Terri Graffeo is the April 2013 Employee of the Month. Terri works as a Physical Therapist at All Children's Outpatient Care, East lake and has been with All Children's since 2000. Terri was recognized for her Service Excellence by a family who wrote:
Our family would like to take the time to nominate our son's physical therapist, Terri Graffeo, for employee of the month. We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the love and care that Miss Terri continues to provide since becoming fast friends with him in January 2002. She is much more than his great therapist; she's an extended member of our family. Terri serves as an exemplary example of the type of medical professional that children as well as parents desperately need. We love that Terri does not mind stepping out of her comfort zone to facilitate our son's therapeutic progress. Subsequently, she has taken advanced courses to facilitate her ability to provide the best possible care for our child.
Terri's Department Director added:
Terri is one of our PTs in East Lake who has been nominated for employee of the month on numerous occasions. She is consistently enthusiastic, innovative and effective in her treatment skills. She embraces the entire family by her empathy for family needs and concerns as well as in her parent/family training to ensure that her patients receive ongoing treatment that reaches beyond the therapy room. She seeks out opportunities to continually improve and increase her treatment skills and knowledge base. She has completed her NDT (Neuro-Developmental Treatment) training, which was a significant commitment in both time and effort, and recently completed her kinesio taping certification, all in an effort to provide her patients with the most effective state-of-the-art therapeutic intervention.
Terri, thank you so much for your wonderful Service Excellence and all you do for our patients and families and congratulations for being selected for the All Children's Hospital Employee of the Month.
