September was National CNS Recognition Week! Clinical Nurse Specialists at UMHS are a unique group of advanced practice nurses who improve patient care and processes through evidenced-based research and practice, in collaboration with both nurses and physicians, to drive positive changes in quality outcomes. Their committed efforts help develop policies, procedures and best practices to reduce the incidence of complications in our hospitalized patients, reduce the length of stay, and decrease costs. Clinical Nurse Specialists influence outcomes using their clinical expertise, system innovation and devotion to nursing practice. At UMHS we are privileged to have 35 Clinical Nurse Specialists working with us every day. Please join me in thanking all our Clinical Nurse Specialists for their outstanding contributions to the work we do every day to provide the finest care to our patients.
