Marisa Pruitt was recently named Employee of the Quarter at Covington County Hospital. Pruitt is a native of Taylorsville, Mississippi. She works as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at CCH’s Family Care of Seminary clinic.
“My favorite part of the job is knowing my patients on a personal level and being able to help them with their medical needs,” said Pruitt.
A few of Pruitt’s responsibilities in her role as an LPN for Family Care of Seminary include taking vital signs, refilling prescriptions, drawing labs, and ordering tests for the clinic’s provider. She also speaks with patients on the phone to answer any questions they may have and assists the clinic provider in performing minor surgical procedures.
“It’s important to be kind and understanding of your patients and families,” said Pruitt. “You never know what they are going through.”
Outside of her duties at Family Care of Seminary, Pruitt enjoys going on trips and spending time with her family.
Pruitt is currently furthering her education. She plans to complete her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and use this to continue providing the best care for her patients.
