Health care worker and patient satisfaction and protection is at the forefront of any hospital’s strategic initiatives. In this webinar, Baptist Health shares its journey that resulted in adoption of an innovative approach to addressing these strategic initiatives.

This program will provide an overview of current challenges and potential solutions related to occupational exposures. In addition, the challenges associated with change will be discussed, as will examples of how to overcome resistance.
