Sue Lane Wins 2019 Board of Trustees Election
Congrats to Sue Medley-Lane, RN, CCHP-A, who emerged at the top of a field of five candidates for the open seat on the CCHP board of trustees. Lane is the corporate infection prevention and control coordinator for Centurion and is based in Florida.
Her three-year term will begin during the CCHP board meeting, Oct. 13 at the National Conference on Correctional Health Care. The board of trustees is responsible for all aspects of governing the CCHP program, including examination content, scoring and evaluation, as well as awarding of CCHP and specialty certifications to successful candidates.
Lane's candidate statement was as follows:
"As a registered nurse with experience in healthcare for over 40 years, over 22 years in correctional healthcare (from intake to administration), and 30 years of infection prevention and control. I have developed policies and procedures, and specific infection control programs, training, and management. My current position is the corporate infection and prevention coordinator overseeing multiple programs. In promoting understanding of the correctional healthcare, I present at national conferences, trainings, and contribute to publications. I represent correctional healthcare in multiple committees, task forces, and currently serve as a NCCHC lead surveyor, and chairman for ACHP. I am advocate for specialty certification, and want to see us continue to progress with additional certification for correctional positions, provide current and ongoing updates, and maintaining the integrity of this program. I look forward to the future of this program and want to be a part of making this specialty recognized by healthcare peers."
