This week’s ‘Nurse of the Week’ is Jane Palermo. After a man on her flight went into cardiac arrest, Nurse Jane, an RN Case Manager at UMass Memorial Medical Center, performed CPR and applied a defibrillator until the man began to breathe on his own. As a Case Manager at her hospital, she helps organize and coordinate resources and services in response to individual health care needs and this situation was no different. We salute this Shrewsbury resident for applying some of the key competencies of her role as a case manager in a very unfamiliar setting.

“Her actions 30,000 feet above the ground comes as no surprise to the people working with her on a daily basis.”

– Patrick Muldoon, President of UMass Memorial Medical Center
