(April 11, 2018 – Sandusky, Ohio) Firelands Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that Alli Evert, BSN, RN, OCN, Charge Nurse in the University Hospital Seidman Cancer Center at Firelands, has been selected as the April Beacon of Light Award winner. Alli has been employed at Firelands for 7 years.
The Firelands Beacon of Light is a program developed to recognize team members who exemplify and exhibit the values of Firelands Regional Medical Center in the form of exceptional Attitude, Commitment and Enthusiasm (ACE). The award goes to individuals who ACE it every day for patients and coworkers.
Alli’s nomination reflected this dedication. “Alli is an incredible leader. Her consistent positive attitude allows her to excel in supporting her team. Her leadership example is evident daily in her willingness to “jump in” during staffing crunches and increased patient volume. Alli supports staff/team members with her “can do” attitude.”
“Alli is highly committed to her nursing profession, the patient experience, and Firelands as a whole. She sees education as a key element to the success of all employees, patients, and their families. Alli is not only focused on ensuring the Cancer Center staff and patients are educated, but also all staff and patients throughout Firelands. She has worked one-on-one with some of the Cleveland Clinic oncologists on staff to ensure chemotherapy is ordered safely and effectively on the inpatient unit or during special interventional procedures. Additionally, Alli has met with Information Services, Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Pathology, and Pharmacy team members to streamline workflows and communication with the global changes in overall processes with the new system.”
“The multidisciplinary approach to patient-centered care is innate in Alli’s nursing talent,” the nomination continues. “Her enthusiasm is contagious! Her dedication to evidence-based practice is reflected in her passion to educate her fellow coworkers. She ensures the inpatient and outpatient nursing team provides consistent, safe, and effective chemotherapy administration by preparing diligently for each class she teaches and the competencies she performs. She assures the nurses can call her anytime if they need help. Alli is well-read and shares her wisdom at department meetings and chart rounds. When asked, she agreed to speak at a Nursing Forum in Boston on patient safety. She is a strong proponent of nursing professional development.”
Outside of work, Alli is a member of the Oncology Nursing Society, actively putting its evidence into practice. She has participated yearly in the Sandusky area Relay for Life. She is also an active member of the Northern Ohio Hemophilia Foundation, meeting monthly with the Cleveland members.
