June 14th, 2012

Winners of the Target Zero "Ask Me if I Washed My Hands" song writing contest from left to right are Irene Hansen, EEG Technician; John Hansen, Kim Billingslea, Director, Patient Safety and Advocacy for Shore Health System; Cynthia Gullion, RN, Shore Works; Renee Jeffries ; John Jacobs, RN; and Gary Jones, RCP, FAACA, Director of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Services.

Cindy Gullion, RN, a nurse for Shore Works, was named the winner f the Target Zero songwriting contest. Gullion's entry, which featured her own original music and lyrics, was selected from a pool of 13 song entries as the most inspiring song to help spread the word about hand hygiene and its important role in the prevention of healthcare associated infections. Entries were judged on creativity, originality and how well the lyrics conveyed the message of Target Zero by members of the Target Zero steering committee.

"We were so pleased with all of the entries and Cindy's really covered every aspect of what we do here at Shore Health System to prevent healthcare associated infections," says Kim Billinglea, Director, Patient Safety and Advocacy for Shore Health System.

Gullion, who is part of a singing ministry duo that performs at churches and other events throughout the Mid-Shore, says she was excited to combine her two greatest passions.

"I work in and love healthcare and music is really my true passion being able to bring the two together for this contest was pretty exciting," says Gullion. "I was pretty shocked that I won " all of the entries were great!"

In addition to receiving a $250 prize for her efforts, Gullion will also get the honor of seeing her song made into a video later this year.

Congratulations to Gullion and all the entrants for their great work and continued commitment to the Target Zero mission. To listen to the entries, visit the Target Zero website at
