Danecka Randolph has been busy since gracing the pages of our inaugural issue. As a healthcare worker, Mrs. Randolph is not merely surviving during COVID; indeed, she is thriving and helping others to thrive, as well! Let's read the rest of Jay L. Harris's interview with our Front Line Chic to see what keeps her motivated:
JLH: Share some of your recent success stories.
DR: In 2020, I led my team in successfully navigating system accreditation surveys during a pandemic to achieve a record low number of nonconformities based on a set of standards aimed at improving the quality of care for the patients we serve. This year was quite different for our team because it significantly destabilized our usual departmental support platforms. We had to learn to coordinate surveys using a virtual platform and with less staffing due to staff redeployments to frontline care. We had an amazing survey year, and I could not be more proud of my team!
JLH: We see you have multiple degrees. How has your education helped you over the years? Has there ever been a time when you felt your education was a hindrance?
DR: My education has never been a hindrance for me. In fact, it has afforded me the opportunity to advance in nursing leadership and to lead the accreditation program for each of the hospitals in our health system.
JLH: Who is your spirit animal?
DR: My spirit animal is probably my best friend. We are alike in so many ways but are also very different. She loves to be in the moment and also relies heavily on her faith. She loves to make others laugh and is one of the most easy-going people I know. I look up to her because she is always able to find something positive about most things in life.
JLH: What is/are your guilty pleasure(s)?
DR: Chocolate, wine, and delicious foods are all my guilty pleasures!
JLH: If you could ask any iconic woman of your choice 1 question, who would that be, and what would you ask?
DR: I would ask Michelle Obama how she has been able to maintain her professionalism and sanity despite being constantly attacked as she raised the bar as the country’s first African American first lady.
