Christie Fotopoulos, RN, CNOR

Surgical Services - Evening Charge Nurse (4 years)

"The technology advances in the operating rooms at Lowell General are exciting. In my four years as an OR nurse here I've seen the positive impact they have on the delivery of care and for our patients."

Christie Fotopolous G100After careful consideration, Christie Fotopoulos chose Lowell General Hospital to begin her career as a surgical nurse in 2005. She discovered that the hospital's commitments to technology and nursing have made it a great place to work. In her role as charge nurse and moving throughout all surgical specialties she sees the impact this has on patient care and its delivery.

A full shift to an electronic medical records system improved access for physicians and staff, recent investments in a robotic surgical platform, integrated surgical suites and new laparoscopic equipment expanded surgical options, and continuous training and certification for staff enhance clinical skills for her and her co-workers.

Being part of unit-based councils and other nursing-led improvement committees, Christie finds that she has a real impact on streamlining processes, and delivering better care. She is proud to be part of a tight-knit team that works together to provide the best care for every patient.

Lowell General is where Christie chooses to make a difference.
