Boston (June 6, 2008) — Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary nurse Marylou Butler, R.N., a resident of Billerica, Mass., was recently awarded the Norman Knight Clinical Practice Excellence Award.
Butler has been an employee at Mass. Eye and Ear for 39 years has been a clinical leader in the Emergency Department for the past three years. In her current position, she coordinates the clinical aspects of the emergency department and oversees the day-to-day tasks of nurses and nurse assistants. Before joining Mass.

The Norman Knight Clinical Practice Excellence Award was established in honor of long-time Mass. Eye and Ear friend Norman Knight. Two awards were established in his name to recognize achievements by nurses in two critical areas- clinical practice and leadership. Among his contributions is the Norman Knight Hyperbaric Medicine Center, the only hospital-based center in the Boston area that provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
