A Smile

A smile costs nothing, but gives much-
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it usually lasts forever.
None are so rich that can get along without it-
And none are so poor but that can be made rich by it.

It enriches those who receive, without making poor those who give-
It creates sunshine in the home,
Fosters good will in business,
and is the best antidote for trouble-
And yet it cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is of no value
unless it is given away.

Some people are too busy to give you a smile-
Give them one of yours-
For the good Lord knows that no one needs a smile so badly
As he or she who has no more smiles left to give.

Influenza Survey

Aureus Medical would like to take this opportunity to personally encourage you to receive an influenza (flu) vaccination this year. As a healthcare professional, you may have exposure to the influenza virus.

The 2012-2013 flu vaccine, http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season/upcoming.htm, will protect against three different flu viruses that experts predict will be the most common during the current flu season:

  • an A/California/7/2009(H1N1)pdmo9-like virus;
  • an A/Victoria/361/2011(H3N2)-like virus;
  • a B/Wisconsin/1/2010-like virus (from the B/Yamagata linage of viruses)

We recently emailed our current employees asking them to complete an online influenza survey. If you haven’t already, please take the time to login to www.aureusmedical.com. Click on “message center” to be taken to a link to complete this brief survey.

Please Note: If you decide to decline the vaccine, but are assigned to a facility that may not allow you to decline, you will need to comply with their requirements.

THANK YOU for your participation!

Joe T., Occupational Therapist Assistant
Joe T. has been awarded the honor of 2012 Employee of the Year for the Rehabilitation Therapy Division of Aureus Medical Group. Joe is the type of traveler we all wish for, and would give anything to be able to have a 1000 more just like him. He is incredibly reliable, missing work only a few times in the last 5 years of contracts, with little to no time off. Joe exudes positivity wherever he goes, and tends to bring everyone around him up to his level of fun. More than once, Joe has heard that more than anything the employees and residents of a facility miss his bellowing laugh upon his departure. Joe has a special ability to motivate the unmotivated, brighten the day of all those
