Congratulations to Kanisha “Nish” Robinson, our 2021 Q3 Hummingbird winner!

Kanisha is a Psychiatric Technician with our Cypress Unit where she works with Child and Adolescent patients. Says Kailey Jenson, RN, who nominated her:

“Anytime a patient is feeling upset on the unit, Nish is always the first … to have a 1:1 conversation with that patient. She is relatable and genuinely listens to a patient’s concerns.”

“All the patients love Nish!”

The Hummingbird Award is a new honor created by the PEW and Psych Tech Council in 2020. It is important to recognize Psych and Nurse Techs for the demonstrated empathetic, compassionate and competent care they give to patients/residents and all whom we serve. They bring professionalism and a positive attitude to their work and demonstrate Pine Rest’s guiding behaviors of integrity, excellence, stewardship, diversity and empowerment in their work.
