Recognition Year: 
2012

Adrienne Tisinger has been a Registered Nurse for 37 years and has worked for 23 of those years at the Dayton Veterans Affairs Medical Center. She has worked for the past 20 years in the Intensive Care Unit. Adrienne’s peers describe her as a versatile nurse who has consistently assisted various departments and units such as Cardiology, Acute Care, and Emergency. Improving the delivery of care to veterans has been her priority since the first day of her employment. She manages and administers structured, safe, and effective care for veterans in various stages of critical care. As a clinical bedside nurse, she develops appropriate goals for each situation in collaboration with the patient, family, and other healthcare team members. Adrienne is a strong and loyal patient advocate who encourages patient autonomy. One of her roles is to assist patients and their families with the proper steps in acquiring hospice support while providing quality care for those patients at the end-of-life stage. This is a difficult role, especially when dealing with family dynamics. Adrienne advocates for a peaceful solution for all patients; she believes that final memories should be good memories. Adrienne received her diploma in nursing from the Miami Valley Hospital School of Nursing.
