    Why did you come to work today?

    Why did you come to work today?

    As COVID-19 continues to spread, a lack of resources and medical supplies contributes to the frustration that many health systems in the US are feeling right now. That, along with the intensity and strain of the work facing so many physicians, nurses and support staff, could have a significant impact on patient care. As hospitals prepare for potential capacity issues, everyone is scrambling for extra beds, nurses, doctors, PPE… the list goes on.
    However, there’s an opportunity for health organizations to excel and overcome this challenging moment. Take the time to ask yourself and your staff, “Why did you come to work today?” Because that answer is what’s going to carry you through to the other side.
