REMINDER: Upcoming Refresh Stations May 11 and May 12

The “refresh station,” sponsored by the HR department, will be available for employees on the balcony of the Menino lobby on the following dates and times:

  • Monday, May 11 from 10:30 p.m. – 1 a.m.
  • Tuesday, May 12 from 6:30 – 9:30 a.m.

All staff are welcome to come through the station (which will be set up with appropriate social distancing) for a quick break and to grab a treat.

REMINDER: Fit Testing Availability and New Hours Beginning Monday, May 11

In an effort to provide frontline healthcare workers with the correct N95 masks, we have been fit testing many of you over the last several weeks. As a result, we have identified alternative masks for a number of individuals. If you have concerns about your mask’s fit, you are welcome to drop in to Menino 2A/B to speak to a fit testing supervisor. Fit testing hours will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Sunday, May 10. Starting Monday, May 11, fit testing hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.


Mother’s Day Shout-out: “You Are My Hero”

"I’ve been honored to follow in your footsteps at BMC, a place you love so much — and a place I’ve fallen in love with, too. You have made such a difference in my life, and in your patients’ lives. You are my hero and if I can be even half the nurse you are, I will consider myself lucky."
-BMC nurse Brittany Bigelow about her mom and fellow BMC nurse Cheryl Smith
