CHEER CHAMPION of the week
Congratulations to CHEER CHAMPion of the Week, Kimberly Moore, RN, and Director of the Women’s Center for NMMC Gilmore-Amory! In her role as director, Kimberly maintains the Baby-Friendly hospital initiative and the MS Perinatal Quality Collaborative (MSPQC) bundles...
During the pandemic, NMMC Gilmore-Amory put many policies, such as visitor limitations, in place to help protect staff and patients. Though they only had one COVID positive mother deliver at their facility, Kimberly says the visitation restrictions “seems to have helped mothers the most” because “the mothers get rest and bond more with the newborn.” She has also led the charge as the Women’s Center staff have continue to uphold their BFHI practices, such as skin-to-skin and rooming-in.
