In an environment like a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), constant improvements and dedication to patient safety are essential to provide efficient, up-to-date care. Maureen Maurano, BSN, RN, NICU nurse manager at Children’s National in Washington, D.C., knows firsthand how important patient-focused care is and has implemented initiatives at the hospital that ensure top-level care for the smallest, most fragile patients.

Maureen has streamlined processes for team communication, introduced bar coding systems for medications, optimized safety protocols, initiated new patient-focused programs, and more, all in an effort to provide comprehensive care for babies and mothers.
