Rebecca Mack MS, RN, NEA-BC presents winning abstract as Best Practice
The New York Organization of Nurse Executives and Leaders (NYONEL) has selected “Implementation of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Screening and Protocol in Perioperative Services” submitted by Rebecca Mack, MS, RN, NEA-BC as a winning best practice.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a complete or partial blockage of the upper airway during sleep. OSA is of particular concern in the perioperative period due to the use of anesthetic agents and opiates. These drugs relax the muscles potentiating the OSA symptoms.

A multidisciplinary team at Geneva General Hospital developed a screening tool to identify patients at risk for OSA, and developed a care protocol for those at high risk or with a previously known diagnosis of OSA.

The abstract and a poster outlining the team’s work was presented at the March 29-31, 2015 annual meeting annual meeting themed: “Nursing Leadership: Transforming Care for the New Health Care Environment” in Tarrytown, NY.

Mack, administrative director of surgical services for Finger Lakes Health, earned a Master’s degree in Nursing Administration from St. John Fisher College and a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from Valparaiso University. She is a member of the Board of Directors of New York State Organization of Nurse Executives and Leaders, and is President of Finger Lakes Organization of Nurse Executives and Leaders. In 2004, Mack earned her certification an advanced nurse executive through the American Nurses Credentialing Center
