    HOUSTON HEALTHCARE ANNOUNCES "COKES FOR CARING":
    AN EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION PROGRAM

    Houston Healthcare's Nursing Services Department today launched "Cokes for Caring," a new program to reward employees with a special souvenir cup and a card for 50 free refills of Coca Cola beverages from the hospital cafeterias. In addition to the Coke cup, employees will receive a certificate acknowledging their accomplishment.

    Employees can earn a "Cokes for Caring" in several ways, including demonstrating kindness above and beyond the call of duty to a patient; being willing to be part of a team and take on an "unwelcome" assignment; being part of solution-oriented thinking or a concept that would save their unit or facility money; helping to recruit for a difficult to fill position; having perfect attendance for six months; and working to achieve performance improvement goals for their team, unit, department or facility.

    "The program is starting as a pilot project in nursing services," explained Ginny Bartoldo, RN, Chief Nurse Executive, "but will be implemented during the year to work in all departments throughout the entire Houston Healthcare system."

    Is this their way of showing they appreciate nurses? Give 'em Coke and still not allow them to potty?

    Perhaps Coca Cola are due some e-mails explaining why they really dont need the negative publicity from being associated with these pennypinching shortsighted schemes.
