The Copley Hospital family is proud to announce Pharmacist Tom Frank as the next Team Hero. The Copley Team Hero award recognizes an employee who has demonstrated outstanding service to patients and their families and exemplifies Copley’s values of community, respect and compassion, service excellence, and life-long learning. Nominating Tom for the award was a group effort that included Meg Morris, Director of Pharmacy, Infusion Center’s Laura Labow, APRN, and the Infusion Center team. They describe Tom as an integral part of the pharmacy team, as well as a valued member of the Infusion/Oncology Center’s care team. “Tom is incredibly committed, organized and dedicated which shows in the meticulous job that he does each and every day,” states Labow. “He has dedicated his professional career to the field of oncology pharmacy. His knowledge and expertise in oncology make him an incredible asset to our care team, and more importantly, to our patients,” she continued.
Morris notes that Tom has been instrumental in developing policies and procedures, as well as worksheets for medication administered in the Infusion/Oncology Center. His focus is always on the patient. “The worksheets are not only instrumental in the workflow of the Infusion/Oncology Center’s pharmacy preparations, they allow him at a quick glance be able to recognize when dose adjustments or a change in treatment is needed for the patient,” Morris said. An example of his dedication and commitment to excellence is his is ongoing training of the pharmacists in Infusion/Oncology. Tom recently created a guide for Oncology pharmacy for pharmacists to use during initial training as a reference. “The guide is so incredibly thorough with pertinent information, and can easily be updated as Oncology treatments continue to evolve,” she continued. “We all feel truly fortunate to be able to work and learn from Tom on a daily basis.”
Tom has been part of Copley’s Pharmacy team since 2007. He resides in Jericho with his family. Please join the Copley family in congratulating Tom on receiving this award.
