Reporter Joe Carlson and Modern Healthcare have won two major journalism awards for the magazine's series on hospital security.
Carlson won first place among trade publications in the annual editorial awards from the Association of Health Care Journalists. In addition, he and the series garnered an American College of Emergency Physicians Journalism Award of Excellence.
The “Danger Zones” series was a three-part examination of what hospitals can do to protect patients and themselves. It looked at violence in hospitals, how technology can help facilities, and lessons in fire safety.
