Christine Morrell, RN

Christine Morrell

Christine actually joined Oak Hill Hospital in 1993 during the summer months as a candy striper. From that point on she knew that she wanted to be in the medical field and joined Oak Hill Hospital’s medical/surgical unit as a CNA on the fourth floor while finishing nursing school. In June she passed the NCLEX and came to the overnight shift as an RN on the fourth floor where she strives to make sure that the needs of her patients are met – “especially pain, so they can have a good night’s sleep.” She lives in Spring Hill and has three daughters, Jasmine, 15, Julietta, eight, and Maddison, seven. Christine’s nomination praised her as a wonderful nurse. The patient who complimented her said that she would never know that she was a new nurse and complimented her for going above and beyond to make her stay more than comfortable. “It’s just my opinion, but you have an awesome RN. When she’s completed with training she will do nothing but raise the standards of your hospital!” For her part, Christine says that she enjoys working the overnight shift because it gives her a chance to really know her patients and help them with any concerns they have. “I love my fellow coworkers on the fourth floor. They make my shifts fun and educational. I am always learning from them. We are truly one big family.”

Brandi goes above and beyond to showcase the areas for which she is responsible and demonstrates a true caring for the patients, associates, her job, and especially Oak Hill Hospital. For her part, Brandi says that she “loves meeting new people and helping them.”
