Cameos of Caring

The Hospice of Dayton—Sharon Spruill

Recognition Year: 
2012

Sharon Spruill has been a Registered Nurse for 28 years and has worked for 25 of those years at The Hospice of Dayton. She is currently the RN Hospital Care Liaison in the Admissions Department. Sharon meets her patients when physicians recommend hospice care and patients and families feel like “there’s nothing left.” Sharon is committed to patient-centered care and shows that commitment every day by ensuring that all patients and families who need hospice care are seen that day and given care. At these difficult times, Sharon explains that Hospice of Dayton’s end-of-life care focuses on the patient’s quality of life. Sharon’s quiet presence lets her patients and their families know that they are not alone on this journey. Her clinical expertise allows her to admit patients and place them in the appropriate level of care within the hospice program. Because she does this with such efficiency, patients and their families can move from the level of care they were familiar with to hospice services while feeling safe and supported. Sharon earned her B.S.N. from Wright State University and is a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse. She is the first employee at Hospice of Dayton to reach the mark of 25 years of continuous service.
