Cutting costs while improving quality of care is a challenge that can only be met by experienced healthcare providers. With the pending retirements of so many nurse leaders and the difficulty of recruiting and retaining experienced OR nurses, where will this experience come from?
OR Manager can’t provide new staff or leaders, but it can offer resources to help solve these problems. The second edition of Staffing the OR: How to Recruit, Retain, and Sustain Excellence in Patient Care has just been published and is available to OR Manager Conference attendees at a substantial discount. Both this and the first edition (published in 2015) contain a collection of OR Manager articles grouped by topics including collaboration, teamwork, and workforce; culture; education/competency; and productivity.
Both editions also contain results of the annual OR Manager Salary/Career Surveys, which reflect nationwide trends in OR nurse leaders’ education, salary ranges, and scope of responsibility.
Other recently published books include Dollar$ and $ense: Using Data-Driven Business Models to Boost the Bottom Line, Materials Management in the OR, and Best Practices to Optimize Postoperative Recovery.
