Guthrie Corning Hospital is pleased to announce the 2015 recipient of the Lafollette McInnis ICU Service Award. Angie Burlew, RN, of Big Flats, NY was given the award after being nominated by her peers in the Intensive Care Unit at Guthrie Corning Hospital.
The distinction, a service award which has been presented annually since 1988, honors Intensive Care Unit nurses at the hospital "for their professional and personal nurture”. The award was created as part of an endowment fund for ICU personnel set aside by the Lafollette family after their mother received care from the hospital. The fund supports the further education of each of its recipients.
Angie Burlew was nominated by her peers for her compassionate care and her professional approach with both patients and their families. She was highlighted as being ‘inspirational to work with’ and for her support of families in distress.
