Judith Welch Clark RN, BSN

Stroke Nurse

Biography

Judith Clark graduated from Saint Joseph's College in North Windham, ME in 1981 and worked at Quincy Medical Center for five years in Medicine-Surgery, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the Emergency Department.

In addition, she worked at Tufts/New England Medical Center in the Surgical ICU and Pediatric ICU, then became a Travel Nurse working in different PICU's across the country. In 1993, she worked at Boston Children's Hospital in the PICU and Radiology. In 2003, she went to Hallmark Health and worked in Quality Improvement and as a Float nurse.

She came to BMC in August of 2009 as the Stroke Service Nurse. Ms. Clark has played an important role in education to patients and their families about their stroke, dysphagia screening for all stroke patients, as well as ensuring stroke "Get with the Guidelines" benchmarks.

In June 2014, Ms. Clark was awarded the American Heart Association / American Stroke Association Stroke Collaborative Reaching for Excellence (SCORE) Star award. She was selected by her SCORE peers as the first of three finalists for the award. The SCORE Star Award was developed in 2011 to recognize a stroke coordinator who has demonstrated leadership among his/her peers. The collaborative model, which serves as the framework for SCORE, relies on shared learning among participants. SCORE members share best practices and tools through formal presentations and networking. Ms. Clark has been a true leader in SCORE and the program has benefited from her passion and commitment to stroke care. She has presented to the group on many occasions and most recently has been involved in the development and implementation of stroke training for skilled nursing facility staff.
