Spotlights is a series in which the Department of Pediatrics highlights the special work, awards and honors of our faculty, staff, students, residents and fellows. Join us in congratulating our dedicated team!
Last week, a new hero-recognition program was launched to celebrate Healthcare Quality Week. The inaugural honoree is Dory Collette, RN, CCRN, who works closely with Keith Kerr, M.D., in her role as a quality and patient safety coordinator.
Her 41 years of nursing started at the “Old Brack” in the ICU. At Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, she became the PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) program coordinator, which blossomed into a full-time quality and patient safety coordinator role. She teaches all new DCMC associates and Dell Medical School pediatric hospital physicians to adopt safety behaviors by providing error-prevention training and coaching.
