The Beauséjour Regional Health Authority Recognizes Excellence in Nursing

Friday, May 30, 2008

To mark National Nursing Week, from May 12th to 18th, the Beauséjour Regional Health Authority conferred its Excellence in Care Awards to nurses and licensed practical nurses who, in the last year, distinguished themselves in nursing care.

The Flambeau Award is chosen by peers to acknowledge the work of a nurse who attains a particularly high level of excellence in her or his field or in the work environment.

It was awarded to:

  • Mrs. Peggy Belliveau, Support Services Worker at the Oncology Unit of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Regional Hospital;
  • Mr. Robert Chiasson, Licensed Practical Nurse at the Psychiatric Unit of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Regional Hospital
  • Mrs. Louise Johnson, Nurse Manager/Administrative Coordinator for the Beauséjour Regional Health Authority
  • Mrs. Anita Lavoie, Bedside Nurse at the Emergency Services of the Stella-Maris-de-Kent Hospital
  • Mrs. Lynn Ryan, Nurse Counselor at the Birth Unit and Obstetrics Clinic of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Regional Hospital

The Trampoline Award is granted to a person or a group who implemented an innovative project that reached excellence in nursing care or helped improve the work environment.

This year, it was awarded to:

  • Mrs. Gisèle Belliveau-Gould, Nurse Manager, who implemented the Smoking Cessation Program, to help patients stop smoking. She develops a personalized treatment plan with patients that helps them better understand why they smoke, evaluate their motives for quitting, measure their level of addiction to nicotine and, in the end, outline an action plan that meets their needs.
  • Mrs. Suzanne Robichaud, Director of the Telehealth and Research Department of the Beauséjour Regional Health Authority and Mrs. Alice LeBouthillier, Training Counselor at the Education Department of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Regional Hospital for the www.transmissionzero.ca.This new resource was created to inform different groups, such as health professionals, school teachers and the public in general on different methods of infection control.

The Nursing Department of the Beauséjour Regional Health Authority employs more than 900 nurses and licensed practical nurses who provide quality care that focus on prevention of illnesses and promotion of health, recovery, rehabilitation and support, both in the hospital environment and in the community.
