In the Department of Medicine we have all said, at some point or another, “I didn’t know that.” This is because in such a large, functional unit effective communication amongst staff can be challenging. H202 has done well in tackling this challenge with “Hospitalist Headlines” a monthly newsletter put out each month by Holley Farley, NCIII. Included in the update are welcomes to new staff, staff recognition, CUSP information and updates. There is also a monthly recipe from one of the staff included and a suggestion on where to go on your next trip. The mix of fun topics along with need to know work information makes this an interesting read. Click the link below to see the full newsletter.

A huge thank you goes out to the following nurses and staff who received compliments this month:

  • Ashley and Stella, nurses in Halsted 2-Osler 2
  • Nikki W and Joanna, nurses in Nelson 6
  • Julian, nurse in Zayed 10 West-CVPCU: "...he was kind, patient, but above all I appreciated how he introduced himself, further explained my dad's surgery to my mom and me and explained what to expect..."
