Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College where she obtained an Associate’s Degree in Nursing. She is ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) and TNCC (Trauma Nurses Core Course) Certified.
She is very skilled and truly takes pride in her job.
“My favorite thing about being a Nurse is taking care of my patients. I love the small atmosphere at BMH. We are like family and it is a very caring place,” said Glenna.
Glenna is very proud of her family. She has been married to Stuard for 18 ½ years. He is one of the House Supervisors at BMH.
“When we got married he was an EMT and I was a CNA. We took turns going to school. I became a LPN then he completed his Paramedic Training. I graduated from SWVCTC Nursing Program in 2003 and he followed graduating in 2005,” explains Glenna.
She and Stuard have 7 children and 1 grandchild; Amber, 21 who is a student at SWVCTC; Britney, 20 who is a stay at home mom to their only grandchild, Jacob; Courtney, 17 – a senior at Logan High School, Michael, 17 and Mitchell, 16 who also attend Logan High School; Madison, 5 who is in Kindergarten and Abigail, 2 who Glenna tells us keeps everyone busy!
“I don’t really have any hobbies of my own. My kids’ hobbies are my hobbies and they keep me busy."
Glenna is very proud of her faith. She has been a Christian since November 7, 1995 and has been a very active youth leader. She and Stuard were also foster parents and adopted 3 children.
In celebration of Glenna’s award, she was honored with a designated parking space and free lunch for the entire month of December and a recognition plaque that is displayed in the front lobby at BMH.
“I was honored and very happy about the parking space,” she concludes.
Congratulations Glenna! We are proud of you!
