“Mrs. Jackson has worked at the NJVMH for over 50 years. Her dedication and commitment to the residents, family members, and employees has always been above and beyond exceptional. When a problem, complaint, or significant issue is brought to her attention, she finds immediate resolve. She assures the residents receive highest quality of care, and also that the family members feel comfortable when their loved ones are admitted to our facility.
It amazes me how she maintains her nursing skills as well as staying abreast of the latest medical information. Through her years at the facility, she has held many nursing titles, working as a CNA,LPN, RN, Nursing Supervisor, ADONS, to DONS. No matter what title she has held, she will stop and answer and call light &/or assist the residents as needed.
At one time when Administration was in need, she temporarily accepted a position for Food Service Department Head when both F.S. Department Head & Assistant Supervisor simultaneously retired and nobody was available to fill either key role. When Mrs. Jackson received the promotion for the ACEO/Clinical Services, she also maintained her title for DONS, two very busy and important jobs in our facility, while Administration looks to fill the DONS position. During my 29 &1/2 years working under Mrs. Jackson, she has been a mentor to me and I am proud to not only to work with her, but also to know her.”
