Massillon Nurse Aide Named December, 2018 Long-Term Care “Hero”

The state’s largest organization representing long-term care facilities has honored a Massillon, Ohio long-term care nurse aide as its December 2018 “Hero of Long-Term Care.”

Rebecca Greer, State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA) at Rose Lane Nursing and Rehabilitation, Massillon, has been selected by the Ohio Health Care Association (OHCA) as its Hero of Long-Term Care for December 2018. OHCA honors one long-term care employee each month for their service to long-term caregivers, residents and the community.

Greer will be featured on the OHCA website (www.ohca.org) during the month of December, and she will be recognized at the Association’s 2019 Annual Convention in Columbus, Ohio.

Emily Fox, Licensed Administrator at Rose Lane, says that Greer is passionate about serving the facility’s residents and the community.

"Becky is one of those workers that you fight hard to keep," said Fox. "She takes the time to get to know her residents, and provides them with the highest quality of care," she added. 

Greer has been part of the Rose Lane family for more than 8 years, and has been an STNA for 11 years. She also has hospice and home health experience.

"She has an excellent work ethic; communicates clearly to her co-workers, residents and their families, and is loved by all," said Ashli Hartzler, Life Enrichment Director at Rose Lane. "Becky is truly someone you can rely on, and always gives one hundred and ten percent." 

In addition to her regular duties, Greer is part of the Employee Empowerment Team at the facility and is involved in her church within the community. 

"Becky was nominated because of her phenomenal work ethic," said Hartzler. "She does everything she can to provide the best quality of life for residents, and truly cares for them as though they were her own family. Becky Greer is truly our Hero!"
