Dr. Michael Minaie Receives ABSMC Caring for People Award

We are proud to share that Dr. Minaie is the first physician to receive the inaugural Caring for People Award at ABSMC. Dr. Minaie was nominated by his peers and an employee recognition committee was excited to recognize his great impact at our hospital.  The Hummingbird Award recognizes physicians who go beyond exceptional expectations and Dr. Minaie is a great example of a clinician who practices with compassion and a high standard of care. These are comments from Dr. Minaie’s nomination:

“Outstanding bedside manners, polite, professional and a Team Player. Goes extra mile to explain plan of care to patients and their family. Incredible teacher for patients and staff. Such a joy to work with wish we had more staff like him!” – Deborah Issac, RN, CCRN, ICU/CPU

Dr. Minaie is great team player. In every encounter he is professional, listens to the nurses & patients and shows respect to everyone. Dr. Minaie’s calm demeanor ensures a calm shift, he’s pleasant to work with, he teaches the floor nurses, never showing irritation and frustration about situations. Dr. Minaie also provided compassionate care to a young dying patient. The ICU had a very young critically ill patient, all the interventions maintaining her blood pressure where the patient maxed out and not responding. Dr. Minaie very compassionately and honestly spoke with the patient’s family providing them with options. The family decided on compassionate extubation and staying with the patient until she passed away. The family expressed gratitude to Dr. Minaie for being honest and empathetic. – Cynthia Stacy, Administrative Nursing Supervisor
