AAMC Nurse Wins Sustainability Award

| December 05, 2012, 03:50 PM | 0 Comments

Anne Arundel Medical CenterCharlotte Wallace, RN, a pediatric nurse and sustainability coordinator for Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC), was awarded the Nursing Leadership in Environmental Health Award from the Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (MD H2E). Five Maryland hospitals and one nurse were honored for their environmental health achievements with awards at MD H2E’s fifth annual Environmental Excellence in Health Care Conference.

“I am grateful for the support for this program at Anne Arundel Medical Center. I am encouraged by the progress in sustainability as a practice that reduces occupational and environmental hazards, maintains quality patient care and reduces costs,” said Wallace.

Wallace is one of only two nurses in the state to hold a sustainability position in a medical system. She has implemented many environmental initiatives at AAMC, including money-saving recycling programs, a farmers’ market and the addition of birthing classes to help expecting parents implement environmentally friendly practices in the home.

“Charlotte’s work in initiating and implementing green-friendly, waste and toxin reduction programs are truly leading edge approaches to sustaining environmentally healthy hospitals,” said Joan Plisko, PhD, technical director of Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (MD H2E).

The MD H2E Nursing Leadership in Environmental Health Award is given annually to a nurse in Maryland who displays leadership and exemplifies excellence in environmental health and sustainability in health care.
