Renee F. Nealy, left, perinatal hepatitis B coordinator for the New York State Department of Health's Western Region, and Lenora Teixeira, a public health nurse with the Niagara County Health Department, present a state Health Department certificate of excellence to Linda Hays, R.N., director of women's health services at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center.

The certificate recognizes efforts by the staff in Memorial's labor and delivery unit to prevent transmission of the hepatitis B virus. A recent medical records review showed 100 percent compliance with requirements under public health law mandating testing, reporting and recording of hepatitis B status for all pregnant women.
