Savannah Boltz: Infection preventionist prevails in pandemic

BISMARCK, N.D. - “I have been at Miller Pointe since 2014 and have been able to return to my first true nursing love of long-term care,” said Boltz.

In this role I track and review infections for both residents and staff, provide education for staff, and lead quality projects for the facility,” Boltz said. “The last few years have obviously added some atypical hats to all nurses, but traditionally my role involves monitoring for regulatory compliance, training, and competencies for new employees and/or procedures.”

Her colleague, Alena Goergen, nominated her for The Bismarck Tribune’s “Nurses: The Heart of Health Care” award because of her resilience.

“The past two years have been anything but easy for nurses in long-term care,” Goergen said. “Savannah has gone above and beyond to keep up with the everchanging rules and regulations surrounding COVID-19.”
