Boston (June 6, 2008) — The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary recently awarded Ann Goulette, R.N., a resident of Wakefield Mass., with the Norman Knight Clinical Practice Excellence Award.
Goulette has been with Mass. Eye and Ear for 18 years. She has worked in a number of the hospital’s clinical departments and has worked in Pediatrics for the past four years. Goulette serves on the Education Council and Professional Nurse Advisory Council.
“Ann’s positive attitude and professionalism, along with her enthusiasm, makes her a respected member of the pediatrics team and an asset to the nursing profession and Mass. Eye and Ear,” said Carol Covell, R.N., M.S., Executive Vice President of Patient Services.
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.
