Virginia Mason implements Swanson Theory of Caring on nursing units
Enter a nursing unit at Virginia Mason Hospital & Medical Center in Seattle at the right time of day and visitors will witness something they might not expect at a busy metropolitan hospital: serenity. Lights are dimmed, pagers are silenced and nurses go about their work with hushed voices. This quiet hour provides chance for nurses to regroup amid a hectic shift. It creates a way for nurses to care for each other and themselves.
