RTs Among Clinicians Named “Midlanders of the Year”

 Published: January 5, 2015

By: AARC Staff

We’re all familiar with Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.” Every year the editors of the Omaha, NE, World-Herald do a similar feature story on the person or persons who made the biggest impact on their community in the past 12 months, and in 2014 the honor went to the brave clinicians at the Nebraska Medical Center who make up the center’s Biocontainment Unit.

In The Nebraska Ebola Team, the newspaper officially honors “22 nurses, 10 lab workers, 6 respiratory therapists, 5 care techs and dozens of physicians” for the role they played in caring for three Ebola patients last fall.

Among the AARC members in the group: Jean Bellinghausen, RRT, Susan Denny, RRT, Frank Freihaut, RRT, AE-C, and Deb Ray, BS, RRT.
