Employee of the Month: July 2017

Colleen Cabral, BSN, RN, CRN, Cardiac and Endovascular Center


Colleen’s expertise in patient care can be seen every day in her work. Her excellence as a clinician and efforts to promote a positive environment set the bar high, both in the Cardiac and Endovascular Center at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and throughout the hospital. She not only encourages others to perform to the best of their abilities, she goes out of her way to support her colleagues to achieve the highest quality care.

Colleen created a unique way to share her knowledge by producing nursing resource books for the department. She revised in detail the Cardiac Emergency Handbook, which outlines all emergency medicines that may be used during care of a patient with acute heart attack. She also created a Cardiac Resource Book that lists all procedures and includes set up of equipment, indications, theory, and nursing responsibilities. She even added photos. Colleen put time and thoughtful attention into creating these educational tools in addition to her regular responsibilities. These resources are invaluable for new staff and those who may need a refresher in a certain procedure.

Colleen is also an approachable and cooperative colleague who is focused on supporting others to collectively deliver the best patient care. She collaborates with inpatient nursing staff to help educate them in cardiac and endovascular procedures as needed. She is not only an asset to her department, but to the hospital as a whole. She truly puts her heart into caring for our patients’ hearts.
