As the leaves change and we enter the holiday season, now is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the crisp fall weather. I hope you and your families are able to take time away to enjoy the fall foliage. Please have a safe and happy Halloween!
Kelly Caslin has been appointed Director of Nursing for Neurosciences and Psychiatry effective November 15. Kelly earned her bachelor’s in Nursing from Towson University and a master’s in Nursing and Health Systems Management from Hopkins.
Kelly began her nursing career at Hopkins in the Department of Medicine as a clinical nursing intern on Halsted 4. After she transferred to the MICU in 1989, she progressed through the ranks to become a senior clinical nurse/NC III in the MICU and Osler 4; nurse educator & nurse manager (Osler 4, 2007-2013) and assistant director of Nursing (2013-present).
Kelly has been integral part of the DOM and while we congratulate her as she embarks on her new role, she will be sorely missed by her colleagues.

"We would be lost without Grace," says a colleague in the Coronary Care Unit at JHH. Grace models excellent clinical and leadership skills while helping to ensure that all patients and their families achieve the best possible outcomes in the most patients' lives, as her mentorship has greatly increased the growth and professionalism of new nurses. She takes the time each year to coordinate the Coronary Care Unit's Nurses' Week activities and even administer the staff flu shots. Well-respected and well-liked by patients and peers, "Grace is always available to lend a hand or provide guidance."
