Excellence in Evidence Based Practice
Mary works in Surgical Day Care at the main campus and has worked at Lowell General for 20 years.
She successfully researched and implemented a holistic approach to treating our patients for nausea and vomiting, reducing the need for additional medications and sending the patients home in a timely fashion. The primary purpose of Mary’s research was to determine the effectiveness of aromatherapy compared to standards care for postoperative nausea and vomiting. Out of all the patients that experienced nausea and vomiting, treatment was found to be effective and patients were able to be discharged in time. This treatment is now being implemented at our Cancer Center.
In her spare time, Mary enjoys vacations with her husband and friends and spending time with her nine grandchildren.
