2013 PSW of the Year Award: Vaghnette Chatzikiriakos
Vaughnette was nominated by Heather Quesnelle Vice President and Chief Nurse Executive with Brockville General Hospital. In addition to a dedication to her patients and co-workers, Vaughnette was a key member of a team responsible for the implementation of a new care delivery model in acute care at Brockville General Hospital. Enhanced Activation and Restorative Care is a specialized program that is transforming health care by helping seniors remain independent while undergoing acute medical treatment. She was selected to work on this project because of her deep understanding of her role and caring for elderly patients. The program she helped develop was identified as a Best Practice by Accreditation Canada and she co-authored an article on the subject for the “Healthcare Management Forum” journal, which was a featured article for the spring 2012 edition. Congratulations Vaughnette!
