Medical Students Learn the Importance of Providing Outstanding Health Care

Feb 17, 2014

Peggy Jackson, the former patient access /emergency room supervisor of - Saint Francis Hospital in Bartlett, Tennessee, recently spoke to Aledria Ragland’s medical class.  Aledria is the director of health care education at the Bartlett Campus.

Ms. Jackson discussed professionalism in the workplace. She also talked to the class about insurance verification and benefit plans as well as the importance of providing outstanding and quality health care to patients.

Ms. Jackson encouraged students to work hard and to always treat patients with respect.  She also stressed the importance of arriving at work on time.  She encouraged the students to set a good example by working hard which will hopefully result in the students becoming supervisors after they obtain some work experience.

Student and vice president of the student activities council, DeSean Walton said, “Ms. Jackson told us some valuable things about how to act and carry ourselves in a professional manner.”

From (l) to (r): Student DeSean Walton, student Barbra Fisher, Peggy Jackson, the former patient access/emergency room supervisor of Saint Francis Hospital in Bartlett, student Sarah Braska, and student Angela Easley.
