Inspirations and Innovations: Hospitals
It is true. The world will change forever due to the adjustments being made to remain safe from covid19. Hospitals around the globe have been a huge inspiration for what it takes to embrace flexibility and provide for the greater good of the people.
Many nurses and doctors who were in retirement have rejoined their medical staff to create a larger and stronger body fighting the disease.Hospitals have also made efforts to name specific regional hospitals zones for fighting the virus. They are transferring current patients to other hospitals that will not be accepting patients with covid19 to keep the vulnerable safe. This means staff will have to adjust to brand new patient care plans within hours.
Some hospitals have adjusted to virtual diagnosis and appointments with patients. While this is seemingly a simple adjustment, the infrastructure needed to support this type of communication within hospitals is one that needed to be created from the ground up at most institutions. Doctors, nurses and other medical personnel need to be trained on the technology and feel confident in their ability to use their medical skills to assess beyond a screen.
Remote hospital test zones have cropped up across the country. Keeping safety in mind, these zones were created to be accessible via your car. Medical personnel assigned to these pop up test centers were required to learn new protocol and be able to proficiently act accordingly within days.
In the recent shortage of face masks, gowns, hand sanitizer and ventilators, hospitals have been working with new manufacturers to get these products produced and sent to the front lines. Many local community members have rallied together to make these products or raise money to provide our health care workers with the safety products they need. The level of cooperation with the surrounding community is imperative. Hospitals are also quick and flexible to try new products being produced. Many technology companies have asked doctors to try new devices that would allow them to remotely monitor patients limiting their contact with the sick.
The medical community hold the responsibility of communicating to the government and public. They have made valuable recommendations for social distancing and particular medications to take and avoid if it suspected you have contracted the virus. Their service is one that should not go unnoticed. Here at Moore Staffing, we have many relationships with local hospitals and fully support and commend the incredible work they are doing.
So what does this mean for you as an individual or business? Moore Staffing employees have taken away the flexibility the hospitals around the country have shown us it takes to be successful. They are quick to solve problems while adhering to their values and sustaining their quality. We have realized we are more adaptable than we give ourselves credit for and as long as we remain open, we can learn and adjust to new ways of working together.
