Peer group of Trauma Professionals choose

ECMC Trauma Nurse Linda Schwab for State-wide Recognition

BUFFALO, NEW YORK; December 18, 2007-The New York State (NYS) Chapter of the American Trauma Society recently recognized nurse Linda Schwab, MS, RN, Trauma Program Coordinator for Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) and the eight county Western New York region, as the 2007 Trauma Coordinator of Distinction for New York State.

The NYS American Trauma Society annually recognizes the most deserving Trauma Professionals for their commitment and pursuit of excellence in the area of trauma care in three categories, including: Trauma Director, Trauma Registrar, and Trauma Coordinator of Distinction. To choose award winners each year, the Society conducts a rigorous submission and selection process among members of the American Trauma Society and the NYS Trauma Advisory Committee. An awards program, held during the State Trauma Advisory Committee Meeting in Albany, is the culmination of the selection process. This year, the event took place on November 29th.

Linda Schwab has served in various clinical positions during her 26 years at ECMC. As Trauma Program Coordinator (2004-present), she works regionally and in collaboration with statewide committees to establish trends in the incidence of traumatic accidents and to implement research-based practice changes in trauma care and public health policy. She is extensively involved in outreach education for injury prevention. Prior to her current role, Schwab served ECMC as: Case Manager for Surgical Specialties (2000-2003), Trauma Intensive Care Nurse (1995-2000; 1981-89) and Nurse Clinician for the Burn Treatment Center (1989-95).

Linda Schwab has had direct and indirect impact on the quality of nursing care through her research activities, clinical publications, active involvement with the community, and numerous professional organization memberships. In recognition of outstanding contributions to the profession of Registered Nursing, Schwab was honored as a Western New York Nurse of Distinction (2004).

Linda Schwab earned her Master of Science in nursing (2004) and her Bachelor of Science in nursing (1981) degrees from D'Youville College.

Linda Schwab lives in Kenmore.

Since the early 1960s, ECMC has set trends in trauma and emergency care, developing practices, procedures and in some cases devices (such as the first crash cart) that have since become standards of care now implemented/utilized in hospitals across the nation and the globe. As Western New York's only Adult Regional Trauma Center, ECMC operates one of 43 trauma centers in New York State. ECMC has achieved the best trauma survival rate of all trauma centers in the State, according to a July 2006 report from the New York State Department of Health (www.health.state.ny.us). ECMC offers trauma and burn educational programs for professionals as well as the general public. For more information about ECMC trauma/burn services, call 716-898-3631 or log on to www.ecmc.edu.
