F E B R U A R Y 2 0 1 7 • O U T PA T I E N TS U R G E R Y. N E T • 1 1 D o members of your perioperative team look like they're still waiting for their coffee to kick in during Monday morning meetings? Pump some life into the hallway huddles by gener- ating conversation beyond the day's room assignments and case sched- ule. Have staff members share some fun or meaningful things they did over the weekend. Ask them to acknowledge the positive performance of one of their colleagues or apologize to someone they may have wronged during a previous shift. Sharing personal stories and dis- cussing ways to improve the team's overall performance builds a sense of community among the staff, reenergizes everyone for the day ahead and starts the week off right. Wolfgang Stehr, MD, MBA UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Don't Sleepwalk Through Monday Morning Huddles • HEARD IN THE HALL Wolfgang Stehr, MD, MBA (right), acknowledges and appreciates the work staff put in over the recent holiday season and asks them to apply New Year's resolutions to their work life.
