Neuroscience nursing wins award for excellence

The Neuro’s ICU Nursing Team are the winners of the 2019 Evelyn Malowany Award for Clinical Practice

The Neuro’s ICU Nursing Team are the winners of the 2019 Evelyn Malowany Award for Clinical Practice. Despite a constant influx and high turnover of patients, the nursing team delivers exemplary individualized, family-centered care and goes above and beyond to meet the needs of patients and families in crisis.

The Neuro ICU nursing team cares for patients experiencing significant neurological illness, a post anesthesia care unit where the team recovers post-op neurosurgical patients, and the receiving area, an emergency department where the team admits stroke patients and receives patients for consultations with the neurology and neurosurgery services. Supporting patients who are experiencing uncertainty in prognosis, caring for patients at the end of life, and advocating for families through the process of organ donation are among the many challenging situations that the Neuro ICU nursing team engages in on a daily basis.

The Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital is a McGill University research and teaching institute; delivering the highest quality of care to patients, as part of the Neuroscience Mission of the McGill University Health Centre. The Neuro is proud to be a Killam Institution, supported by the Killam Trusts.
