Kowall receives award for promoting health care safety

LANSING—State Sen. Mike Kowall, R-White Lake, received the 2014 Healthcare Worker Safety Award on Wednesday from the International Sharps Injury Prevention Society and StaffAndPatientSafety.org for his work promoting staff and patient safety in health care.

“It is a great honor to receive this award,” said Kowall, R-White Lake. “Health care workers face many occupational risks as they care for the sick and injured. These organizations are to be commended for their work in promoting safety score audits and other safety precautions. I’m glad I can do my part to promote a culture of safety for health care workers and patients.”
