For the past 12 years, Kim Campbell has left a lasting legacy with her peers and her patients. After joining the Milford Memorial Hospital Intensive Care Unit in October, 2000, Campbell quickly established herself as the ultimate patient advocate, a provider who truly listened to patients and patient families to ensure they receive the care they deserve. In addition to caring for the patients assigned to her, Campbell volunteered to assist other nurses in the ICU, PACU, Day Surgery and other departments. Campbell transitioned to the Peri-Anesthesia Care Unit in 2010.

“Kim always places the needs of patients above all else. She stays late regularly to assist with her colleagues’ needs, floating to other departments when asked (including) to the Peri-Anesthesia Care Unit at Kent General Hospital,” said Milford Memorial Hospital Day Surgery Nurse Manager Heidi Moore, MSN, RN, CNOR. “For Kim, it’s very much a labor of love.”

According to Moore, Campbell has also inspired her peers and takes a special pride in mentoring, teaching and helping new nurses. Campbell serves as a department preceptor and is known as a “great resource” to her colleagues. She encourages her peers to get involved with initiatives at Bayhealth and in the nursing profession. Campbell is credited with assisting PACU nurses in cross training for care in Day Surgery. She serves as co-chair of the Bayhealth Nursing Education Council, was instrumental in the Nursing Educational Needs Survey, and helped develop Technology Day for the nursing staff. Her contributions have helped lead to systemic changes which benefit patients in her department and throughout the hospital.

“Kim tries to make improvements for our department so that patients will receive better care. If she sees an issue that needs to be improved, she will work to find a way to improve it,” said Day Surgery Nurse Heidi Baustert, RN.

For Campbell, the greatest reward is knowing that she has made a difference for her patients and for her peers.

“The patient is always our first priority. Patients are treated like family (here). It doesn’t matter what situation may be occurring, our staff rallies to deliver exceptional care to our patients. One nurse inspires another, who inspires another. I have been inspired by so many,” said Campbell.
