    I Don't Care: Nurses Must Make Selfcare a Priority with Colea Owens

    I Don't Care: Nurses Must Make Selfcare a Priority with Colea Owens

    Host Kevin Stevenson cares; he just doesn’t do care. On this episode of I Don't Care, Stevenson spoke with someone who does do care: Colea Owens, Professional Development Nursing Educator. Owens’ passion is quality healthcare, and she knows the best way for nurses to provide the best care for patients is first to take care of their own well-being. Owens advocates for nursing self-care and diversity in the healthcare industry.

    “Empathy is why nurses are so trusted,” Owens said. “But being in such an empathetic profession, sometimes nurses care so much for their patients, they forget to care for themselves.”

    Owens pointed out the need for teaching nurses coping skills to deal with some of the more high-stress situations that come with patient care.

    Owens saw opportunities to set nurses on a path for success from the first year in nursing school. Residency programs are one way to help nurses understand the real-life challenges they’ll face on the job and determine what area of nursing they’ll pursue.

    “I think the hospitals, the schools, and the industry as a whole, need to do a better job at the outset of setting the expectation of the reality of what nurses will face in the real world,” said Owens. "Nurses learn everything they need to know from a textbook standpoint in school, but once they get out in the field, how do they deal with patient experience and hospitality? I don’t believe institutions provide enough emphasis on these issues in nursing school.”

    Owens said nurses should be better advocates for themselves at their healthcare facilities; show up to meetings where their opinions could make a difference. If there is a weekly clinician meeting taking place and a nurse advocate is not there to share what is working and what is not, the problem will inevitably continue.

    Overcoming Challenges Facing Rural Hospitals

    Overcoming Challenges Facing Rural Hospitals

    On this episode of I Don't Care, host Kevin Stevenson is joined by Eastland Memorial Hospital’s Ron Hunt, who brings to the table a lengthy career of experience in rehab and post-acute care, to discuss the ins and outs of rural healthcare.
    Rural facilities can differ from those in larger metropolitan areas in a variety of ways, including the very nature of their staffs of medical professionals – rural facilities sometimes have to rely on episodic doctors willing to travel and work on location.
    “We’re pretty fortunate here (at Eastland),” Hunt said. “We’ve got, I believe, five physicians that are still in town. … We’ve got a general surgeon, which you don’t see happen very much, anymore.”Still, Hunt and Eastland also contract with an outside company through a hospitalist program, which allows for outside physicians to come into the hospital and stay with patients from the time they are admitted until discharge. Eastland’s ER operates in a similar manner.
    Hunt and Stevenson also discussed the challenges that Eastland and rural facilities face, including aging populations, challenges in treating patients who are unemployed, and more
    “There are a number of things that are going on in rural America that make it difficult for us to maintain the hospital,” Hunt said. “We have an older population. … The other thing that we see out here is we see a lot of people who are either unemployed or underemployed.”
