NANN Love What You Do - logo The National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) established this important holiday for R.N.s caring for the tiniest and most vulnerable patients over a decade ago: and now in its 13th year, Neonatal Nurses Day has chosen this year’s  theme as: “Love What You Do” Celebrate National Neonatal Nurses Day 2013 on Sunday, September 15. Knowing that NICU and PICU nurses are in such high demand is a bonus in jobs that are, in and of themselves, their own reward. Here, three neonatal nurses from the American Traveler team offer their inspiring stories, a peek at travel nurse housing, and rave reviews about their healthcare employers.

Read About Hand Hygiene Technology Here According to the CDC, 1 in every 20 U.S. patients contracts a Hospital-Acquired Infection each year—or, as it’s known by healthcare officials—HAI.  A serious problem in American healthcare facilities that range from surgical centers, ambulatory clinics, long-term care facilities and hospitals alike, HAIs cause an estimated 1.7 million infections each year and 99,000 fatalities. Thankfully, hospitals are aware and employing high tech solutions to bring these numbers down. Companies like Biovigil have created monitoring systems that remind hospital staff to sanitize and chart high and low compliance areas. Interested R.N.s can watch the Biovigil solution demonstration on the YouTube video below. How it works  The R.N. wears a badge linked to the hospital computer database; every time the nurse enters or exits a room, the badge blinks red, giving hospital staff approximately 40 seconds to sanitize their hands. Once that’s done, the R.N. places hands close to the badge and rubbing alcohol is detected, giving them a green light to treat the patient.  Non-compliance sounds an alarm. Everything is recorded electronically, with the eventual goal of raising hand hygiene compliance into the 90th percentiles. Some hospitals have already met this goal, dropping HAIs at Miami Children's Hospital [+]

Meet Cindy Burbatt, R.N. and her Pets American Traveler had the pleasure of checking in with a new member of our travel nursing staff, Cindy Burbatt, R.N. who shared some of the details of her first travel nurse job in Kansas City, Missouri. We talked with Cindy on the eve of her birthday. She was full of excitement for the road trip planned the following morning, departing from North Carolina en route to the heart of the Midwest. As the mother of three grown children, Cindy decided it was the right time to change up her 16-year background as a permanent staff telemetry/med surge nurse by accepting a travel nurse job in America’s heartland. While the truck she drives may not be anything that unusual for a R.N. moving to Kansas City, one standout detail is the 17ft. long trailer attached. It accommodates her longstanding and beloved pets, George and Ash; these are Cindy’s horses, and during the car trip to Missouri they’ll be staying in farms sprinkled throughout various states—places Cindy found through an online network called Horse Motel. When they arrive in Kansas City, Cindy will take up residence in a townhome, compliments of American Traveler’s private housing arrangement. George [+]
