The Center for Donation & Transplant (CDT) nominated three Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home nurses for the CDT’s 2014-2015 Lyn LaBarre Donate Life Healthcare Champion of the Year Award. Nurses Charmaine Miskinis, RN, Tina Barber, RN, and Sari Stewart, RN, were honored at the 2015 Donate Life Symposium and Celebration Dinner held in April.
Among the many health care professionals in the 43 hospitals that CDT serves, these three Nathan Littauer nurses were nominated by CDT in recognition of their outstanding dedication to organ and tissue donation. They are each responsible for over two dozen timely referrals in 2014, bringing the Littauer donation count to 78 in 2014.
“On behalf of CDT and the entire donation and transplant community, thank you and your staff for encouraging the gift of life” said Organ Procurement Coordinator, Joey C. Nuqui, Center for Donation.
Littauer’s Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer Stephanie Fishel, notes, “I am proud of our nurses Charmaine, Tina and Sari for their leadership and teamwork. Their efforts are a direct reflection of Littauer nurses as patient and family advocates.”
