At Laudio, we love celebrating National Nurses Week 2019 (#nursesweek) and celebrating the profession we believe makes the most impact in healthcare delivery. But what we love even more is how our platform approaches every week like it’s national nurses week.
On our latest webinar, special guest Katie T. Pollara, MHA, SPHR Manager, Nursing Workforce Development & Strategy at UNC REX Healthcare outlined the organization's new nurse onboarding program and explained how Laudio's AI data integration helps managers engage more efficiently and effectively.
Join our webinar on 2/26 2pm ET to review the results of the largest nurse retention study of its kind. We will explore the roots of nurse turnover and uncover the research-based benchmarks related to staff engagement opportunities.
Last year’s predictions for the health care industry included global trends focused on workforce development, patient consumerism, and cost reduction, to list a few. Throughout 2018, we saw how the health care industry is being disrupted and reshaped by sector consolidation, new nontraditional competitors, and increasingly educated and demanding consumers.
As 2018 comes to a close and healthcare leadership defines its priorities for the coming year, workforce development is topping the list across all U.S. health systems.
Would you think that newly-hired nurses in their 40s are most likely to turnover in their first year?
In a recent study, Laudio reported that the span of control for a nurse manager can range from 40 to 220 with an average of 85 staff nurses. Unfortunately, additional research also indicated that the higher the span of control, the higher the team’s turnover rate. Among other issues, the result is staff burnout.
I was lucky. After my near-fatal ski accident, I received excellent care during my 7-week stay that spanned three of the highest ranked hospitals in the country. But I could not shake the dissonance between the care I received and the engagement and satisfaction of the people delivering it. My caregivers were helping me, and I was truly grateful. From my perspective they were doing the most important job in the world. But as I got to know my team, I understood that they did not feel the same way about their jobs that I felt about them. They were burning out.
This week, Laudio, healthcare’s first staff relationship management platform designed to improve employee engagement and reduce staff burnout, is participating in TeleCon18 - TeleTracking Technologies, Inc., annual conference focused on solutions that improve the patient experience across the care continuum.
