MLKCH Nurse Manager Featured in Publication

mlkch-nurse-managerCongratulations to our own Andrew Ausland who we spotted on the cover of Working Nurse magazine for its feature, Men in Nursing 2015. Andrew is the nurse manager of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital’s Emergency Department.

In the interview, Andrew cites the importance of state-of-the-art technology in his work at MLKCH: “When we do an EKG, that rhythm reading can automatically flow right into the patient’s chart for the physician to see in real time.” These and other innovations support the work of everyone delivering quality care in the hospital’s Emergency Department.

“The article is such an honor. But the real impact is going to be the attention it draws to the incredible work of the entire staff at the new hospital. I’m proud to be part of it.” —Andrew Ausland

Our favorite part of the interview, however, is when Andrew talks about his happiest day on the job: the day he learned a former patient’s grandson was named after him.
