Labor Management Institute, Inc. is happy to announce that our very own Jennifer Guild will be presenting on A Healthy Environment for Patients, Staff and the Bottom Line: Best Practices in Budgeting, Scheduling & Staffing.
Forum Theme: Fostering a Healthy Work Environment through Synergy, Inclusion and Ethical Leadership
Hospital surveys have shown that a positive work environment improves the quality and safety of patient care, reduces staff burnout and turnover, and improves patient satisfaction. Unfortunately, staff and families bring outside stressors into the NICU, incivility among staff is on the rise, and tension among racial, socio-economic and generational groups is palpable in many hospitals. Keeping staff happy, healthy and feeling valued has become a top priority for today’s leaders.
This pre-conference will share best practices for scheduling, staffing and budget management for the NICU Nurse Leader. Participants will complete interactive exercises to facilitate skill growth relative to FTE budgeting, utilization of schedule requirements, schedule construction and auditing. Together, we will unlock the plan to design and deliver the human resources to provide safe care to the neonatal population, including: a balanced schedule, skill mix, education and replacement of paid and unpaid absence.
