Well, I am just full of it – full of new Therap information and excitement that is! My first Therap conference was very enlightening. Now I need to do some more exploring in the modulars we are using. Then I need to figure out how best to share all the material here at MDC. I am hoping to be part of the impetus to get us using the MAR, more health documentations, and more Training Management. There are so many more things we could be doing in Therap that we are struggling with how to manage.
While our current MAR system is doing fine, it would be so much better if it were computerized. We do have limited computers and access, so that will have to be part of the discussion. But I do not think the lack of machines prevents us moving forward. Guess I better be chatting with our nurses!!
The training components are wonderful. Kitti did an excellent job convincing us of how to be remarkable training managers! We are using parts of the tools Therap provides, but not enough to be effective. We have replaced a few pieces of paper for tracking who-completed-what. It is functional
for that one small piece. However, there is so much more that could be done. The initial time to set up is the only “draw-back” and even that is reasonable. We are changing how we describe the training person so now is the best time to organize this change. A new person will give us fresh thinking to move us into new systems.
Lastly, I would like to say how nice it was to be with co-workers and see how cohesive we are with the idea of taking on the opportunities Therap allows. Thanks!
Until next time, smile at the stars…..
