N O V E M B E R 2 0 1 6 • O U T PA T I E N TS U R G E R Y. N E T • 1 5 Record an after-hours staffing assignment phone message so your staff know when to arrive the next day. Here's how. Just before leaving for the day, the clinical manager composes a staffing list and delivers it to a business office staff member, who records the staffing assignment phone message on a line that's dedicated for staff access. The message lists tomorrow's staff arrival times and area of assignment. Staff are expected to call in the evening to verify their arrival time. We also record a daily message for anesthesia providers to know OR room start times, including surgeon and total number of cases for each surgeon per OR room. Deneas Cochran, RN, CNOR Children's West Surgery Center Knoxville, Tenn. dcochrancwsc@comcast.net Notify Staff of Last-Minute Schedule Changes that we decided to give her a shot. And it's worked out great. She's still here: our staff education coordinator, physician scheduler and a nurse any patient would love to have.
