RCNi Child Health Winner Drew McDonald

Last week the yearly RCNi awards, where individuals who have demonstrated exceptional work in their respective nursing fields are celebrated.

Drew McDonald from Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital was nominated and WON!!

Drew and his team have worked tirelessly on improving Sepsis recognition within our Emergency Department and has taken the work on to introduce it in our Paediatric acute medical assessment unit.

His tool has helped us quickly identify and recognise those children presenting at risk of significant sepsis and have triggered the use of antibiotics and fluids within 1 hour of their presentation.

Undoubtedly this has benefited many of our patients coming into the Emergency Department.

We just want to say well done Drew and the team!! Checkout the local news as I think there maybe an interview in the works….
