Meet Shayla

As a nurse, Shayla Stidham says the most rewarding part of her job is the relationship she develops with patients, which helps ensure that all of their healthcare needs are met through all phases of life.

“I grew up in this area my whole life. I’ve enjoyed watching the patients in the community become friends and family. I’ve been able to take care of them through all phases of their lives.”

Shayla is well-versed at helping people navigate the aging process as the coordinator of Coquille Valley Hospital’s Medicare Wellness Program.

The annual Medicare Wellness exam is for patients who have been on Medicare Part B healthcare insurance for more than a year. This exam differs from an annual physical exam, focusing instead on each patient’s personalized healthcare plan to help prevent disease or disability as they age. Shayla puts patients in touch with any resources they might need and also stresses the importance of staying active.

“We make sure we have closed all the healthcare gaps as far as preventative care is concerned,” Shayla says. “We have time for things that providers typically don’t have during their regular visit.”

Shayla lets her patients know that she is their advocate, ensuring that their needs are met and that their healthcare journey is a collaboration.

For her work and devotion, Shayla has been nominated for a DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, touted for her attention to detail and the time she invests in taking care of patients, calling to schedule visits, preparing patients’ charts and genuinely caring for patients’ health.

She prides herself on being a doer and getting things done on time. When she’s not caring for patients, Shayla enjoys spending time outdoors, either hiking, camping or kayaking.

“I am always up for adventure, ready to help or lead any projects that need completed,” she says.
