How Modesto Cares (brochure: Birthday Celebration For Our Patients)

  1. 1. Kaiser Permanente, Northern California Caritas Consortium 2013 How Modesto Cares Caritas in Action How Caring Science informs and inspires KP caregivers and affirms our commitment to provide our patients and their families exceptional care
  2. 2. How Modesto Cares Intent to Contribute Statement: The inpatient setting can be an isolating place for many patients. The unit may be bustling with activity but many are separated from their loved ones while in the hospital. Sometimes illness even befalls a person at a special time of the year, like on ones birthday. At Modesto Medical Center we have taken this opportunity to make our members feel special and cared for in a way they may not have anticipated on their special day. In HealthConnect, on the patients snapshot, the birthdate will say "Today" with an icon of a birthday cake with candles. This alerts the nurse that it is the patients birthday and she sets some things into motion. She orders a lovely Birthday cupcake from the cafeteria (if appropriate for the diet of the patient,) a birthday balloon from the gift shop, and fills out a birthday card from the staff. If possible, she may even gather staff to sing "happy birthday" to the patient. All of these little things come together to make an unexpected and big impact on the patient, letting them know that we care.
