Small Facility Needs
One thing we continually learn from our readers is how much the staff, supervisor and management needs change from facility to facility, day to day.
From critical access hospitals, to physician office labs or small regional facilities, the daily focus is vastly different from a large hospital laboratory or reference lab setting. Balancing staffing needs, education and scheduling, with equipment, testing runs, physician needs and volume shifts can be a challenge.
Much of the focus can often be placed on the largest, newest or the most cutting edge facility. But those small, critical laboratories and the professionals who work in them are often accomplishing the same, life-saving work, with less resources.
We want to help. We've heard about facilities teaming up to pool their resources and knowledge, sharing ideas about how to overcome the challenges of a small facility. We want to hear from you about your biggest concerns, challenges and successes. What do you need help with, and what have you instituted in your facility that might benefit another? Share your stories and questions below. We can all benefit from knowledge sharing.
