Sarith Khiev

CNA, MP3

Sarith Khiev"A positive co-worker who rolls up her sleeves and pitches in no matter how busy the floor is!" This is just one of the many wonderful things co-workers had to say about Sarith Khiev, Lowell General Hospital's February Star Performer of the Month.

Sarith began her career at Lowell General in 2010, as a Certified Nursing Assistant on the MP3 staff. Her main duties include: taking blood pressures, handling Code 10 transfers, assisting the nursing staff, and tending to patients' needs. She is known for treating each person, staff, patient, and family with dignity and respect.

"Sarith is committed to cultural service," says Linda Mclellan, RN, Charge Nurse, MP3. "As a CNA that speaks Khmer, she is very reassuring to Cambodian patients and families. She will also wait until every patient is tucked in, and the nurses are all set, to eat her dinner. She has a terrific work ethic and works with pride... her patients and their rooms shine after she is done with them."

Sarith shows this same commitment to her co-workers. She is known to stay overnight and come in on her days off if a situation arises to meet the needs of the floor. Co-workers say she is an exceptional young lady and an inspiration each and every day. For example, she will often bake Cambodian dishes and desserts for the staff on the MP3 floor.

Sarith is from Lowell, MA. She enjoys taking her son and daughter to Chuck E Cheese's, the park, and spending quality time with her family. She is currently attending Middlesex Community College to pursue her RN degree.

Congratulations, Sarith. You're a Star!
