Elizabeth Butson was so impressed with the nursing care her late husband Thomas received at the hands of the angels of mercy at Long Island College Hospital, that after his passing she established the Thomas and Elizabeth Butson awards for Clinical Excellence and Compassionate Nursing Practice. This year, as in the last 13 years, the award honored the cream of the crop nurses at the hospital.
Without further ado, the Butson honorees are Sadie Jackson, RN, in the renal unit; Aurelia Gomez, RN, in the oncology unit; Andrew Abrams, RN, in the emergency department; Marilyn Reynolds, PCA, in the oncology department, and Diane Simpson, RN, in the emergency department.
Standing O pal Andrew received top honors for his dedication and devotion to his craft and his patients.
Bravo one and all.
SUNY Downstate Medical Center, University Hospital of Brooklyn at Long Island College Hospital, [339 Hicks St. at Atlantic Avenue in Cobble Hill, (718) 780–1000].
