You Miss 100% of the Shots You Don't Take

NOTE: This was taken from the blog of Foundations Health Solutions leader Bob Speelman. Bob works closely and frequently communicates with our Foundations Health facilities. It is so inspiring to see how each care team embodies the vision of our founder and nursing home developer, Brian Colleran, to be "A Culture of Care."

Hilliard, Ohio - 
This week is Environmental Services Week. A time to honor and pay tribute to the outstanding housekeepers and laundry workers throughout all our facilities. They work tirelessly to provide a clean, safe, and comfortable environment for all our residents. One member of this incredible team is Jah-Von Lynch. He is 20 years old and works in the Environmental Services department at Darby Glenn Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Hilliard, Ohio. Jah-Von's mother was an STNA at Darby Glenn for three years and that's how he began to come to work part-time at the facility. After graduating from Davidson High School in Hilliard, Jah-Von began working full time at Darby Glenn.

I noticed Jah-Von this past week as I was spending time at Darby Glenn. Every time I saw him, he had a smile on his face. He was always busy cleaning rooms or delivering laundry and really seemed to enjoy his interactions with the residents. I asked Jah-Von if he enjoyed working here at Darby. He smiled and said, "I love it here!" I asked him why that is, he said, "There are great people here, I like my coworkers, and look up to Luis, my boss. I like making sure the nursing assistants have the laundry and supplies they need to take care of our residents, and I like making sure our residents have a clean room."

I was blown away by Jah-Von's response. To be so young and to have such a positive attitude made me proud to have him as a part of our Foundations Team. I asked Jah-Von who were some of the people that most influenced his life. He said his grandmother, who helped raise him, his mom, his high school football and wrestling coaches, and Luis, his supervisor at Darby Glenn.

I asked Jah-Von if he had a favorite quote, he thought for a second, smiled, and said yes, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." He told me he loves life and said, "You only live once, so do it right the first time. Take your shots. It's too short to waste it and being around negative people. I like being positive and being around other positive people." He went on to tell me how much he enjoys his coworker Jenny, in laundry, because she is so positive, has great energy, and just great to be around.

Jah-Von – We are lucky to have you on our team. We are proud of the work you and your fellow Environmental Services workers do every day across the State. Keep making a difference and keep taking your shots!

Bob Speelman, STNA
