Bold Voices - April 2011 - (Page 21)

LETTERS MEANINGFUL RECOGNITION Our unit faced tremendous leadership challenges over the past two years. To improve morale we adopted the meaningful recognition standard from AACN’s Healthy Work Environment Standards. Each staff member identifies a way to recognize others. Suggestions are offered or we can identify our own. After hearing about our Stand Tall theme, the clinical nurse specialist in our unit proposed an award for a nurse who positively impacted a patient’s care in a big way. We just gave out the first award, which included a certificate, a gift card and a presentation at a staff meeting. The awardee is a longtime CCRN. His photo and a description of his achievement will be posted in our unit. It has been a win-win for everyone. Melinda Holland East Highland, Calif. I was deeply touched by the video message that Dr. Bertice Berry recently sent to NTI attendees from the past two years. Her message e showed the human side of illness that our patients and their families experience. As a nurse I related to it with deep gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Berry’s meaningful recognition of how our colleagues touched her family’s life. Maria Shirey Evansville, Ind. ATTENTION TO DETAIL The illustration alongside the March issue’s page 27 article (“Do Shorter Door-to-Balloon Times Decrease In-Hospital Mortality?”) doesn’t match the article, which is about percutaneous balloon dilatation of a coronary artery and how door-to-balloon times affect mortality rates, not intra-aortic balloons. I would expect a local newspaper to make this mistake, but not a professional critical care magazine. I enjoy reading AACN publications and thank you for future attention to detail.
