LLUMC critical care team named best team in 2007
The Loma Linda University critical care specialty team and intracampus transport is featured in the April 30, 2007, issue of Advance for Nurses.
Loma Linda University Medical Center’s critical care specialty team and intracampus transport was named the 2007 best nursing team in the Southern California area.
Pictured on the cover of the April 30, 2007, issue of Advance for Nurses, the team was noted by the editor of the publication as “not just a team that personifies what it means to be a cohesive, progressive, forward-thinking group providing outstanding patient- centered care. It’s also a team that’s challenging the very definition of continuity of care and re-setting the bar on patient safety.
Loma Linda’s team has 29 registered nurses, two emergency medical technicians, and one physician. The cardinal rule of the team is “know what you don’t know.”
Team leader Donna Kotlar, RN, noted that “as a team, we’ve become so instinctual that we’ve learned to use whatever is at our disposal to get the job done.”
