CROWN POINT, Indiana - Giovanni Infusino, MD, a Franciscan Physician Network board-certified doctor in internal medicine and pulmonary disease, was named the 2018 St. Raphael Award recipient on November 14.
The St. Raphael Award recognizes outstanding dedication, teamwork and respect for the nursing staff at Franciscan Health Crown Point and commitment to the mission and values of Franciscan Alliance.
In presenting the award with Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer Dawn Scott, Registered Nurse Abigail Stanula said, "He always makes sure that our entire staff feels like we are really working as a team. … Dr. Infusino is always available to educate us, to talk us through what's going on."
Others who work with Dr. Infusino say he sets a great example of how physicians and nursing staff should work together and goes out of his way to consult at the bedside and in the department, rather than just communicating via notes in the patient's chart.
