Blog: Great Work, Team D1 Nurses!

Successful nursing in any hospital unit depends heavily on teamwork, and our D1 Nursing Unit has become an inspiring model of it. The 45-bed unit provides clinical care for cardiac, renal, medical, and surgical patients. These nurses’ ability to work together, both interdependently and cooperatively, on behalf of these patients led to a Team Work Award nomination with the Northeast New York Professional Nurses Organization (NNYPNO) earlier this year.      

“These nurses have demonstrated, time and again, their ability to deliver compassionate, individualized care through their outstanding development of teamwork,” says D1 Unit Director, Michelle Little, BS, RN, CMSRN, who nominated them for the award. “Their energy is infectious and creates a more joyful workplace. They have mutual respect for each other, clear communication, and an openness to learn. These are the key ingredients to staff satisfaction and an enhanced patient experience. They worked hard to achieve this level of teamwork, and I couldn’t be more proud of them.”  

Although the nursing team did not win the competitive regional award, they continue to build upon their success, epitomizing the qualities of a highly motivated group. Their Press Ganey survey scores reflect a team that enjoys their work and believes their unit delivers high quality care. The D1 nurses are focused on achieving their tasks, driven by results, and take the time to build relationships of trust and respect among each other.

“Every organization relies on a good team,” says Mary Jo LaPosta, PhD, RN, Senior Vice President of Patient Care and Organizational Excellence and Chief Nursing Officer. “The D1 Nursing Unit Team is committed to excellence in clinical practice, professional development, and quality and safety. Equally as important, they celebrate each other’s contributions. This kind of teamwork translates into our patients receiving the highest quality of care. Their contributions are deeply appreciated by the Saratoga Hospital community.” 

Congratulations and thank you, D1 Nursing Unit Team!
