Suburban achieved Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) on May 16—watch the Facebook Live video—and our Magnet journey didn’t end there!
Last week, LeighAnn Sidone, Suburban’s Chief Nursing Officer, received the official Magnet Recognition plaque, certificate and pin from ANCC (pictured). In October, our nurse leaders will take the stage at the ANCC National Magnet Conference to share Suburban’s path to Magnet designation with thousands of nurses from across the country.

HERO is a reporting system for unsafe conditions, near misses and events that cause patient and/or employee harm. As part of Suburban’s ongoing focus on ensuring the safety of staff, patients and visitors, HERO reports are an essential way to track, report and increase visibility into current and potential incidents in our hospital.
If you experience abusive behavior, threats or violence, please enter a HERO and include the name of the patient and/or family member or visitor in the event description, as well as contacting the Nursing Supervisor. These reports are reviewed daily and will help us follow up with employees and managers to track and address patterns of behavior more quickly.
To access HERO, login to my.jh.edu. Hover over the “Clinical” icon from the left-hand rail and select “HERO.” Click on the Safety/Security tile to enter a workplace violence issue.
Contact Allison Beyer, Director of Patient Safety, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about HERO reports.
