Proud to be part of the MUHC

Maxime Boutin-Caron, Assistant Nurse Manager of 4 Surgery at the MNH

“As assistant nurse manager we do a lot of problem solving,” says Maxime Boutin-Caron, assistant nurse manager of 4 Surgery at the Montreal Neurological Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre (MNH-MUHC). “So whether there is a system issue or it has to do with a complicated discharge planning, I am very proud when I manage to get people together to find a solution that benefits the patients and their families.”

Over the last year, Maxime’s team has also gone through many changes. Not only did they prepare for the Royal Victoria Hospital move to the Glen site, therefore leaving the MNH-MUHC with services they had to takeover to maintain excellent patient and family care, they also changed from a neurological surgical unit to an acute stroke unit.

“Throughout, everyone worked so hard to make the transitions possible, from the nurses, physio- and occupational therapists, to the PABs, unit coordinators, nutritionists, doctors—everybody was amazing,” says Maxime. “And not even a year later, we have reached some of our performance goals, and we got our tertiary stroke care accreditation from the Ministry of Health. Teamwork—I think that is what I am most proud of!”
