West Scranton woman’s passion for helping others extends to nursing career and humanitarian work

JASON FARMER / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER West Scranton resident and registered nurse Maryann Cwalinski recently returned from a service trip to the Dominican Republic.

 

Freshly graduated and posing in her crisp, white lab coat, Maryann Cwalinski stands ready to fulfill her nearly 30-year-old dream.

Sitting in front of the Weinberg Memorial Library at the University of Scranton, where she received her bachelor’s degree in nursing just several days before, the West Scranton resident recently recalled the event that made her passionate about the profession in the first place.

At the young age of 22, one of Ms. Cwalinski’s closest friends passed away from cancer. Ms. Cwalinski was present at the time of the diagnosis, and after watching someone she loved go through such suffering, Ms. Cwalinski knew that nursing was a career worth pursuing.

“I felt after that that this was my calling,” said Ms. Cwalinski, now a registered nurse at Allied Services.

However, the interest may have begun earlier than that. When Ms. Cwalinski was 5, she wound up in the hospital with pneumonia. The nurses there made quite an impact on her, so much that her aunt, Reinelda Pantle, purchased a nurse’s outfit that the tot wore everyday during her hospital stay. She even took to following the pediatric nurses on their rounds.

While in school, Ms. Cwalinski spent a period of time still trying to decide whether or not to study nursing.

Upon graduating, she took a job working at an optician’s office as an office manager. But, following her friend’s death, Ms. Cwalinski decided to leave her position to attend Luzerne County Community College and Career Technology Center of Lackawanna County to become a licensed practical nurse.

In June 2012, she started working as a rehabilitation aide at Allied Services. After graduating, she advanced to an LPN position.

While she was pursuing her master’s degree, Allied allowed her to work per diem.

“I’ve worked my way up through the health system, which has helped my career also,” she said.

Service learning

Ms. Cwalinski has not only used her determination to work for herself, but for others as well.

In March, she went on a service trip during the university’s spring break to Sosua, a small town located on the northern coastline of the Dominican Republic. She traveled with nine other nursing students and two instructors.

The group worked with Impact Ministries, a nonprofit organization, to treat local residents as well as Haitian refugees. Over the course of five days, they saw more than 1,000 patients.

She said the children in the villages would walk with the students and hold their hands. They were overjoyed when the students gave them simple items like shoes.

“We would give them sneakers and it didn’t even matter if they fit,” Ms. Cwalinski said. “They don’t understand our English, but they understand our kindness.”

The experience changed the way she saw the profession, Ms. Cwalinski said. “It makes you more humble. I told my niece and nephew, I wish I could take them to see.”

Now, Ms. Cwalinski’s future plans include enrolling in graduate school to advance her career and become a nurse practitioner.

Her career is the result of hard work and a passion that has never waned. On Ms. Cwalinski’s graduation day from U of S, she decorated her cap with the quote, “She believed she could, so she did,” a maxim that perfectly encapsulates her can-do approach to life.

Christina Flaherty, MS, OTR/L

"What I enjoy about occupational therapy is that it’s very personal. You can see so much success with a patient, especially a child, when you find what it is that they love and want to be able to do."

Meet Christina Flaherty, MS, OTR/L!  During her junior year of high school, Christina spent some time shadowing the occupational therapists at Heinz Rehab Hospital in Wilkes-Barre and that’s when she knew OT was the career for her.

Christina earned her master’s degree in Occupational Therapy at Duquesne University and completed a residency at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. When the chance arose to return to her home town and begin working in her chosen field, she jumped at the opportunity.

Since October of 2015, Christina has been honored to be a part of the “family” in the pediatric therapy department at Heinz Rehab Hospital.  “We are very patient-oriented. All the families know each other and all of the therapists know the families of the patients. Even if they aren’t your patient, you still get to know everyone!” says Christina.

Occupational therapists have a huge impact on our patients’ lives, but the profession can be misunderstood, given its broad ranging application.  Occupational therapists promote skill development and independence in all activities of daily living. For an adult, this may mean looking at the areas of self-care, home-making, leisure, and work. For children, the occupations may include playing in the park with friends, washing hands, going to the bathroom, cutting with scissors, drawing, etc.

Since joining Allied Services, Christina has also become certified in the Vision program which helps individuals gain back their functional vision for reading and writing. For her pediatric patients it can help reduce frustrations with their school work.

Christina enjoys working with each individual child, helping them to work towards their goals.

“What I enjoy about occupational therapy is that it’s very personal. You can see so much success with a patient, especially a child, when you find what it is that they love and want to be able to do.” Whether that means being able to tie their shoe laces or play their favorite game, Christina and her fellow occupational therapists will be there to help.

Felix Marrero, Operations Analyst

"If there is anything that one of us can’t figure out, we work really well together as a team to solve the problem. We’re constantly learning new things, so being a part of team can make things easier."

Meet Felix Marrero!  While Felix is a fairly new employee, he is no stranger to Allied Services. From the age of 3 to 17, Felix received therapy at Allied Services. After high school, he studied Computer Information Technology at Johnson College.  When the time came to do a summer internship, he immediately thought of Allied Services. After graduation, Felix was hired for his current full time position as an Operations Analyst in the Information Technology Department.

The department handles the routine information technology needs of Allied Services’ 3,000 plus employees. If you’ve ever been locked out of the system, had a program stop working, or lost your ability to print, you may have heard Felix’s friendly voice when you called the Helpdesk for support.  From small technical glitches to major system shutdowns, Felix is a part of the dedicated team that keeps Allied Services up and running!  “Most people are really friendly when they call.  I like being able to help them out, and get them going again”, says Felix.

In more recent years, the department’s workload has increased to meet the demands for greater integration of technology with patient care. In the past five years alone, Allied Services has implemented Aspire, a custom electronic medical record system that not only protects patient confidentiality but also maximizes the efficiency of record keeping.

The  department continues to stay at the cutting edge of technology both for patients and for employees. While working in information technology can sometimes be stressful, Felix enjoys working in a department where everyone helps each other.  “If there is anything that one of us can’t figure out, we work really well together as a team to solve the problem.  We’re constantly learning new things, so being a part of team can make things easier.”

As Director of Social Services at Allied Services Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center, Kathleen Osborne heads up a team of social workers dedicated to making the residents’ lives more fulfilled and satisfied. Part of that role means providing emotional support to the residents and their families. Social workers follow up on any request or concern that a resident may have, attempt to resolve any issues, and work with the other disciplines to make the resident feel at ease.

The social workers’ goal is to assist the resident in adjusting to the environment so they can continue to lead a full and productive life.

“We reinforce that just because they (the residents) need assistance and must reside in this type of facility, we can continue to learn from them and they in turn have a purpose. We stress resident rights and dignity and it is our responsibility to enforce these throughout their stay with us.  We, as social workers, feel that everyone deserves a chance at happiness no matter where one lives and we assist them in meeting this goal as best as we can.”
