Posted by on May 25, 2017 in The LFT Blog | Comments Off on LFT Survey: Hospital Staff Turnover & Hiring Report – A MUST READ!!!

A few days ago, we released the results from 852 surveys completed by C-suite leaders, clinical administrators, non-clinical administrators, physicians, and nurses from hospitals and ambulatory organizations across the country.  Titled THE OTHER ELEPHANT IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM, the survey captures the human capital challenges that these organizations are facing.  I found the results to be nothing short of stunning.  We all know the staffing challenges that the industry, as a whole, is confronting.  What this new data shows is that the issues are far more severe than we expected.

The Cost of Never-ending Fire Drills

Posted by on Feb 1, 2017 in The LFT Blog | Comments Off on The Cost of Never-ending Fire Drills

How much of your time do you spend reacting to “fire drills” at work? Not calling the fire department type, but rather the unanticipated occurrence which you have neither the time nor resources to handle. Fire drills might be figuring out how to cover for someone on your team who called in sick or a surgeon operating on the wrong body part. And everything in between. A surprise budget miss? A harassment complaint? An increase in patient falls on weekend evenings? Not ready for the pending Joint Commission visit? Layer on top of this all that has been happening with healthcare public policy....
