Two Durham Regional Hospital departments have received the North Carolina Nurses Association Hallmarks of Healthy Workplaces award. Durham Regionals endoscopy services has been designated for a third time, and Durham Regionals education services department has received its first Hallmarks honor, according to a news release.
According to the NCNA, the Hallmarks of Healthy Workplaces program is designed to recognize exceptional workplaces for nurses and help nurses, healthcare providers and administrators create workplaces in which communication flows freely and nurses contribute actively to facility governance. “I am very honored to be part of such a wonderful group of people,” Angela Wilson, RN, BSN, CGRN, nurse manager of operations, Durham Regional Hospital endoscopy services, said in the release. “We take pride in the care we provide our patients, and it is wonderful that others recognize it as well.”
Hallmarks recognition is based on support of nursing professional development, system support for nurses to provide quality service, and integration of nursing into operations and governance.
“We want to own our practice as educators and provide a quality service to the hospital and community,” Tracy Stell, RN, BSN, EMT, assistant director of education and development, Durham Regional Hospital education services, said in the release. “As per Hallmarks, we work to promote open communication, respect and solution-focused actions to enhance the delivery of our departments educational products and services.”
