Comments from La Crosse Area

Hi Diane,
The GI in-service that you invited us all to at the end of March on “Malignant Colorectal Obstruction” by Boston Scientific during GI Nurses and Associate week was great.
I had a good time, a very nice meal and information/prizes. I think all staff that came had a good time and I just wanted to say thank you again for inviting the VMH gang.
You do a wonderful job, keep up the good work!

Gundersen Healthcare, Mayo Clinic Healthcare, Tomah Memorial, Tri-County Whitehall, Vernon Memorial, Richland Center Hospital and Prairie du Chien Memorial Hospital GI staff were each given the GI Procedure Pocket Guide and candy or cake.

Memberships to SGNA/WSGNA were also given away and the lucky recipients are Michelle Seichter, RN and Nicole Christianson, Tech, at Gundersen Healthcare; and Judy Ginther, LPN, at Mayo Clinic Healthcare. Congratulations to all of you and we look forward to your involvement in WSGNA-SGNA!
