With the third anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2023, we reflected on how the hospital has adapted to providing excellent care for patients, despite the challenges brought on by COVID.
We continue to be appreciative of the way nurses have stepped up to answer the call to increase census across the hospital while providing outstanding patient-centered care. To meet the increased demand to admit patients waiting in emergency departments, in collaboration with Mass General Brigham System Behavioral Mental Health, we have been able to accept more patients and have done so more rapidly than ever.
Through it all our nursing staff has continued to provide high-quality, evidence-based care for even the most vulnerable of our patients.
This Nursing Network highlights the accomplishments of some of our nursing staff. Join us in congratulating our Margaret C. Tibbetts award winner, Laura Conboy, RN, and Julia Altschule awardee, Sarah Perlo, mental health specialist.
We also want to acknowledge the excellent work done by nurses who advanced in our clinical ladder program: Laura Crupi, RN, BSN, Tier 3, Sheridan Armstrong, ADN, RN, Tier 1, Alex Dunham, BSN, Tier 1, Victoria Maxwell, BSN, Tier 1, and Megan Sly, BSN, RN, Tier 1.
Nursing staff at McLean have much to be proud of and we are so grateful for the care that they provide each and every day.
