Meraklis’ team members are quick to describe her as “phenomenal, special, professional, unstoppable, full of energy and simply perfect to work with”. She is a textbook example of a bedside Registered Nurse and an excellent leader in the role of Charge Nurse, displaying exceptional organizational and communication skills.

Meraklis seamlessly integrates knowledge, experience and best practices into patient care with safety as a priority. She is held in very high regard by the providers, staff, and her peers. She works hard to ensure the work-flow is patient centric and the most effective and efficient it can be. She is known for her collaboration with the Emergency Department, Labor and Delivery, and other support units as shown by the positive feedback received from teams across the various service lines. 

She promotes teamwork on the unit and is often hosting celebrations for team members. She contributes to the on-boarding of new staff and is fast to help them feel welcomed and part of our team. Eileen is an exceptional nurse and person who raises the bar for all us.

“I’m speechless. Thank you,” Meraklis stated upon being named the Employee of the Month “I so appreciate this. I’m overwhelmed!” Reflecting later on the award, Meraklis said “I work with an amazing group of people here at OBH, but especially the Med/Surg staff with whom I share this recognition,” she continued, “When I leave for work in the morning my husband says “make a difference” and I guess this award makes me think there are days that I actually do! Thank you so much.”
