Kim Hobson, Director of Nursing, at Nazareth Home in Louisville, Kentucky received the 2013 Statewide Director of Nursing Award at the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities (KAHCF)
Annual Quality Awards Banquet on November 14. KAHCF, the trade association that represents proprietary and nonproprietary long term care facilities throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, presented over 40 awards at the banquet at the Galt House in Louisville.
This award recognizes strong commitment to both the nursing home profession and providing quality care. Nazareth Home’s Administrator, Mary Haynes, said, “It is an honor to have Kim as part of our staff providing quality care every day. This recognition serves as a testament to her dedication to delivering that quality care to our residents.” Four district awards were presented to individuals in this category. ” Kim Hobson has demonstrated her desire to provide quality care every day, often without receiving the recognition she deserves,” said KAHCF Chairman of the Board, Ken Urlage. “This is one way to recognize that effort. And while it is an important honor, it does not compare to the thanks she receives every day from their residents and families.” Tracy Fluhr, Nazareth Home LPN and the 2012 KAHCF’s Statewide LPN of the Year, said, ” Kim is someone who inspires me every day to carry out our mission because the compassion and care she extends to our residents, she extends to every single person she encounters, It doesn’t go away when she walks out of our building, it is who she is.”
Kim has been the Director of Nursing at Nazareth Home since 2002, where her compassion, leadership, and dedication have led Nazareth Home to be alarm free and her innovative approach to person-centered care, nursing education, and community health education outreach have significantly improved the lives of many across our community. Kim is a steadfast advocate for the important role that nurses have in quality health care. Kim serves as the Vice President for the Kentucky Central District Association of Directors of Nursing (KADONA). Kim is a proud graduate of Spalding University here in Louisville.
