Botsford News Release


Botsford Trauma Program Employees Recognized for Community Safety Contributions

Farmington Hills, Mich. (April 9, 2010)---At Botsford Hospital, safety is a top priority for healthcare workers providing personal and compassionate care to their patients. For Shauna DiPasquo, R.N., and Barbara Smith, R.N., safety and injury prevention is a major focus of their jobs at Botsford. As employees of the Trauma Services department, the two women work to provide safety and injury prevention education to the community. In recognition of this, DiPasquo and Smith have been selected as recipients of a Botsford Hospital 2010 Safety Excellence Award for contributing to the hospital’s safety initiatives. 
Thanks to DiPasquo and Smith, Botsford Hospital educated more than 3,000 community members about safety and injury prevention last year. They participated in multiple health fairs and school programs. They also plan Botsford’s annual Safety and Injury Prevention Fair that provides activities and tools for families in the Botsford service area. 
Marge Hasler, R.N., Botsford Hospital’s vice president and chief nursing officer and chair of the hospital’s Safety Board, says, “Shauna and Barb are dedicated to educating the community about safety and injury prevention. As part of their initiatives, they devoted much of the past year preparing for Botsford to become a verified trauma center. Thanks to their efforts, Botsford is the first Level II Trauma Center serving western Oakland County. The ability to care for critically injured patients with life-threatening conditions sets us apart from other area hospitals. Shauna and Barb should be very proud of the work they have done as they make a difference in the lives of thousands.”
