MSCE 2017 Golf Outing

When:

Saturday July 15, 2017 9:00 A.M.

Where:

The Links at Gateway
33290 Gateway Drive, Romulus, MI 48174
734-721-4100

Cost:

$50.00
$40.00 Students


Includes:

18 holes of scramble format golf with a power cart and lunch at the turn. (After the ninth hole)
Scramble format golf is a great way for beginners to become involved with the game of golf. It consists of a four person team in a best ball scenario where all four players hit their tee shot, decide which of the four is the best shot, and all four players hit the team’s second shot from there. This continues until the ball is holed out or the score is at double par for each hole. If a team has less than four players, they will still play four shots with the players rotating who takes the extra shot.


Please RSVP HERE . Anyone who has not sent an RSVP by July 12th may not have a spot in the outing. There is a limited number of tee times available and I need to give the
course a count by the 12th.

Cash or credit cards only will be accepted the day of the event.
You do not need a full foursome to participate; just sign up and we can place you on a team. Please indicate if you will need rental clubs; they are available from the course in limited numbers.
Please arrive for sign in by 8:00 AM so we have time to get teams set up.


Also, if you are aware of anyone or any vendor who would be willing to help sponsor prizes for this outing, please have them contact Tom Brown at: thomasbrownmsce@gmail.com.


CDC Clean Hands Count Campaign promotion during HTM Week

 

Dear Colleagues and Biomedical Engineering Leaders,                                                                                                                                                                   

 I, along with many others, am disturbed and disappointed by the lack of meaningful progress in reducing the unacceptable amount of patient injuries and fatalities created by our healthcare system. Please refer to the attached Washington Post article reporting on the study Medical Error-the third leading cause of death in the US in the bmj in May 2016 by M.A. Makary and M. Daniel. 

 I am asking for your assistance in making what I hope will be a positive impact on the problem of hospital acquired infections by requesting that for Healthcare Technology Management Week, May 22-28, 2016, that you encourage your organization’s membership to share the attached material about the CDC’s Clean Hands Count campaign with the nurses, respiratory therapists, physicians and other clinicians in their hospitals.

By doing so, biomedical engineering professionals will demonstrate not only their awareness and concern about the problem of hospital acquired infections, and their commitment to be part of the solution by consistently cleaning their hands as they go about their routine service activities in patient care areas. They can also demonstrate their patient safety leadership by promoting the CDC’s national campaign to their colleagues.

 

I hope that you can join me in publicizing this important action to improve patient safety for our patients.

 

Respectfully,

 

Tom Bauld, Ph.D., CCE
