Cardiac Staff Matters 03/08/15

Cardiac Staff Matters is a regular publication of updates, information, points to ponder, and news items that are significant to the Program. The aim is to pass these points on during huddles, in conversations, and by posting in clinical areas to ensure widest dissemination.

1. In anticipation of the upcoming opening of the expanded Acute Coronary Care Unit at SBH, some reorganization has taken place. The existing CCU (which will be the ACCU when finished) will be headed by Roseanne Labossiere-Gee as Program Team Manager and Chris Kuttnig as Continuing Education Instructor. Cheryl Swanson will be the PTM on the Cardiology Inpatient Unit (5AS) with Emily Phillips as the Continuing Education Instructor.

2. There are a number of new staff in EKG/Holter Services at Health Sciences Centre: Kathryn Hurtig started June 15 joined by Samantha Nedokus and Darcy Marion on July 13. And David Lawrence began as Charge Technologist on July 6. Welcome to all of you—we’re very glad to have you aboard!

3. Thoughts for Today: "It is not a question of how well each process works, the question is how well they all work together." -- Lloyd Dobens

“Isn't it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation?” -- Zig Ziglar

“One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.” --Bryant H. McGill

REMINDER: Cardiac Staff Matters will not be published on August 17. If you have any news, items of interest or information that you want to pass on to the rest of the Program and/or if you have feedback, please contact Kelly Lukaszewski at klukaszewski@sbgh.mb.ca or 204.237.2743
