Remembering Susan Pinkard, FACT Inspector and Dedicated Nurse Leader

Posted in :: 2023 Volume 6 :: Thursday, October 26th, 2023

It is with great sadness that we remember Susan Pinkard, who passed away in August 2023. Sue was a long-time and dedicated FACT inspector. She served as an inspector for 10 years and performed 18 inspections. Sue particularly demonstrated her commitment to FACT following the COVID-19 pandemic, after which she performed several inspections once they were resumed.

As described in Sue’s obituary she loved her family and devoted her career to helping bone marrow transplant patients. To read Sue’s full obituary, visit
