Sandra Dougal is on the cover of the Department of Nursing 2019/2020 report

The Department of Nursing Report for 2019 and 2020 is now available.

With a theme of “Unwavering Compassion & Unparalleled Care,” the report highlights stories about nurses’ contributions to patient care, education, research, innovation and community outreach over two years.

“Although our environment and circumstances were different between 2019 and 2020, there were two constants: nurses’ compassion for their patients and colleagues, and the high-quality care they delivered across all settings in collaboration with colleagues,” wrote

Madelyn Pearson, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, senior vice president of Clinical Services and chief nursing officer, in her welcome letter in the report. “As a result, we have dedicated this report to illuminating examples of the unwavering compassion and unparalleled care provided by Brigham nurses. We wish to thank all the nurses around the world for your courage, compassion and dedication to caring for those patients and loved ones during some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable.

Sandra Dougal, RN, is featured on the cover for the extraordinary compassionate care she provides to patients and loved ones in the Medical Intensive Care Unit.

Print copies are being distributed throughout the hospital, and the report is also available online.
