Congratulations to Stephanie Robertson, Clincal Educator ER, Loree Vint, Clinical Educator Specialty Courses, and Stacey Kitz, EMO for their nomination as CAEP Women in Emergency Medicine Local Heroes. This group was nominated by Dr. Grobb and the BRHC ER staff for their amazing contributions in educating and preparing the BRHC ER team for Covid-19 response. Thank you for your unwaivering dedication and calm, reassuring presence during a challenging time!
When COVID-19 first emerged, Stacey, Stephanie, and Loree took the lead in our health region, Prairie Mountain Health, in western Manitoba. They work in Brandon, Manitoba at the Brandon Regional Health Center. Dr Kitz is an emergency physician and Loree and Stephanie are two of our nurse educators. They spent countless hours and energy into developing protocols, running SIM for staff, attending meetings, educating staff as protocols and recommendations changed daily, and helped to quell our fears and anxieties. They have helped us all more than they know! We are so grateful and privileged to have these women as colleagues who were willing to go the extra mile for our team and for our health region!
