The Modern Nurse
April 26, 2017

As the globalization of the world economy makes international travel easier and more commonplace, it also contributes to the growing threat of global pandemics like Ebola, Zika and influenza. To help prevent the spread of infectious diseases, healthcare institutions often rely on infection preventionists (IPs) like Margaret “Peg” Pettis, RN, MPA, CIC, the manager of Rochester General Hospital’s Infection Prevention Department in Rochester, N.Y. We spoke to Peg about her experience as an infection control nurse and why she is so passionate about her chosen career.

Kidney transplant may mean greater freedom, reduced cost, more energy and a less strict diet than patients on dialysis. Nurses play an integral role in helping patients go through the transplant process and helping match live donors with patients in need of a kidney.
