Duke Heart Pulse – week ending February 5th 2023

Highlights of the week:

Heart Month is Here – Lots to Celebrate!

We hope the first week of February has been great for you so far – of course, it’s always a good week when our Blue Devils beat Carolina!

Thank you to all team members who joined us in wearing red on Friday for National Wear Red Day, a day where we join collectively with other organizations to increase awareness of heart disease – it’s still the leading cause of death in the U.S. We have received some great photos from teams so far – shown here are members of our HR support team and clinic 2F/2G. If you haven’t shared your pics with us yet, please do!

And… if you haven’t seen these yet, we’ve installed some new signs around DUH and Duke Clinics – congratulations to our faculty and staff members for your amazing work

Ours is one of the best teams at Duke Health and one of the finest Heart Centers in the world, thanks to each one of you. This is definitely worth celebrating!

Something else worth celebrating: quick response & a life saved.

During the Jan. 31 Duke Men’s Basketball game, members of the Duke Life Flight team were honored for their extraordinary care of a patient at the November 30 home game against Ohio State. At that game, the father of an Ohio State player suffered a massive heart attack in the stands. Thanks to the swift actions of the Duke Life Flight event medicine team in conjunction with Duke Athletics staff, he was quickly stabilized and transported to the DUH Emergency Department.

The patient underwent a life-saving procedure with our Duke Heart team and was admitted to the Cardiac ICU. Thanks to all those who responded that day, he is now back at home where he is expected to make a full recovery. He shared a special message for the medical teams that played a part in his care. It was played at Cameron on Tuesday evening. Please check it out here: https://duke.is/pdaxg.

Well done, everyone!


Ashley Barba Named Clinical Director for CT Surgery at DUH, Effective April 1

We are excited to share that Ashley Barba, Team Lead for our Cardiothoracic Surgery SDU APPs, will be serving in an expanded role and capacity effective April 1. Barba will continue with her team lead role and clinical practice, and will also serve as the Clinical Director for Cardiothoracic Surgery at DUH. In this expanded role, she will support quality improvement, Maestro related projects and enhancements, transitional care, and special projects aimed to further support our Cardiothoracic Surgery inpatient programs, patients and the surgical teams.

Barba is a tremendous provider and team leader and will be highly effective in this role as she partners with the local nursing teams and leaders, multidisciplinary operational teams and Heart Center leadership.

Please congratulate Ashley when you see her, and feel free to reach out to her as a resource around clinical care and workflows, quality initiatives, the STS registry, or operational challenges as you continue to provide world-class care to Duke Heart patients and families.

Congratulations, Ashley! Well deserved!


Carroll Earns Greenfield Women in Cardiology Award

Aubrie Carroll

Congratulations to Aubrie Carroll, MD, a resident in internal medicine at Duke, for being named the recipient of the Ruth Ann Greenfield Women in Cardiology Award! The award honors Dr. Ruth Ann Greenfield’s legacy at Duke.

The announcement was made by Duke electrophysiologist Don Hegland, MD who added, “This acknowledges Dr. Carroll’s many accomplishments as a Duke Internal Medicine Resident, and will support the great things she will do with her future in Cardiology.”

Such great news! Please congratulate Aubrie the next time you see her.






Kudos to 2F/2G & VAD Team

We received some terrific praise this week for our 2F/2G and VAD teams via Press Ganey Survey feedback. The patient/family member wrote:

Dora at pulmonary testing was very good, Ericka at blood draw was excellent as there are difficulties with drawing blood, finding veins. Frank was great for executing walking exercise, and Dr. Katz was amazing as usual. Vanessa provided us with a video for a weekly dressing for LVAD. Assisted in training with replacing the existing dressing. Great experience again today.”

Great work everyone!!!

TJC Update & Kudos to Heart Teams

The first of two weeks of the PDC’s triennial Joint Commission survey of clinics concluded on Friday. TJC was very complimentary and spoke favorably about facilities, processes, and staff throughout the PDC. So far, 42 of 59 clinics had no findings, which is great news — among them, Duke Cardiology of Raleigh, Duke Cardiology of Cary, and Duke Cardiology of Morrisville.

Duke Heart teams received the following kudos from the surveyors:

  • Duke Cardiology of Raleigh displayed great teamwork and work culture. Nurses Joan Senter, Emily Sweet and Eddie Scott are shining stars!
  • Sarah Curtis, HCA, and Annette Moore, Nurse Manager, Duke Cardiology of Cary are outstanding and have a good understanding of operations.
  • Stephen Robinson, MD of Duke Cardiology at Morrisville, received a ‘Leading Practice’ for low level disinfection of his stethoscope before and after patient care.
  • An external-to-Duke provider ordered a medication that a patient had an allergy to. After receiving a MyChart message from the patient, Michelle Blau of Duke Cardiology of Morrisville, thoroughly reviewed the chart and alerted the cardiologist of the issue. This was a great catch!

Well done and way to go, everyone!


Successful Recruitment Event for SDUs Held Wed., Feb. 1

We had a successful nurse recruitment event at the DMP and DUH on Wednesday, Feb. 1. Shown here are members of our nursing leadership team who met with applicants, answered questions and gave tours. Thanks to everyone who supported this event for our Adult Stepdown Units!  Our team engaged with 27 attendees and extended eight RN offers.

Great job!


Bova Departs CICU for MICU

Marina Bova was celebrated by her colleagues in the cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) this week on her last official day with us before starting a new role with Duke’s MICU team. Her team held a going away party for her on Tuesday, Jan. 31 – during her final night shift.

“I want to recognize the outstanding contribution that Marina Bova has made to the CICU, said Jason Katz, MD. “She was one of the pioneer CICU APPs who worked tirelessly and collaboratively to improve the care of our patients, to teach our trainees, and to create a culture of teamwork with the nursing staff and others.”

“Marina bravely tackled this role when little was known and she, along with others, helped make the new APP group a pivotal component of CICU care,” he added.

Marina’s dedication to the CICU and in her overall efforts in representing the skills of APPs will help to ensure that the CICU APPs will always be an integral part of the CICU team and mission.

“Though we will miss her terribly, we all appreciate what she has done for our patients and will eagerly anticipate how she will elevate the MICU moving forward,” Katz said.

Shown here are Bova along with several CICU team members, and cardiology fellows Andrew Andreae and Balim Senman (who provided the cake shown here!)

Congrats and good luck, Marina!


Barnes’ Story Featured as Part of DUHS Recruitment Effort

Our fabulous team member, Stephanie Barnes, Clinical Director for Advanced Heart Failure Services, shared her story recently with our Duke Health recruitment team and it’s now featured on our Duke Health careers page as part of overall recruitment efforts. Check it out here: https://duke.is/r2f88.

We agree with her: Duke is a great place to work and the best is yet to come!

Dress Like Dan Mark Day

We didn’t realize this was happening this week, but it did, and it was so good! Members of the CICU decided to hold a Dress like Dan Mark Day and we hope this isn’t the last. They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery – and who better to emulate than Dan Mark, MD? Some of the participating team members shown in the photo are Mark Brahier, a Duke IM resident, cardiology fellow Allie Levin, IM resident Sara Stallworth, and the real Dan Mark.


ICYMI: McGarrah, Jackson CGR Recordings

We had excellent CGR presentations in January from electrophysiologist Dr. Larry Jackson, and heart disease prevention and rehabilitation specialist Dr. Robert McGarrah. If you were unable to attend either of those sessions, we have links to the recordings here:

PPE Usage Reminder

DUH/DUHS is reminding all teams that PPE continues to be a top priority as we strive to meet 100% compliance. We encourage leaders to focus on PPE in your huddles and other communications with your teams. These discussions are great opportunities to address any barriers and concerns interfering with proper PPE usage. Please refer to our detailed analytics site for real-time numbers.

Encourage team members to observe safe practices

We continue to see increasing cases of respiratory illnesses in our community, as well as COVID clusters at work. Please help remind staff to take the appropriate precautions to protect themselves and their families from the “tripledemic” of the flu, RSV, and COVID.

As a reminder, all team members are eligible to receive the bivalent COVID-19 booster shot. Appointments can be made through the Duke Vaccine website.

It is also critical that our staff continue practicing consistent hand hygiene and the appropriate donning and doffing of PPE. Thanks for your support with these efforts! You’re doing a great job.
