Local nurse wins health care award

LISBON — Brenda Lawson of Continuing Healthcare of Lisbon recently won the Ohio Health Care Association Hero Award. She is an LPN and certified in wound care and has been employed at Continuing Healthcare for over four years.

Lawson has provided dedicated service not only to residents and families, but to her co-workers in the facility, as well. Her exceptional skills and knowledge of wounds has led to a very low rate of in-house pressure areas and a high rate of successful healing in those admitted with existing areas. Currently Lawson is covering wound care in a sister facility two days a week. She travels close to an hour each way and has not uttered a complaint, yet another example of her dedicated teamwork and willingness to go above and beyond.

Lawson approaches each day with compassion, commitment and enthusiasm making her a long-term care Hero.
