Crouse Hospital is pleased to announce that Susan Britt, RN, a nurse orientor in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit at the Madison Irving Surgery Center, is the winner of the sixth annual Umeshchandra Patil Family Educational Award.
Working with Crouse Health Foundation’s Endowment Fund, Drs. Umesh and Vijay Patil established the Patil Family Foundation Fund to annually recognize a technician, LPN or RN working in Crouse’s Operating Suite. This award of $3,500 annually is to be used for continuing education, professional development or training in the area of surgical services.
Britt will attend the 2011 American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses National Conference in Seattle, WA. After the conference, she will share what she has learned with her colleagues in surgical services.
