Erin Spletcher, APRN, left, a supervisor at Allen County Regional Hospital, works with emergency room nurses Ty Sigg, Iola, and Brandi Chapman, Iola.

Erin Splechter applied for a job at a convenience store around the same time she applied at Allen County Hospital in 2007. At the time, she was young, single, pregnant and desperate for a job. Any job.

Splecther (then going by her maiden name of Mader), came from a very large family in the very small town of Westphalia. A nurse at the hospital knew her family and told the nursing manager, ?She comes from good stock.?

Splechter started working as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at the hospital when her daughter, Alana, was just 8 weeks old. She was 22 and the hospital?s youngest employee.
