From 12-hour shifts to miles walked across the hospital campus to long periods charting using uncomfortable equipment, nursing is a physically and mentally demanding job. Ask any nurse, and they’ll likely say that it’s all worth it for the impact they make in the lives of patients every day. But how can organization improve work environments so both nurses and patients can thrive?
In this one-hour FierceHealthIT webinar presented by Ergotron on August 28 at 2 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. CDT, Bob Hill, Ergotron’s Healthcare Manager, and Carrie Schmitz, Ergotron’s Senior Manager of Human Factors & Ergonomics Research, AOEAS, CHC, team up to help attendees better understand the role of ergonomics and properly-designed workstations—like Ergotron’s medical carts and wall mounts—in improving nurse satisfaction, the patient experience and clinical outcomes.
Attendees will learn how:
- Demanding schedules, uncomfortable equipment and time-consuming EHRs can act as road blocks to the best work environments for nurses
- Time-honored ergonomic principles can create environments that support the whole nurse
- Fostering strong nurse-patient connections leads to healthier (and happier) patients
Nurses, nursing leaders and hospital IT professionals won’t want to miss this one-hour presentation based on key takeaways from Ergotron’s new executive brief.
