Optimism refers to positive energy and the drive to achieve better results. It has been proven that optimism can help you recover faster from illnesses. It is important to recognize people who are positive and share smiles. The Optimistic Hospital Foundation, which has been doing this for seven years with its Awards is dedicated to improving the health of hospitalized people by promoting initiatives that encourage a positive environment for patients and their families.
Poniente University Hospital has been nominated for some awards, including the Pediatrics area in Service category, and Isabel Hernandez, Puerperas manager as Positive Manager of Puerperas.
Poniente University Hospital was nominated for several awards in which it competed against approximately 150 other hospitals across the country in different sizes and categories. This is why the Poniente University Hospital is among three nominees for the awards that will be presented in Valencia on June 27, 2012.
Precisely Isabel Hernandez knows exactly what it means for her to be awarded the Positive Manager award. She received it last year as a pediatrics manager. A prize with special value.
Hernandez is delighted with the nomination. Hernandez says, "I believe it's important that your team is able to approach you, discuss issues, and try to find solutions together. That's very positive because we're a close-knit family."
It is also true that he was assessed by his colleagues.
Jaume I University's Want team, which is a pioneer in psychosocial diagnosis research, has created an evaluation tool. Workers can download the application and answer a survey. This will scientifically assess the center's situation and evaluate the leader. The results are based on the anonymous and voluntary responses of workers.
Isabel Hernandez is more emotional knowing she is highly valued by her peers. He says that everything comes down to the team. "When you have a group behind you that gives everything, everything works out." He also said that these projects are more positive as people are rewarded for doing a good job and that it motivates them.
Concerning Service, this is the first time Pediatrics has been among the three finalists. Antonio Vicente, the head of the Pediatric Unit, said, "We are very happy. It always encourages you do different things, and do better."
Vicente says that Vicente encourages them to keep working. Mentally, work can be stressful. The routine, stress and overload are all part of the job. But, Vicente says that companionship is a key component. I believe that this is true when it is about working. I also think it shows in how families, patients and children are treated. I think they leave our service happier.
