Nurse Honored with Nightingale Award

Maury Sheeder, RN, received the hospital’s 2023 Nightingale Award at a special ceremony held May 10.

Sheeder joined White Rock’s labor and delivery unit a year ago. During that time, she’s actively worked to improve the unit. She’s known for her compassion for patients and co-workers alike. She seeks to help others so that the team succeeds. For example, Sheeder has helped onboard new team members by creating an orientation manual. She serves as chairperson for the unit-based council and set up a communications solution for the unit team as well.

The award is named for Florence Nightingale, known as the founder of modern nursing, who developed new nursing processes that helped improve patient care and outcomes.
