Nurses share lessons learned about face transplant surgery
Contributing to the evolution of New York University Langone Medical Center‘s (New York City) face transplant care protocol has been a remarkable journey for four nurses, who published a detailed article on nursing care at all stages of the procedure. Nicole Sweeney, MS, RN, CNOR, the medical center’s face transplant coordinator, said the manuscript is the first one to speak to the actual nursing care involved with face transplantation patients, especially in the perioperative setting. “[The article] is meant to help other institutions get their nursing care up and running for this procedure,” Sweeney said.
