Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Changing the work environment and increasing retention by using of the Forces of Magnetism. Learn how one hospital used specific Forces to target problem areas and decrease staff turnover rate from an average of 42 percent a year to 18 percent. ABSTRACT: Over the last three years the Burn ICU has experienced an unprecedented turnover rate. With an average turnover rate of 42 percent and a high of 70 percent, nurses were leaving as fast, or faster, than they could be trained. The nursing staff's perception of the Burn ICU had become negative. In a survey of staff satisfaction, 90 percent of staff stated they had considered working else where. Over the last year changes in interdisciplinary relationships, management style, personnel programs, and organizational structure have decreased the turnover rate to 18 percent. Staff participation has been critical in changing the environment to one that fosters growth, teamwork, and autonomy. Methods of implementation, gaining interdisciplinary buy-in, staff acceptance of change, and goals for future improvement will be discussed.
