New Boston resident Emily Sexton, a registered nurse in the infectious disease unit at Henry Ford Hospital, received the 2015 Clara Ford Excellence in Nursing Award for her work in developing a plan to handle the admission and treatment of Ebola patients.

Sexton earned the award in the category of quality and safety, which is one of seven categories represented by the award. The other categories include growth, community, finance, research and education, people and service.

Given annually to nurses in the Henry Ford Health System, the award also recognized her success in lowering the number of injuries at the hospital caused by falls.

The award is named in honor of Clara Ford, wife of hospital founder Henry Ford. Clara Ford was a strong advocate for nurses and the Henry Ford Hospital School of Nursing, which was founded in 1925.
