White Plains ICU collects Beacon Award

0

White Plains (N.Y.) Hospital’s ICU has been awarded a silver-level Beacon Award of Excellence by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.
“I want to congratulate our ICU team as this is truly a reflection on their exceptional commitment to our patients and to our organization,” Leigh Anne McMahon, RN, MS, CCRN, senior vice president of patient care services and CNO, said in a news release. “This is a remarkable accomplishment, and a further incentive to continue operating at such an exemplary level.”
The award, which is presented at gold, silver and bronze levels, honors acute and critical care nursing units that achieve the highest-quality outcomes.
The award also provides a mechanism for individual units to measure progress against evidence-based, national criteria for excellence, learn and refine processes and be recognized for their achievements. Applicants are rated on factors including nurse recruitment and retention, staff training, patient outcomes, healthy work environments, leadership and evidence-based practice and research.
