If you want to know what a team with a ‘high agency engagement score’ looks like, check out Jasmine Unit who are just one of the high achieving teams based on results from the 2021 Working for Queensland staff survey.
Nurse Unit Manager, Val Pick said receiving a high inclusion index score in the WfQ21 survey is testimony that Jasmine Unit functions on a true interdisciplinary model which also reflects the Metro South Health ICARE² values.
“In Jasmine Unit, we are continually looking for ways to do things better and staff are encouraged to participate in a decision-making process where all ideas are considered,” she said.
Jasmine Unit is a specialist rehabilitation facility for adults with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and patients admitted to the Jasmine Unit often have a long journey of rehabilitation ahead of them.
“Our staff are keen for the patients and their families to get the best experience from their extended rehabilitation with us and our staff culture plays a big role in this.
“The staff always look out for each other and know they can come to the NUM or the Nursing Director for support when they need it,” said Val.
Metro South Health's most valuable asset is its workforce. Positive workplace culture is essential in providing the best care for our community and overcoming any challenges along the way.
At Metro South Health, we strive to create a culture where our ICARE² values are at the center of how we work and interact with one another. In doing so, we aim to create a positive workplace where our people can connect with our vision and purpose, feel safe and welcome to contribute, and perform at their best.
