May, 2023 - GHHS Gold Humanism Honor Society Student of the Month is Payton Hollenshead, MSIII!

Payton is an asset to every team she has been a part of. She constantly aims to help those around her including patients, residents, and other hospital staff. Additionally, she treats the patients as if they were own family. One such example of her benevolence involved a patient with severe altered mental status. The patient was unaware of their surroundings, had no one familiar present in their room, and was terrified as they were about to receive a lumbar puncture. Payton continuously returned to the room every spare moment she got prior to the procedure to calm and reassure the patient. Payton stayed throughout the course of the procedure to hold their hand and to make them feel as comfortable as possible. This is only one instance of the many episodes of unwavering compassion Payton has exhibited. She is truly going to be an excellent physician!

  • I will Care for my patients with Compassion, Respect, Empathy, Integrity and Clinical Excellence;
  • I will Listen to my patients with my whole being;
  • I will Advocate for each patient as a unique individual;
  • I will Serve as a role model and mentor to promote humanism in health care;
  • I will Remember always the healing power of acts of caring;
  • I will Dedicate myself to joining with others to make health care optimal for all.
