It is not permissible for staff to park in designated patient parking areas on the Guthrie Sayre campus during the designated hours. This is to ensure that our patients and their families are able to find parking when they come in for appointments or to visit.
Congratulations to the Guthrie Clinic Dushore office for having an 8.1% improvement in the management of patients with hypertension. In celebration, the office enjoyed a lunch from Callears and desserts prepared by Dr. Bloom and Rita Urbanek. Excellent work by the whole team!
For the safety and courtesy of our patients and fellow Guthrie employees, please be sure to follow elevator etiquette at all times. This includes allowing everyone time to exit before attempting to board the elevator, being sure to stand clear of the doors when waiting for the elevator and only boarding the elevator when you are sure no one else is exiting.
To coincide with National Pharmacy Week, the Guthrie inpatient and outpatient pharmacies in Sayre are teaming up to hold a Brown Bag Event for patients. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19 at the Clinic Atrium on Guthrie’s Sayre campus. Patients are encouraged to bring in a bag of all current prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements that they currently take.
Guthrie believes that the most important component of a safe work environment is the engagement of our workforce. Below are a couple examples of how we can help provide a safer work environment at Guthrie.
1. Report any out of the ordinary comments, behaviors or actions to your supervisor or security. Examples of these may be:
September is National Preparedness Month. Everyone has a role in emergency preparedness at Guthrie. An important step in getting involved is to become knowledgeable in your department’s disaster plan. Most of these plans can be found on Compliance 360, otherwise you can contact your supervisor. Make sure you know how to respond to various overhead emergency codes used at Guthrie, be familiar with your facility’s evacuation procedures to move patients and yourself to safety and keep your contact information current on the department’s phone tree.
Throughout the month of September, we continue visits to each of the clinics to introduce the new recruitment and retention campaign to all employees. You will have a chance to sign a creative display which will travel across the Guthrie system and will be installed in the Sumner Lobby. Upcoming locations include: Waverly, Athens, Wyalusing, Tunkhannock, Dushore, Ithaca, Sayre Clinic Locations and House of Hope, and Towanda locations. For the road show schedule, please click here.
September is National Preparedness Month. One way to be prepared is to get involved in your community, especially before a disaster occurs. Community leaders agree that the formula for ensuring a safer homeland consists of trained volunteers and informed individuals working to increase the support of emergency response agencies during disasters. Major disasters can overwhelm first responder agencies, empowering individuals to lend support.
