Celebrating IV Nurses Day – January 25th
IV nurses are essential in the coordination of care for patients. From inserting intravenous lines to PICC lines and the education/maintenance of these lines to provide short and long term treatment for patients. They are an integral part of the healthcare team and support healing through evidence based practice.
Running: A Way to Show My Gratitude
On Sunday, September 6th, I completed the Boston Marathon in Bangor. I created my own start/finish line, my own race course, I had water stations, I had an aid station with my own medical team (my hubby!), and a cheering squad (my awesome neighbors). And, it was AMAZING! I thought about everyone who believed in me and who made donations to BCH. I thought about the healthcare team who saved Katie’s life and all the patient partners. I thought about how my simple act of lacing up has made such a profound difference in, not only my life, but in the lives of those who need BCH.
