In an Oct. 6 ceremony, patient care technician Shakita Carter from the 21st Floor received Shirley Ryan AbilityLab's BEE Award for outstanding PCTs!
Shakita's nomination — submitted by a patient — included the following:
“Shakita is an awesome PCT. She is so polite, kind and patient. During my time at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, Shakita not only helped me physically until I could do most things for myself, but she also helped me mentally and spiritually. Her charismatic attitude was a delight to be around and it was pleasant to know that most mornings I had her as my PCT. Shirley Ryan AbilityLab did an awesome thing when they hired Shakita!”
At the ceremony, Shakita was presented with a certificate, a handmade sculpture and a BEE Award pin.
