Has a patient ever expressed wishes for you not to care for them?
Friday, Sept 7 at noon
Through rounding, listening tours and other forums, we have heard stories within our own walls of patients who have asked for care from a different team member. This patient concern may be based on a team member’s dimension of diversity like race, gender, sexual orientation or otherwise. At Novant Health, we value team members and patients from all backgrounds, and it is our goal to create an inclusive environment for all.
Tanya Blackmon, executive vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer, and Denise Mihal, executive vice president and chief nursing and clinical operations officer, are creating a policy to ensure that our patients and team members are always treated with respect. Join Tanya and Denise during an upcoming web chat to share your input, feedback and stories of times where disrespectful situations were handled well or poorly. This is a moderated event, and team members can post anonymously.
