“From Closed to Open in the Current Healthcare Time and Space” by Dianne H. Timmering

A question was recently posed about what would constitute “genuinely effective ways” in promoting a “compliant culture” in a healthcare business setting. Below are some thoughts on how this might be accomplished.

To transition the nursing home healthcare climate from one that has been historically “closed” to one of openness does not happen overnight.

It is the leadership declaring and standing by a new culture of transparency;

It is creating a safe environment, like a “triage line” to call and openly state when something goes awry so the company can address immediately and proactively;

It is “training modules” reinforcing ethics;

It is creating a platform for spiritual freedom of right choices which encourages morally right action from the beginning; and

It is a climate of collected grievances addressed with a consciousness of compassionate deliberation.

Moving from closed to openness in a scary highly regulated industry is possible with courage. Which we have.

“Break Away” by Dianne H. Timmering

Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Isaiah 43:18

Break away from old thoughts and surrender to new ones. Break away from old habits and abide in new ways. Shift. Shed doubt and believe. Replace anxiety with hope. Break away, God is saying. Break away. Break away.

Break away from co-dependence. Someone or something does not define you. God defines you for He made you and knows you and knows the number of hairs on your head. Hear Him. Break away from that which binds you.

He will speak the solution. Ask Him. Break away. Move into new purpose of pursuits. Shed old skin and replace it with brilliance for God is light and if we are made in His image, then you must be His light too. Find new boldness where there was once fear. Ignite into courage where His protection lies. Move. Go. Be. For he is with you.

Break away.
