Grasso is now YNHH’s nominee for National Magnet Nurse of the Year. She was honored for her outstanding contributions to nursing, including numerous research and evidence-based practice projects. Grasso implemented a fall-risk assessment tool that changed practice in the hospital and health system; an intervention to improve patient education compliance that dramatically improved Verdi 3 South patient experience scores; and the first unit-based Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.
