Congratulations to Beth Carey, LPN, Infection Prevention Coordinator at Tyrone Hospital for being nominated and elected for Infection Prevention Today’s National list of Who’s Who in Infection Prevention for 2013.

Mrs. Carey was recognized for her hard work to maintain the standards for isolation and surveillance, being very proactive and innovative in the promotion of hand washing – most recently initiating and championing Tyrone Hospital’s “Don’t Bug Me Hand Hygiene Campaign”, spearheading a committee of peer champions to promote hand washing, initiating numerous infection prevention policies and developing an employee seasonal influenza vaccine campaign that helped Tyrone Hospital exceed the requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, raising Tyrone Hospital’s compliance rate to 93 percent for the 2012-2013 influenza season.

“I was very surprised and overwhelmed when I learned about this recognition,” said Mrs. Carey. “Providing and maintaining a safe environment, and the best care possible for our patients can be challenging. Without the cooperation from administration and hospital staff, my job would be impossible. It is truly a team effort.”
