CPMC Hires RN to Fill Infection Control Position
Cabinet Peaks Medical Center is excited to announce Lacey Poirier, RN, BSN, has been hired as the Infection Prevention and Employee Health Nurse. Lacey has been a member of the nursing team at CPMC for 3 years.
Originally, Lacey earned an associate degree in Business Management and worked as a Service Manager in the banking industry. After 5 years in that profession, she decided it wasn't her true calling and made the decision to pursue healthcare instead.
She states, "I started my healthcare career as a floating CNA in a hospital setting while I attended nursing school. I completed the LPN program in 2015. I worked as an LPN in a surgical clinic in varying departments, including ENT, Urology, Neurosurgery, Dermatology, and Plastic Surgery. I continued my education while working full-time and completed the BSN program through Presentation College in Aberdeen, SD in 2018." Lacey then moved to Montana after receiving her BSN and began working on the Acute Care floor at Cabinet Peaks. "I hold my BLS, ACLS, PALS, and NRP certifications. I am excited to work as the Infection Prevention and Employee Health RN and help lead employee education."
When asked about her plans for her department at CPMC, Lacey said "COVID has been and will remain the hottest topic in education and infection control. Although, that will continue to be at the forefront I am hopeful that we can re-introduce educational opportunities outside of webinars and Zoom calls. It is important for staff to fine-tune skills and we hope to provide a renewed atmosphere for learning."
Lacey lives in Libby with her 11 year old daughter, Hailey, who "lights up my whole world. Her personality and spirit are infectious-ask anyone who knows her."
