Employee rounding is a powerful tool to form and maintain relationships in the workplace between leaders and their frontline staff. Progressive, participatory leaders began rounding or “checking in” with their employees long before the relationship between patient satisfaction and employee satisfaction was validated by data and research.
Leader rounding allows staff to proactively connect with patients and families. It fosters unit communication and reinforces a commitment to family-centered care and excellence in patient experience. Along with identifying opportunities for improvement, leader rounding also provides a way to recognize individual staff members who receive positive patient feedback.
The emergency department often is a patient’s first encounter with a hospital. This poses a unique opportunity for departments to get the patient’s experience off to the right start.
As leaders of these departments, we must never forget that small things do matter and that a patient’s experience is the sum of all their experiences and interactions. In this article, we are going to share two different strategies to understand the voice of your patients and employees that visit and work in your emergency department.
If you are new to Leader or Employee rounding, or if you just want to make sure that you are utilizing your programs to the fullest extent, we have a webinar that can help you. Nobl is excited about being able to share some of our webinars on the ways our partners are making the most of their rounding programs.
