President's Message

Your vote counts for National Candidates. AORN voting for the 2021— 2022 year is fast approaching. Use all of the resources to view the candidate’s platforms. In December the candidates’ Bio’s and election statements will be posted in the Journal. You will be able to post questions for the candidates on the website. Inside AORN website there is a page titled Voting Matters as a resource. You are also invited to have a virtual introduction with candidates at your monthly meetings. The candidate’s speech’s virtually have not been announced yet. I will give you information as I receive it. The candidates will be given the opportunity to virtually campaign for themselves. AORN is allowing each of the to create a Short Eye movie with their goals and platforms if they are elected. Voting will be at the March and April Chapter meetings via a computer. You must have your AORN membership number in order to vote. Voting opens March 22 online and ends April 23rd at midnight mountain time. Voting numbers will be part of the CAS for your chapter in 2021. Also, for our size chapter if we have the most percentage of voters we will win a free expo registration. Locally our nominating committee and chair Carrie will be looking for candidates for our own chapter. Step out of your comfort zone and volunteer to serve next year.

Our December social and Holiday Party will be at Painting with a twist in Metairie.

Please contact me if you are interested. 39.00 for 2 hours of fun. Respectively, Judy Montello, BSHCA, RN, CNOR

Legislative Report by 

Nathalie Walker, MBA, RN, CNOR

News from American College of Surgeons Association of periOperative Nurses American Society of Anesthesiologists For Immediate Release:

Three national health care organizations call for centralized coordinated governmental action during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

 

CHICAGO (November 24, 2020): Centralized coordinated governmental action is critical during the resurgence of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), according to three national health care organizations In a joint letter sent November 23 to federal government leaders by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN), and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), the three organizations call upon the federal government “to act collectively and quickly in support of hospitals and health care providers as they continue to struggle in response to the ongoing pandemic.”

 

The letter highlights three areas of focus in its call to support health care providers, COVID-19 patients, and their families:

 

• health care worker well-being and staffing issues • federally coordinated deployment of supplies medications and vital equipment

 

• increased communication and vaccine distribution plan transparency
