Fort Worth Hospital Earns Highest Recognition From American Association Of Critical Care Nurses
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. - The American Association of Critical Care Nurses has honored Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth’s ICU trauma unit with its highest recognition.
The Hospital District facility was awarded a Gold Beacon Award for showing improved patient outcomes and satisfaction. “For nurses, a beacon award signals a positive and supportive work environment with greater collaboration between colleagues and leaders, higher morale, and lower turnover,” says spokeswoman Megan Brooks.
The hospital is a designated Level II Trauma Center, providing an integrated team of surgeons, nurses, and other practitioners 24 hours a day. There are 20 beds in the trauma unit. The recognition lasts for the next three years.
“We have an exceptional team in the trauma ICU that works hard to provide quality, compassionate care to our patients and families every day,” said Charlsea Prichard, manager of the trauma intensive care unit, in a statement. “We’re honored the AACN has recognized our nurses for their commitment to exceeding high national standards in patient outcomes and fostering a positive work environment.”
