Cheryl Johnson, RN, Charge Nurse Short Stay
I oversee daily operations, which means being involved in all patient care, post-operative, patient education, infusions, injections and lumbar steroid. I've always been interested in medicine. I was a high school volunteer and have been with St. Joseph for thirty-eight years, eighteen in labor and deliver and twenty in short stay. In that time I've learned that this job is about connecting with patients on a deeper level… compassion and building trust. As someone who comes from Eureka, the sense of community for me goes beyond walls of the hospital. So I try to make every patient interaction count. I love being part of a system that I have faith in and can recommend…. I believe you truly get back everything you give.
