As we begin the biggest week of the year in long-term care, take a minute to consider the 2013 National Nursing Home Week slogan - Team*Care: Everyone Pitches In! I would suggest that in our industry, more than most, the only way to be truly successful is to work as a team. When one department struggles, it has an affect on every department.
Begin today to demonstrate respect of your coworkers and initiate a culture of teamwork. Whether you are an Administrator, department head, or direct care staff, you have the ability to make a difference.
How are you demonstrating that you are a team-player at your nursing facility? Share your suggestions!
Sending joyous wishes for a happy National Nursing Home Week 2013 to the absolutely amazing folks that I've had the privilege to work with over the past 19 years.
