Mary Kisicki, BSN, RN
Mary is an emergency department registered nurse at CHI Health Bergan Mercy. She has been instrumental in the development and implementation of an award winning chest pain center and emergency medical services program. As the coordinator of these programs, she has focused on the transitions of care across the continuum from the community, field, emergency department, inpatient setting and back into the community. Mary coordinates learning experiences at CHI Health Bergan Mercy, across the CHI Health system, and in the field with emergency medical services (EMS) staff. Along with learning experiences, she helps to develop the policies, procedures, algorithms, order sets, process improvements, and evidence based guidelines to teach and improve the care of the patients. Mary coordinates the ride along program with EMS and emergency department personnel. She works directly with the EMS instructors to coordinate clinical rotations for the students in the emergency department, labor and delivery, and the ICU. Mary is a faith community parish nurse. She has volunteered her time to provide nursing care in home settings, to transport parishioners to physician appointments, to hold blood pressure screenings and to check AED devices in the parish. Mary leads “living will” classes and other evidence based classes developed by Stanford University three times each year. Mary is a board member of the EMS Educational Advisory board. Mary has traveled to Guatemala for nursing mission work. There, she assisted with the installation of water filtration systems to small communities in the mountains, provided health examinations, taught children how to brush their teeth, painted schools, and organized and distributed school and medical supplies. She participated in Haitian disaster relief efforts through the Institute for Latin American Concern. Mary promotes nursing in a positive light by leading, promoting change, mentoring others, and performing selfless acts of service.
