Lynn Demers, RN
Lynn Demers joined May Institute’s West Springfield nursing team in 1999. Through the years, she has demonstrated a remarkable dedication to the wellbeing of the individuals we serve. She is very involved in their lives, and regularly attends meetings outside of working hours to ensure that accurate information is being provided. Oftentimes, she joins in on special events such as birthday celebrations.
Lynn is also dedicated to assisting and training staff members. She is always eager to help and offer ideas about how to improve our nursing department, its policies and programs.
She has been involved in many new initiatives such as creating a tool for output monitoring, an effort that has made an impact on reducing the number of complications caused by bowel obstructions. In addition, she has assisted with testing the first iterations of the medication acuity scale for the organization. Lynn has also been an active participant in our subcommittee for medication occurrence reporting.
Whether meeting the needs of the individuals we serve, or working collaboratively with her colleagues, Lynn consistently goes “above and beyond,” doing her very best on a daily basis. “Bound by paperwork, short on hands, sleep, and energy…nurses are rarely short on caring.”* That describes Lynn, and we salute her during Nurses’ Week 2015.
