First, evaluating workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics; and second, a confidential employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

    • A daily hospital medication schedule helps empower the patient with knowledge about the medications he/she will receive while in the hospital and increases patient and family participation in care. It also helps catch potential medication errors.
    • The report is given out to ALL inpatients and/or their family members by the nurse on a daily basis.
    • We challenge you to partner with and engage the patient and family members in becoming a vital part of the healthcare team by giving them a daily hospital medication schedule.
