Stormont Vail Nurses Represent at Magnetizing KC

A group of 53 Stormont Vail Health nurses represented our team this week at the Magnetizing KC symposium. They were able to learn and share best practices of nursing excellence with other Greater Kansas City Magnet nursing professionals.

Ashley Florez, MSN, RN, and Yvonne Hartner, BSN, RN, presented during the first session about Stormont Vail’s Enhanced Primary Care program. Other presentations offered insights into nursing innovations, new knowledge and Magnet practices.

Stormont Vail also had two poster presentations at the symposium, which highlight Magnet professionals who have developed new programs, created innovative techniques, or remastered existing processes to achieve nursing excellence. Jordan Christenson, BSN, RN, and Chelsey Rake, BSN, RN, displayed a poster on Discharge Lounge Workflow Improvement. Kim Dick, BSN, RN, and Melinda Theis, MSN, RNC-OB, showcased the Enhanced Recovery After Caesarian Section practice.

Stormont Vail is proud to be recognized as a Magnet organization. It takes our entire team to achieve this distinction of excellence and quality.

Sports Injury Clinic on Saturdays – Sept. 3 through Oct. 29

Stormont Vail Health is once again hosting our Sports Injury Clinic to area high school athletes. This year, we are opening our doors to all schools within our community.

A sports medicine physician and an athletic trainer will see athletes who may need immediate care for an injury sustained during a game, but didn’t need to visit the Emergency Department.

The clinic will be from 8 – 10 a.m. every Saturday from Sept. 3 – Oct. 29 at Cotton O’Neil Kanza Park, 2660 S.W. Third St., in Topeka. No appointment is necessary. Please enter through the west doors and proceed to the second floor.

Injuries appropriate for the clinic include:

  • Potential fractures
  • Torn ligaments including ACL
  • Dislocations

Clinic visits will be billed to student athlete’s insurance and a specialty office visit co-pay will be assessed. Learn more:
