Stories in the 01/12/18 edition of MGH Hotline

Each week, MGH Hotline reports important news within the Massachusetts General Hospital community featuring employees and initiatives that focus on bettering the future of clinical care, research and training.

  • CareZONE in the end zone

    It’s not every day that Robert Kraft equates someone to the five-time Super Bowl champion quarterback of the New England Patriots. But on Jan. 9, the team’s owner did just that, dubbing The Kraft Center for Community Health’s executive director Elsie Taveras, MD, as “the center’s Tom Brady.”

  • Leaders address IV fluid bag shortage

    When Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico last September, it caused widespread devastation – leaving homes destroyed, businesses leveled and manufacturing plants in ruins. When the facility that produced 40 percent of the nation’s IV fluid bags was rendered inoperable, it set into motion a shortage that has impacted hospitals throughout the United States.

  • Sacking the flu

    Just in time for the New England Patriots first playoff game, Michelle Pirri, RN, of the Emergency Department, was selected as the lucky winner of an autographed Rob Gronkowski jersey. Her name was drawn from all employees who received their flu shot or documented their declination in PeopleSoft by Dec. 8, 2017.

  • Hard at work

    Not even a “bomb cyclone” can keep the MGH from providing excellent patient care. On Jan. 4, while winter storm Grayson dumped a foot of snow in Boston, MGH Buildings and Grounds staff worked to ensure sidewalks were clear and salted, ambassadors welcomed patients, and staff – canines included – continued to provide the best care. In other words, it was business as usual at the MGH.

  • Revere Youth Zone gets a visit from rock royalty

    Grammy-nominated producer, composer and world-renowned guitarist Jon Butcher visited the MGH Revere Youth Zone Dec. 5, 2017 as part of the Career Spotlight series. Butcher – widely considered one of Boston’s rock royalty – inspired the students with his amazing talent.
