St Louis-Area Woman Declared Punk Rock Nurse of the Year by Suburban Hospital

By Brian Kruse

St Louis resident Jayme Stabb, also known as Jaime Siedrech, was honored with the Most Punk Rock Nurse Award by the staff of St Cornelius Hospital in Cotteville, Missouri. In a statement issued by Human Resource Director Christina Zore on Tuesday, the hospital staff proclaimed Jaime “Jayme Stabb” Siedrech is “without a doubt the most punk rock nurse we have on the staff here at St Cornelius. The administrators, physicians, and nurses all agree that compared to her, we are all just corporate American flunkies chasing a paycheck to facilitate our boring suburban, Middle American family lives.” The statement went on to describe the many ways that Siedrech is punk rock such as regularly showing up late to work, reminding people she is punk rock when being evaluated for her nursing skills, name-dropping bands no one has heard of, and repeatedly declaring with contempt that she lives in the city, where “shit is real.”

Not all members of the nursing staff at St Cornelius, though, appreciate Stabb’s punk rock ethos. Registered Nurse Karen Darby finds her to be more annoying than anything else. “One day a couple weeks ago, I was walking to my car and Jaime was climbing on top of the statue of St Cornelius in front of the building and screaming, ‘Punk Rock! Punk Rock!’ It was just so stupid. I mean, what are you, a teenager?” Unfortunately, Awesome Totally Awesome was not able to reach Stabb for a comment about her recent award because she refused to talk to us. To quote, ATA is “just a typical corporate, mainstream Middle America media outlet that I have never heard of. And if I’ve never heard of you, you’re not punk rock!”

One of the most significant albums of the 1980s, Jane's Addiction's seminal Nothing's Shocking, almost didn't get recorded.
