Kansas Hospital Spotlight: Suits to Scrubs Initiative
This summer, an innovative idea was spurred via St. Catherine Hospital’s regular employee engagement survey. Haley Evans — the hospital’s Director of Quality and Patient Safety Officer — said the idea stemmed from how the pandemic has affected care delivery, in ways both big and small. While the bigger issues may sometimes be easier to address as they get the most attention, the smaller issues can compound and chip away at staff morale the longer they go unaddressed. She said the employee’s idea was to help leadership see firsthand the changing circumstances in which they are providing care.
