Employee Service Awards, Sept. 21

The BWH community is invited to attend the 35th annual Employee Service Awards ceremony on Monday, Sept. 21, at 4 p.m., in Cabot Atrium. The awards honor employees who have worked at the hospital in increments of five years. Traditionally, Service Awards have been held each June, but with the implementation of Partners eCare later this month, the date of the ceremony has been changed. More information will be forthcoming from Human Resources.

Cashier’s Office Hours Changing June 1

Due to the May 30 implementation of Partners eCare, the Cashier’s Office will be closing a half-hour early, beginning June 1, to accommodate different workflows that need to be established in the new system, as well as timing of payments. Effective June 1, the Cashier’s Office will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

Hearing Screening, May 29

The Division of Otolaryngology is offering a free hearing screening for BWH employees on Friday, May 29, 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m., in the ENT clinic in the 45 Francis St. lobby.

BWH Employee Alert System

BWH offers an alert system that enables employees to receive important emergency-related messages from BWH by text message, email and/or phone call. The system is subscriber-based, so you must opt in and select how you would like to receive messages. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to learn more and sign up.

BWH ID Protocol

Whether you’re an employee, contractor, volunteer or student, you must wear your hospital-issued ID badge at all times when you’re on hospital property. Properly wearing an ID badge enables patients and visitors to easily identify BWH staff. Badges are also critical for maintaining hospital security. They must be worn either pinned or clipped to an outer garment, picture side out, right side up, above the waist. Lanyards are acceptable as well. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to learn more.

Always Ready for Every Patient

Joint Commission surveyors will arrive unannounced sometime between now and February 2016 for BWH’s accreditation survey. To brush up on your Joint Commission knowledge and ways to prepare, visit the Continual Readiness page on BWHPikeNotes.org.
