February 2016 Meeting Minutes

Staff Engagement and Breastfeeding Initiative

Meeting Highlights

D wing changes - OB special care wing to come July 2016.

With these changes, we need to hold off any major scheduling plans until we know who is going, who is staying and what our staffing needs will be. Also - the OB-ED opens on 3/29/16.


Sweet Beginnings - timeline has been delayed until June/July (Cesarean babies staying with mom and cord blood process)


Blank Schedule - the blank schedule in the break room is for you to put your dreams schedule on! The scheduling committee is going to review this in our first meeting along with your polls. If you didn't fill out a poll, there are some extra copies in the charge nurse office with the huddle board. Leave in my box.
