National Nurses Week is here – Make it a happy one!
Happy Nursing Week!
Hey, Nursing Week is coming up!
At Celpax we’d like to send a big Thank You to this hard-working and dedicated group of people.
You nurses simply rock.
Employee morale is down and burnout is rising among nurses as many are left vulnerable to COVID-19.
So we figured we would send some love your way to celebrate National Nurses Week.
A day in the life of a nurse
As a society, we face some pretty big challenges in tackling the health and wellbeing of the population. Nurses play a key role in delivering health care.
From talking to our users we’ve learnt that every single shift can be as reenergizing as tiring.
A day in the life of a nurse can be pretty hectic. With, or without Covid-19.
What are the blockers in their day to day?
Stress? Safety gear? Bullying? Understaffed? Hourly contracts? Bad nursing manager? Strange rules? Bad pay? Not feeling safe? Too few hours? Too many?
A day in the life of a nurse, like in any profession, has its ups and downs. One day you’re happy waking up going to work, the next day you can’t wait for the mega stressful shift to be over.
At times it’s just that you need a break. But sometimes it’s more than that. How do you spot signs of burnout? Self reflection at the end of the nursing shift helps increase self-awareness and ease anxiety.
What made your workday green? And what triggers you to press red?
Who do you need to talk to for that to change?
National Nurses Day – A green one?
Let’s imagine that yesterday was National Nurses day and you were working.
How was your day?
Was it a tough, red, work shift? Or a good, green, shift?
Ask your healthcare workers to rate their workday using the Celpax device. Then use honest conversations to find out what makes your nurses press green (and red!).
The data on the dashboard will confirm if the actions you take improve the nursing work environment.
Are you getting more green as the weeks go by? How is this quarter compared to last?
Or how is the mood at the night shift lately?
You can then cross-check the employee mood with other KPIs like Patient Wait Time, Absenteeism, Staff-To-Patient Ratio, Room Turnover, Staff Turnover, etc.
What needs to change for more to press green at the end of the shift?
Here’s Robyn at Baylor Scott & White Health, who’s nurse engagement levels are really inspiring.
One of her Nurses Week themes was crazy sock day!
She actually managed to get 100% green on each day during the Nurses Week.
P.S. It’s not often we see these high levels.
Happy Nursing Week – 100% off!
Nursing week takes place every May, it coincides with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Who is leading the way in nursing these days, to make sure fellow nurses are OK at work?
We figured that one way for us to say thanks to all great nurses is to add a free design, worth $50.
So if you sign up for a Celpax during the National Nurses Week, we will design your cover using your background image. It could be a photo of your nursing team, hospital, etc.
Make every day a nurse appreciation day!
Just use the code #NursesWeek when signing up.
Improve your nursing work environment
Nurse wellbeing has ‘direct impact’ on patient care.
We would love to send you a free Celpax device. It will help measure if the actions you take help improve your nursing work environment.
Do your weekly meetings or social events boost morale at work as intended? It’s quite common to see differences between day and night shifts too.
“It was a lifesaver for me as a Manager to have the Celpax”, says Nursing Manager Robyn. She uses Respect, Involvement, and Empathy as cornerstones in her leadership at her Texan hospital.
We hope we can help improve nursing engagement, worldwide.
