Elizabeth Scruth, RN, MPH, CCNS, CCRN, PhD, clinical practice consultant for the clinical effectiveness team at Kaiser Permanente’s Regional Quality and Regulatory Services in Oakland, Calif., has been nominated by the Society of Critical Care Medicine to serve on its committee addressing national guidelines development on family and patient-centered care in ICUs. She also was inducted as a fellow into the American College of Critical Care Medicine in January, according to a news release.

The SCCM and ACCCM recognition follows publication of two of Scruth’s research projects. “Visitation policies and practices in U.S. ICUs” (Critical Care Forum, open access, Vol. 17, Issue 2, ccforum.com/content/17/2/R71) surveyed 606 hospitals from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It was funded through a $100,000 grant from Kaiser’s Community Benefit Program.

The second project, “Gender and secondary risk assessment following an ST-elevation myocardial infarction” (Journal of Nursing: Research and Reviews, Dovepress, open access, Vol. 2013:3, pages 125–131), was the first study of its kind to focus exclusively on female patients.
