Cindy Wickstrom ENA Scholarship
I want to congratulate Olean General Hospital Emergency Department Nurse and SAFE Provider Cindy Wickstrom, RN, on her receiving a $3,000 scholarship from the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) Foundation to complete her BSN. Cindy has been a certified Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner with our SAFE program since 2015. The ENA Foundation’s support is an indication of the dedication and professionalism Cindy displays in her day-to-day work as a nurse. Founded in 1970, the ENA develops nursing industry-leading practice standards and guidelines. Since 1991, the ENA Foundation has provided more than $2.5 million in educational scholarships and research grants to emergency healthcare professionals.
Pediatric Sports Injuries
We hosted a Pediatric Sports Injuries training Tuesday for more than 50 EMS providers from Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties. Addressing pediatric and youth sports injuries, particularly concussions is a focus of our Child Health and Safety Team. The training was presented by Malachi M. Fisher, EMT-P BA, Coordinator of Trauma Injury Prevention and Educational Outreach at Women and Children’s Hospital. The training covered scene operations, the types of sports and types of injuries most often seen, working with athletic trainers, working with parents and transport decisions. This training was presented live at Olean General Hospital and via distance learning technology at Jones Memorial Hospital and the ALSTAR Training Center in Jamestown.
