Letter from the President Peggy Kish RN,
Clinical Services Director for Zandex Health Care

ENERGIZE AND STRATEGIZE

The 23rd annual ODONA convention came to an end on Tuesday February 28th with a successful strategic learning experience. I would like to take the time to thank all of the board members who have worked very hard in making everything so successful! Secondly I would like to thank all of the speakers and members of the panel presentation for adding to this great event. A special thank you to all the patron members and sponsors; your assistance is truly valued.

This was an exceptional continuing educational experience with approximately 85 attendees, 50 vendors, and 9 speakers including the panel presentation. The topics included: Increasing Case Mix, Managing Budgets in Long Tern Care, Quality Add on Points, Reducing Hospital Readmissions, QIS Process, Dietary Recommendations for the Geriatric Populations, Drug Laws/Survey Issues with Medication, and Advancing Excellence. The above topics totaled 11 CEU’s. So much great information!!

Congratulations to our 2012 Scholarship Recipients!!! Kimberly Massy who works at Adams Lance Care Center in Zanesville, Ohio received a $1000 scholarship to advance from a RN to a BSN. Stacy Coss who works at Beckett House in New Concord, Ohio received a $750 scholarship to advance from a LPN to a RN. Jennifer Winnbeberg who works at Autumn Healthcare in Somerset, Ohio also received a $750 scholarship to advance from a LPN to a RN.
Reminder: Applications for next year available on line soon.


Upon review of all the comments and in addition to speaking with many of the vendors we are already planning on making revisions for the 2013 year. We have booked Embassy Suites for March 24th, 25th, & 26th.. Recommendations for speakers, topics, and/or any other idea please email me at kish900@hotmail.com. Hope to see you there!!
