What if. Could AAMC respond like Boston hospitals? The Boston terror events are still fresh in our minds. As nurses, the heroic stories of the first responders and health care workers who cared for victims hit especially close to home.
In this post 9/11 world, we have to ask: Would AAMC be able to respond as effectively as the Boston hospitals in a similar event? Patty Sherman, MSN, RN, AAMC’s Emergency Management Coordinator, says yes. Here, she’ll tell you why. Congrats to Charlotte Wallace, RN, AAMC’s Sustainability Coordinator. Charlotte was recently awarded the Nursing Leadership in Environmental Health Award and is featured on the Johnson & Johnson Nursing Notes web site. Read her story here.
