Dakota Lions Sight and Health visits CCH for Continuing Education

Chadron Community Hospital had the pleasure of hosting one of Dakota Lions Sight and Health employees, Connie Putnam, Regional Donor Development Manager. Connie provided continuing education for our clinical employees regarding tissue donation, tissue procurement, honoring donor wishes, and the report of deaths. Annual education on tissue donation is a CMS requirement for participating hospitals.
