UC DAVIS MEDICAL CENTER ONCE AGAIN RECOGNIZED AS AMONG THE UPPER ECHELON OF NURSING EMPLOYERS
After the American Nurses Credentialing Center renewed its magnet status, UC Davis Medical Center claimed its place once again as among the top echelon of nursing employers, as recently announced by the health institute’s leaders.
The Sacramento-based UCD medical center was the first institution in California to gain the nursing magnet designation and has held it for 12 years.
The magnet designation is given only to hospitals that point up giving their nursing staff the authority to execute clinical decisions at patient bedsides, as stated by the credentialing organization, and nurses at these facilities are encouraged to be involved in decisions concerning patient-care environment and professionally collaborate with team members from other disciplines.
“What it really represents is the hard work that all the members of the care team across UC Davis Health do to provide our patients with the best possible care at all times,” said Toby Marsh, chief nursing and patient care services officer at UC Davis Medical Center.
According to Donna Havens, the chair of the Commission on Magnet Recognition, in California, UCD Medical Center is one of only 36 institutions that have earned the magnet designation.
As researched by the California Health Care Almanac, there are 512 licensed hospitals in the Golden State.
Just like UC Davis Medical Center Erudite Nursing Institute™ encourages health institutions to indulge their nursing staff in patient-care environment and professional collaboration and improving nursing practices and initiatives to better help the community.
