As we strive to create patient experiences that always meet or exceed expectations, it’s important to recognize that sometimes we will disappoint or even anger the patients and family members we are called to serve. We can all relate to times we have felt upset by a service, restaurant, travel, or product experience. Chances are, […]
200,000 nurses graduating each year and yet only 45% are engaged in their work In the United States, we are training more nurses than ever, graduating just over 200,000 new nurses in 20141. Yet, the reality is that 23 percent of nurse turnover occurs in the first year2. Often, we lose these nurses not just […]
Patients who perceive caregivers as working cooperatively are more likely to return to and recommend healthcare facilities. We recently had the opportunity to publish findings to create patient loyalty in the Emergency Department and Critical Care environments.

Starbucks is one company that appears to have seized the opportunity to listen to their customers and make important changes. For example, Starbucks closed all of their stores the same […]
Several years ago, while traveling alone for work, I was taken by ambulance from an international airport to a hospital 1300 miles away from my home. I had to navigate being in the hospital without family or friends nearby for support. The encounter opened my eyes to all the sights, sounds, and feelings patients have […]
In Healthcare, we are braver, stronger, smarter, and more resilient than we give ourselves credit for being.
