Alyssa brings a wealth of experience working with infants/children in all of our ICUs here at CHOP.  In October 2017, she chose to focus only in the CICU, to care for children with congenital and acquired heart disease. During this time, she became the CICU Nurse Mentor Program Coordinator where she partnered with the Education Nurse Specialist to resource and support new CICU nurses.

Alyssa developed a passion to work with teams on preventing harm to our patients.  She became the HAPI, CLABSI, PIVIE and SSI Team Lead & Champion for the CICU. In 2019, she partnered with the hospital vascular access team to round on all patients in the CICU to ensure that the standard of care was maintained to prevent any harm related to vascular access. A potential harm that is not talked about much is ICU delirium for patients. She became a member of this work group to educate staff on the CAPD ICU delirium scale and proper utilization.
