Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital’s I CARE Award recognizes staff members from all areas of the hospital who go above and beyond their regular job responsibilities to make BWFH a great place to work and receive care. 6 North staff nurse Chris Burkard, RN, was a recent recipient of an I CARE Award.
Burkard was nominated for his I CARE Award by 6 North Nurse Director Suzelle Saint-Eloi, MS, RN. In her nomination letter, Saint-Eloi wrote:
Chris is a strong clinician. He is quiet and engages with his patients and peers. Chris has genuinely emerged as a leader and advocate for patients and staff on 6 North. For example, Chris took on the Charge role and simultaneously orienting new staff. He also advocated for ensuring adequate resources and supports for the new staff on the night shift. This has made a positive difference and we would like to acknowledge Chris and say Thank You for extending himself and demonstrating the I CARE Standards.
