Jankowski, A.P.R.N., B.C., M.S.N, C.W.O.C.N., of Beth Israel Medical Center, New York, New York, has been named the first Nurse Safety Scholar-in-Residence, a role launched this year by Joint Commission Resources (JCR) and Hill-Rom (NYSE: HRC). JCR is a not-for-profit affiliate of The Joint Commission. Hill-Rom is a global medical technology company.
