Emergency Medical Associates recently hosted its 13th annual Winter Nurse Forum, an educational event and networking luncheon for emergency department nurses and hospital leadership.

Held Dec. 14, 2011, at The Manor in West Orange, N.J., the annual forum brought together more than 80 nurses and hospital leadership from emergency department clients of Emergency Medical Associates in New York and New Jersey.

During the forum, Sharon Kelly, MSN, RN, manager of emergency services, and Lou Faraone, RN, CEN, clinical coordinator of emergency services for Overlook Medical Center’s Union and Summit campuses, discussed Overlook Medical Center at Union’s recent recognition from the Emergency Nurses Association. The satellite emergency department was honored this summer with the organization’s prestigious Lantern Award.

Michael Bessette, MD, emergency department director at Jersey City Medical Center and Nancy Floom, assistant director of social work/case management at Jersey City Medical Center also discussed how to address the serial inebriate population in Hudson County, and the steps the two facilities are taking to decrease “frequent flyers” in their respective emergency departments.
