Methodist Emergency Department Supervisors Honored With Patriot Award for Support of National Guard Member in 2021

Published: March 25, 2022

During the COVID-19 pandemic, staffing issues challenged Methodist Health System. Still, supervisors in the Emergency Department didn’t waiver in their support of Nebraska Air National Guard Capt. Amye Dusatko. 

Dusatko nominated her supervisors, Chelsea Craig and Jen Tran, for the Patriot Award. She wrote in her nomination that the managers provided flexibility for her drill periods, short-notice deployments and training commitments without question. 

Forensic Nurse Examiner Team Leader Jen Tran said accommodating Dusatkos’s schedule is something she wanted to do because the nurse doesn’t hesitate to offer the same support for her coworkers. 

“If someone needs help because they have something going on, she’s quick to fill in,” Tran said. “She’s an amazing employee; we’re so happy to have her.”
