Improving The View From A Windowless Recovery Unit
Chanel Thomas, Nurse Manager, Mercy General Hospital – Sacramento, CA
The patients feel good when they come here and are impressed, that’s the feedback I get from our staff.
Chanel Thomas, nurse manager for the Recovery Unit at Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento, CA, was looking for a way to give patients a window to the outside without having to do demolition to the walls or her budget.
Since hanging the Sereneview curtains, her patients think they are going on a vacation. They appreciate the attention paid to their arrival and our efforts to make them warm and comfortable.
Chanel’s staff also notices the difference when they are visiting other units in the hospital and how they stand-out. One of the benefits for the staff is to utilize the curtains as a distraction for difficult procedures more efficiently.
