Episode 12 Angela Laganelli

Culture is a set of attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and customs

75% of people voluntarily leaving jobs don’t quit their jobs,

they quit their bosses.

Developing and engaging.  The biggest underlying theme for engaging employees is not tracking every move or even their happiness, but to inspire them to do their job to the fullest extent and to do it well, and then enjoyment with their work will come.  Employees that are properly engaged tend to be more effective and productive.

Emotional connection an employee feels toward his or her employment organization, which tends to influence his or her behaviors and level of effort in work related activities. The more engagement an employee has with his or her company, the more effort they put forth. Employee engagement also involves the nature of the job itself – if the employee feels mentally stimulated; the trust and communication between employees and management; ability of an employee to see how their own work contributes to the overall company performance; the opportunity of growth within the organization; and the level of pride an employee has about working or being associated with the company.

How Employee engagement affects the culture, the Medical Assistant self-image, and Patient care?

“If healthcare workers are not engaged (which many are not) it affects patient care, employee morale and working conditions”. – Debbie Ruston

A Personal Note:

When you consider how much of our life is spent in our workplace, shouldn’t the workplace be like a home and being part of a team like a family?

I have experienced both realities, fortunately, I work in an environment that is a perfect picture of my motto. On my first day, my supervisor said, “It’s an honor to have a person like you here.” WOW!, I have never been told that; never.

What’s Your Culture like?

Episode 11 Mark Laganelli

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?” ― Henry David Thoreau

Understanding  Patient Care from a different Perspective

(A Learning Experience)

If you could stand in someone else’s shoes… Hear what they hear. See what they see. Feel what they feel. Would you treat them ( A Family Care Giver) differently?

Mark recognizes the importance of bringing love, joy and entertainment to the disadvantaged, lonely and underserved in nursing homes from his experience of caring for his Mother and Father.

Compelled by his caring, compassionate heart he brightens the residents day by singing songs by Elvis that brings about memories of younger years that are dear to their hearts; memories such as these have a profound effect, as can be seen on their facial expressions.

Passionately Determined: Nothing, no nothing, will stop this Medical Assistant

Nothing, will stop this Medical Assistant from making a difference in lives of others

determined 3

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Maya Angelou

Medical Assistants are limited more by attitude than opportunity, experience, knowledge or intelligent especially when the frustration of disappointment permeates.

In the case of Angela Perez, RMA, her frustration and disappointment is due to a chronic illness that limits her ability to practice the profession she loves. Each day she battles the "Demons" (as she refers to her state of mind).

In light of that, she explains her thoughts and feelings about her passionate mission to make a difference in as many lives as possible, also her experience being on the other side of the Stick.
