Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (April 15, 2010)---Tina Marinucci, R.N., employee health nurse at Botsford Hospital in Farmington Hills, has been selected as a recipient of a Botsford Hospital 2010 Safety Excellence Award. The award recognizes employees’ contributions to the hospital’s safety initiatives.
Marinucci received the award for organizing and coordinating the hospital’s first employee mass vaccination drill for the seasonal flu vaccine that was held on September 30. The three-part drill vaccinated 2,000 hospital employees in one day and tested the hospital’s ability to cope with a communicable disease outbreak. The first part of the drill consisted of a mass inoculation of all employees. The other two components included lockdown of the hospital at shift change and a screening process for employees coming on to campus to check for symptoms of illness. All employees had to be vaccinated or sign a declination.
Marinucci, says, “The drill could not have happened without the help of my colleagues throughout the hospital. Infection control, pharmacy, security, nursing, volunteer services and environmental services staff were all there to assist me. Nurse managers, who had not given shots for years, were given refresher courses to assist in providing shots to the employees. It was truly a team effort.”
