Nathan Littauer Hospital

Littauer’s A.C.E. Award presented to some valued employees


GLOVERSVILLE, NEW YORK (May 1, 2018) – “People helping people,” that’s what Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home is all about.

One of Littauer’s highest honors to receive is the A.C.E. Award. A.C.E. is an acronym meaning Awards Celebrating Employees. The award is given to any employee who does something extraordinary outside the scope of their role within the organization.

On April 16, three Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home employees were surprised with the A.C. E. Award before their peers. The Rev. Bonnie Orth, Pamela Bell and Alexis Hayes, RN, each received the award for their extraordinary work done outside the scope of their role within the organization. Paying their own way, and carrying in all supplies – Orth, Bell and Hayes joined 31 others and traveled to Pachaj, Guatemala in February for nine days to provide care to Guatemalan residents.

On Friday, April 6, Melissa A. Bown, ANP, employee health and infection prevention manager was driving to work when she witnessed a severe car accident. She quickly pulled over, called 9-1-1, and proceeded to check on the two drivers.

Smoke was filling the one vehicle from the dashboard. Bown assured the driver help was on the way and went on to open the vehicle doors allowing for ventilation. She then went to check on the other driver. Unable to open the vehicle doors due to the impact of the accident, Bown could only assure this driver to remain calm and help was on the way.

Bown feels she did nothing out of the ordinary that anyone would have done. Yet, her calm, assurance and professionalism were to be celebrated when she was then nominated for an A.C.E. Award. She received her award on April 19 before a gathering of her peers.

Littauer is very proud of these special employees. Their compassion and humanitarian efforts have gone far beyond what they bring to Littauer every day. For these reasons, they are each recognized.

Littauer encourages patients to “Ask Me 3”

GLOVERSVILLE – There are times when your health information may seem unclear. Nathan Littauer Hospital is now a participant in The Ask Me 3® program run by the National Patient Safety Foundation. Littauer is excited to work with Ask Me 3, and open the lines of communication with its patients.

Ask Me 3® is an educational program that encourages patients and families to ask three specific questions of their providers. By asking these three questions during a health care visit, either for yourself or for a loved one, patients and health care providers should have a better understand their health conditions and what they need to do to stay healthy.

The three questions are:

  1. What is my main problem?
  2. What do I need to do?
  3. Why is it important for me to do this?

“I’m really happy to bring this program to our patients and community,” said Littauer Emergency Care Center Manager, Jennifer Elmendorf BSN, RN CLNC. “I truly expect it to help our patients better understand their health conditions and do what they need to do to stay healthy.”

Designed by health literacy experts, Ask Me 3 is intended to help patients become more active members of their health care team, and provide a critical platform to improve communications between patients, families, and health care professionals.
