Beth Corrigan, RN

Emergency Department

Star Performer, Beth Corrigan"When you are sick, wouldn't you want the best nurse to care for you? Beth would be our choice!" This is what co-workers say about Beth Corrigan, RN, our September Star Performer of the Month.

Beth began her career at LGH 10 years ago as an Emergency Department (ED) Technician, completed her paramedic training, and returned to the ED full-time last summer as a nurse graduate. The ED is a chaotic and rapidly-changing environment, and staff must always be aware of the importance of early intervention, assessment of a patient's care needs, and ready to respond to potential emergency situations. Beth can always be counted on to be the first in line to help, whether inside the department, or running to aid with a Code 10 or 99.

"One of the greatest strengths of a nurse is the ability to assess - to look at a situation, see what needs to be done, and do it," says Kathleen Albert, RN, Nurse Educator. "There are some folks who quietly go about their jobs, and efficiently and effectively, and go over and above without fanfare. Beth is one of those people. She is known to be a strong advocate for her patients, always taking their best interests to heart."

"Beth is an exceptional nurse and all around great team player. The ED physicians always know they can count on her to deliver
outstanding care to our patients," says Dr. Nathan MacDonald, Chief of Emergency Medicine.

Beth lives in live in Londonderry, NH, and in her spare time she enjoys mountain biking, reading non-fiction, visiting her two
nieces Julia and Lacie, and eating ice cream.

Congratulations, Beth. You're a Star!
