Nominated by two nurses at ALMH, Cusey was named
March Employee of the Month. He has worked in dietary for two years.
"He always takes lids off trays and makes sure the patients have
everything they need before leaving the room," says nominator
Michelle Green, a nurse in ICU. "He immediately lets the nurse know
if any problems arise. It helps the staff out tremendously to take
these few extra minutes with patients. Plus he is always smiling,
polite and great to work with."
Cusey is a high school graduate who is currently enrolled at
Heartland Community College in Bloomington. He says ALMH is a nice
place to work, very friendly and is able to schedule his shifts
around his college classes.
Working in dietary is a good job for anyone 16 or older, he says.
"I do anything from scrubbing pans to making salads and a few
other foods," Cusey says. "It just depends on what job I am assigned
to for the day."
Cindy Jette, another ICU nurse, says Matt is always very helpful.
"Matt is willing to get extra things for patients, helps them
with their trays," she says. "He is a great example of making this a
great place to work."
ALMH employs more than 290 in a wide variety of job functions. A
different employee is honored each month for their commitment to
"creating great patient experiences, getting great
results and making ALMH a great place to work.”
