MaryCaruso2Mary Caruso, RN, BSN, CIC, infection preventionist at Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County, was recently named one of 14 national award winners by The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).

Caruso is set to receive the organization’s Chapter Leadership Award, which recognizes members’ outstanding achievements in going above and beyond the call of duty. The award will be presented to Caruso on June 26 at the APIC’s annual conference in Nashville, TN.

“Mary has worked in Infection Prevention for 21 years and has experience across the spectrum of patient care,” stated Caruso’s nomination letter. “Prior to entering the infection prevention field, Mary served as an administrative supervisor, staff RN and community educator. We are privileged to have a colleague devoted to the advancement of our profession. We benefit from her knowledge and dedication.”

In its award notification letter to Lourdes, the organization stated, “APIC believes Mary exhibits superior leadership and a volunteer spirit. We are happy to credit her work with this award.”

The APIC  was founded in 1972 by a pioneering group of infection control nurses who recognized the need for an organized approach to preventing healthcare-associated infections. APIC is now a multidisciplinary organization which serves more than 15,000 members in 60 countries. Its mission  is to create a safer world through the prevention of infection.
