Fresh Coat of Lakeway and Marble Falls donated $3,400 worth of sheet rock and painting work to help make the new space a reality.
Fresh Coat Painters is pleased to be helping Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Marble Falls create a new resting space for their clinical staff. Fresh Coat of Lakeway and Marble Falls donated $3,400 worth of sheet rock and painting work to help make the new space a reality.
The donation was made through Fresh Coat’s national Paint it Forward® program and the painting work was completed between May 29 and June 2, 2017. The quiet room, which is almost complete, is designed to be a space where nurses and other clinical staff can retreat and rest after long shifts.
“The purpose for the room is to allow a quiet, restful area for staff to take a quick nap, if needed, before they drive home after working their hours. Some of our nurses and others work overnight and long shifts. The room will also provide a respite space for staff to take a moment away from the busyness and stress of an emotional day caring for patients,” said Betsy Patterson, CNO for the Hill Country Region, Baylor Scott & White Health. “This is an amazing and meaningful donation, and it is greatly appreciated.”
Patterson said the creation of the resting space was already in the works, but when one of their own was lost in an automobile accident, it was decided it was time to move forward on the project.
“Amanda was one of our bright, promising young nurses who was working night shift in her first nursing job. She was tragically killed in an auto accident after falling asleep on her way home from working overnight. Prior to this tragedy, we had considered creating a quiet area for staff to be able to have a quiet place to have a moment of solitude. After the loss of Amanda, we wanted to create this space in her memory,” Patterson said.
Fresh Coat of Lakeway and Marble Falls, locally owned and operated by Sarah Ross, got involved in the project when Baylor Scott & White asked her for a quote on the work. Ross had done work for the hospital before and had heard about Amanda’s tragic death.
“We’ve been a contractor for the hospital for a few years and, when we heard about what they wanted to do and why, we thought it would make a great Paint it Forward project. When Baylor Scott & White opened in Marble Falls, they really met a huge need for care in our region and we’re thrilled to have them here,” Ross said. “Baylor Scott & White is a non-profit and they do a lot of great work in our community, so I was happy to make this donation. It feels great to do something for people who do so much for people in our area.”
