I just found an old journal -- here are some ideas I logged into it a few years ago. Money was an issue, so these are all pretty "cheap" ideas -- good luck!
Quarterly unit-elections for:
*Nicest Nurse (attitude!!)
*Mentor (teaching others)
*Looking Good! (dress code, great scrubs
Bulletin Board with:
*Current journal article of interest
*Heart stories (the "Chicken Soup" books are great for these!)
--Staff members as babies/toddlers
--Magic Moments (proms, weddings, anniversary celebrations, graduations)
--Vacation Highlights & Postcards
*Inspiration (anybody can post, these get saved into a scrap book for re-use years from now.
These are all ways that you can show staff HOW to take responsibility for the environment in which they do their jobs. Hopefully others will contribute and follow your example.
Someone does need to be in charge and keep a bulletin board up to data. You also have to be committed to removing anything that smacks of cynicism -- it hurts morale, it offends your customers, & it will infuriate administration!
Good luck in your efforts.
