We used to let chart correc- tions, post-op phone calls and other chores pile up until the end of the day, when some unlucky person would get stuck trying to handle everything. Now we have individualized mailboxes for every- one, and the charge nurse passes out the day's tasks each morning. People can take advantage of any downtime they might have to get their jobs done, so we're doing a much better job of keeping up, and everything is distributed evenly, so no one gets stuck having to do more than her fair share.
