Nursing Recruitment, Retention, how is your facility doing?

Oklahoma Heart Hospital boasts 98 percent retention rate for nurses, by Michaela Marx Wheatley, January 31, 2018:"Nurses are the first in line when it comes to patient care. Recognizing the vital role nurses play, one Oklahoma City hospital has put special emphasis on making its organization one of the best places to work for nurses in the region.

“Our nurses are involved in every aspect of their patients’ care and provide hope, compassion and healing to patients and their families,” said Denise Bragg, Oklahoma Heart Hospital chief nursing officer. “That's why we encourage our nurses, physicians and other caregivers to collaborate in setting our standards for excellence in patient care.”

Why NursesTakeDC 2018? Shelly Fink, RN #NursesTakeDC #NurseUp #NursesUnite #NationofNurses

Nursing friends!!

I just booked my hotel room for this event. If anyone is able to attend, or is interested, please check out the event page. Professionally, safe staffing ratios has not effected me. I currently work with an amazing team model that flows well.

In my critical care years, it was always 1:2, sometimes 1:1. But many of my colleagues who work other facilities struggle with this issue daily. For every patient added on to a nurses assignment, the risks of one of them dying goes up exponentially. I don't rally as a nurse to make my job better, personally my job rocks! I rally because I'm a daughter, a mother, a wife, a friend, and sometimes a patient, who understands why this is so important.

This is not a partisan rally, not a Republican vs Democrat thing. This is standing up for our profession and our patients to all who will listen. Consider joining me. Get involved.
