February 25, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The last full week of February has come and gone, but not before Headlines featured some of the faculty and staff who make Michigan Medicine a remarkable place for patients to work and heal.

For instance, readers learned all about Adult Emergency Services, a team of more than 450 faculty, staff and learners who step up in different ways every day. There was also a feature on nurse Amanda Chiti, who earned the Eric Hartwell Memorial Award for her efforts as a pediatric hematology/oncology nurse; the organization shared details of the new Workplace Violence Prevention Program; and employees were given a preview of the upcoming Vital Voices Engagement Survey.

In case you missed anything, here’s the latest:

Meet Michigan Medicine: Adult Emergency Services

Patient award celebrates excellence in pediatric hematology/oncology nursing

Every year, 7E honors a pediatric hematology/oncology nurse who delivers the highest quality of care; serves as a valued resource to their peers; embraces a collaborative approach to nursing; and is seen as a strong positive role model on the unit. This year, that nurse is Amanda Chiti, who earned the Eric Hartwell Memorial Award for her efforts. Learn more about her impressive honor.

Prevention program targets workplace violence

Unfortunately, employees in health care and social service industries are five times more likely to experience workplace violence than all other workers. With that in mind, the organization is launching the Workplace Violence Prevention Program, aimed at preventing harm and burnout within U-M Health.
