    We did have a Walk in My shoes program for employees who wanted to see what another unit would be like. However, you had to be an employee in order to take advantage of it because of HIPAA.

    What exactly is a walk in my shoe program? You work in another departement for a day? I'm curious. Never heard of that where I work.

    We had a job swap at my facility. We posted a sign at the time clock and everyone who wanted to participate signed up either as a host or participant. Everyone was matched up accordingly. This was a LTC. There were swaps such as a CNA as administrator and DON, Nurses worked in housekeeping and the kitchen. It was a great way to see how the other departments worked. Good team building.
