Did you know?

DOM Leadership Rounds has begun. Nurses and leaders from the Department of Medicine have begun rounding on unit huddle boards (Meyer 8 & Nelson 7). We are measuring lunch breaks compliance and any barriers to nurses taking a well-deserved lunch break. Eventually we will involve the entire department, but for the pilot we will only involve a few units.

Cynthia “Cindy” Ryan, RN, Meyer 8 received the Daisy Award for January 2020. The award is an international award to recognize skillful, compassionate care from nurses. Patients, families, visitors, physicians and staff may nominate a nurse, and only one JHH nurse is selected by a committee of peers to receive the award each month. The recipient is recognized in a public ceremony during which the nurse receives a hand-carved stone sculpture titled A Healer’s Touch, a certificate and a lapel pin.  Below, Cindy is pictured with her family, colleagues and leaders.
