Cooper Honors Two Outstanding Nurses With DAISY Award

daisycomboCooper University Health Care recognized Jacqueline Engle, RN, Post-Partum Unit, of West Deptford, NJ, and Sean VanBastelaar, RN, Intensive Care Unit, of Doylestown, PA, with The DAISY Award for providing exceptional care.

Jacqueline was nominated by a patient who described her as “friendly, informative and professional” following the birth of her son. The patient said Engle’s comforting words helped her cope after learning her baby was born with Down syndrome.

Sean was recognized by a family for his care of their critically ill mother. They characterized Sean as a compassionate and empathetic caregiver who “not only checked on our mother consistently, but on us as well.”

The DAISY Award, established by The DAISY Foundation™, is an international program that celebrates the extraordinary care given by nurses every day. It is presented in collaboration with the American Organization of Nurse Executives. Each quarter, Cooper honors a nurse with The DAISY Award.

Each winner receives a DAISY Award recipient pin, a Healer’s Touch hand-carved statue, an award certificate and a gift certificate to Cinnabon®. In addition, the selected nurse’s unit receives a banner to post for the quarter.

Anyone—patients, families, and professional colleagues—may nominate a Cooper nurse for The DAISY Award. The DAISY nomination materials are located on nursing units and other public locations throughout Cooper’s Camden Campus and at outpatient offices, as well as online through the Cooper website.

The Cooper Neurological Institute Offers the Highest Level of Epilepsy Care

LOGOAECLogoCMYKThe Cooper Neurological Institute (CNI) Epilepsy Program has been accredited as a Level 4 epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC)—a designation reserved for hospitals and medical centers offering the most comprehensive and specialized epilepsy care.

As the highest recognition given by the NAEC, the Level 4 recognizes Cooper for having the professional expertise and facilities capable of providing more complex and progressive forms of medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for this disorder as well as education, psychosocial counseling, social services and more.

“This national recognition is a true testament to the high-level of specialized patient-centered care Cooper provides for patients with epilepsy, including individuals who may be viewed as complicated or untreatable,” Melissa Carran, MD, Chair and Chief, Department of Neurology. “Our goal is to help reduce, control or even eliminate the seizures associated with the disorder in order to restore a person to a normal, productive life.”

Epilepsy, a disorder that causes abnormal electrical activity in the brain (seizures), is one of the country’s most common disabling neurological conditions, affecting more than 2.5 million Americans. Those affected by epilepsy are generally the very young and the elderly. The disorder has many causes including brain injury, infection, stroke, tumor or hereditary factors.  In some cases, the exact cause cannot be identified. Treatment for the disorder often involves surgery.

In 1989, the NAEC created guidelines for specialized epilepsy centers that focused on early and accurate diagnosis and appropriate intervention for patients with epilepsy. This document was the first of its kind, and became a nationally recognized and accepted set of guidelines for practitioners and administrators of specialized epilepsy care. The NAEC Board has spent the past several years developing and implementing a process to more formally accredit specialized epilepsy centers.

CNI is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide-range of neurological and neurosurgical conditions including spinal trauma, stroke and hydrocephalus, as well as providing comprehensive neuro-oncology and neuromuscular care. As part of CNI, the Epilepsy Treatment Program provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment of individuals who have poorly controlled epilepsy.

Pinwheel Garden Planted at Cooper University Hospital To Recognize Child Abuse Awareness Month

Pinwheel planting 2016 002Employees and staff of Cooper University Health Care “planted” a pinwheel garden on the front lawn of Cooper University Hospital in honor of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention and Awareness Month. The 59 blue pinwheels placed represent the approximately 59,000 households in Camden County with children under the age of 18. In addition, the exterior of Cooper University Hospital is aglow in blue lights throughout the month of April to bring further awareness.

“Child abuse and neglect ruin children’s lives,” said Kathryn M. McCans, MD, FAAP, attending physician in Cooper’s department of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and expert in child abuse and neglect.  “The pinwheel garden brings much-needed attention to the problem and is a stunning reminder how important it is for everyone to play a role in proving our children with a safe and nurturing life.”

According to the most recent statistics, more than 700,000 children annually are victims of maltreatment. More than 1,500 died as a result of abuse or neglect. Cooper is partnering with Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey’s “Pinwheels for Prevention” campaign to recognize and educate our community on the problem.

“These children deserve better and it’s our job to raise awareness and get these families help before another innocent child is hurt. Speak up and tell someone if you suspect abuse, you could be saving a child’s life,” implored Dr. McCans.

Prevent Child Abuse America’s Pinwheels for Prevention campaign is an effort created to change the way our nation thinks about prevention and how we can deliver on our commitment to America’s children. The blue pinwheels are the new symbol for child abuse and are an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve. To learn more please visit pinwheelsforprevention.org.
