I have 24 years of experience, and specialize in the field of emergency nursing with specific knowledge in the areas of emergency/trauma patient care, EMTALA regulations and joint commission standards. I have published on such topics as Identifying victims of domestic violence, trauma research in review and disaster and emergency planning. I have testified on emergency nursing care, patient safety and invasive procedures. I assisted with the development of a “Code STEMI” program decreasing door to reperfusion time from 120 min to 60 min and less for patients with ST elevation myocardial infarctions. Developed the emergency department pneumonia treatment protocol and standing orders to assure antibiotic administration within 4 hours of arrival, with a 99% achievement rate. Increased patient satisfaction by streamlining the registration process decreasing data input screens from 17 to 3, thus decreasing registration time from 20 min. to 5 min.
