Care for the Caregiver Quality Check
Today, burnout within the healthcare profession is rampant. This burnout affects the quality of life of healthcare personnel and the quality of care for patients and families. That is why person-centered organizations strive to not only meet the full range of patient and family needs, but also those of the healthcare professionals. Instituting measures to support caregivers in maintaining their physical health and emotional well-being is an important strategy for improving retention, enhancing employee engagement, increasing joy in practice, and ultimately, improving quality of care.The ten question Quality Checking Tool was developed by Planetree to support organizations in assessing the current state of their care for the caregiver efforts, and then, identifying approaches for addressing gaps that may emerge.
