It is my honor to serve as this year’s President of NJ-ACEP.   I want to thank Mark Rosenberg for an outstanding year and congratulate him on his election to the National ACEP Board of Directors.  I have a tough act to follow. Please allow me to introduce myself to those who may not know me.

Aside from medical school (Chicago) and residency (Philadelphia), I have spent most of my life in New Jersey.  I completed my residency training at Jefferson in 1995 and spent the next 6 years practicing in Philadelphia.   During the early years of my career I had the opportunity to moonlight at many of New Jersey’s Emergency Departments from single coverage 24 hour shifts in Sussex County to Atlantic City’s city hospital and everything in between. This allowed be to experience multiple clinical settings and group structures.  I moved from my fulltime position in Philadelphia to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick in 2001.

NJ-ACEP Emergency Department Violence Initiative

 

Violence against healthcare providers is a growing trend in our emergency departments. Many of us have accepted it as a normal part of the job; part of our culture like running a code. However, just as we are advocates for our patients' health and safety, so must we be advocates for our own safety as healthcare professionals.  NJ-ACEP is here to be your advocate, and has embarked on a mission for Emergency Department Safety. 

NJ-ACEP needs to hear your voice against workplace violence. As part of a state wide campaign to change the culture of violence, we need your personal stories of violent encounters in the emergency department. These stories will be featured anonymously in New Jersey news reports. Please contact NJ-ACEP with your interest: info@njacep.org
