Nursing PhD candidate earns third place at Galen – Brien Holden Vision 2014 Competition

Shanina Knighton, a PhD candidate at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, received third place in the Peter Galen – Brien Holden Vision 2014 Competition.

The Peter Galen – Brien Holden Vision competition is a graduate competition for open to all CWRU graduate students for biomedical-related concepts.

Her presentation, “Germs-Be-Off,” focused on her business concept proposal: a patient-controlled hand sanitation dispenser that affixes to the hospital bed rail for patient use. This device will remind patients at specified meal times and every two hours to clean their hands, as well as have others clean their hands when they come within a two-foot radius of the bed.
