Lakeland Care 2019 Q2 C.A.R.E. Award Winners

Lakeland Care continues to recognize outstanding providers through the C.A.R.E. (Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Enrichment) Award. The C.A.R.E. Award is a way for our care teams to recognize the outstanding service of our providers and individual caregivers. Every quarter an internal Lakeland Care committee chooses three providers/caregivers from all care team submissions and the committee utilizes the C.A.R.E. principles to honor the recognized providers.


Amy Plagenz and Cory Te Kulve receiving their C.A.R.E. Award from Lakeland CareHME Home Medical, Amy Plagenz and Cory Te Kulve
It was reported to LCI Network Relations and Quality staff that HME Home Medical assisted our member when he was not able to operate his ceiling lift. It was determined that there was an issue with the hand control. HME Home Medical communicated promptly and professionally with the care team and our member when assessing the ceiling lift defect. Assessment and repair were completed timely.  “HME Home Medical assisted with moving a members ramp to three locations within a month. HME Home Medical timely provided a quote to move the ramp for each location. When it was learned that the property where the ramp was located was being rented to new tenants, HME Home Medical moved the ramp and stored it until the care team could review the pending quotes. HME Home Medical remained in contact with the care team when weather delayed a scheduled install. HME Home Medical also communicated with the member to ensure he remained updated. HME displayed very courteous customer service and flexibility with this unique situation.” – Nominated by Network Quality and Network Relations departments
