As trauma program manager in the trauma department at the University of South Alabama Medical Center, Winnie Njatha, RN, MSN, CCRN enjoys being part of a team dedicated to good patient outcomes.
“It's great to work with people who go the extra mile for their patients and this is exemplified not only in the trauma department but in the hospital in general,” she said.
In her role as trauma program manager, Njatha monitors clinical processes and outcomes and system issues related to the quality of care provided to trauma patients. In addition, she develops and implements community-based injury prevention outreach programs and collaborates with and assists the trauma medical director, among her many duties.
In September, she and other staff members spent part of their Saturday taking part in a community outreach during Crichton Day. The USA Medical Center trauma program staff members shared information about services provided at the hospital to those who live nearby.
Njatha was promoted to the position of trauma program manager last September after serving as a staff nurse with the Surgical Trauma Intensive Care Unit (STICU) for seven years. She received a Bachelor of Science from the University of South Alabama and a Master of Science degree from the University of Mobile. She is a member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses and Sigma Theta Tau International.
