St. Joseph’s Hospital honors Sara Deffet, R.N., with the Values Inspired Person Award

BUCKHANNON — WVU Medicine St. Joseph’s Hospital recently honored Sara Deffet, RN with the Values Inspired Person Award (VIP).  Sara serves as a Night House Supervisor for Nursing Services.

Her co-workers say she is always going the extra mile for our employees. She assists them in many ways, ensuring they have what they need to do their jobs safely, including necessary immunizations and follow-up after incidents. She always makes sure any incidents are recorded correctly and efficiently and communicates with Employee Health regularly regarding employee needs. Sara offers to vaccinate night shift and weekend employees so that they do not have to come into Employee Health when they are not scheduled to work.

Sara is always caring and compassionate. She will do anything for our employees and patients-an award well-deserved!
