As fall arrives, the medical center steps into a bustling season. With the upcoming holidays and the onset of the flu season, our patients rely on us more than ever. In fact, our patient census often rises during this time. When faced with these challenges, it's all too easy for minor details to slip through the cracks. However, in healthcare, these very details can make all the difference. To ensure we are well-prepared, it's crucial to consciously pay attention to the finer points to ensure operations and patient care run smoothly.
I want to express my gratitude to all of you for the exceptional work you already do, especially in regards to communication about high patient census and team member callouts. Your teamwork is truly outstanding. To keep us sharp and vigilant during this season, I thought it would be fun to organize a contest.
