Inside Ochsner Medical Center located at 1514 Jefferson Hwy., New Orleans, LA 70121 is a beautiful, elegant hotel called the Brent House Hotel. It is so hidden inside Ochsner Medical Center, after being asked, many of the employees working in the same building said they never knew there was a hotel on the property and others mentioned that they had seen a few signs for the Brent House Hotel but didn't know anything else about it. As far as the locals, after a quick survey of customers at a popular eatery across the street from the hotel, 100% of them had no knowledge of the Brent House Hotel (and they were literally sitting at a diner across the street from it).
Lack of work-life balance, unpredictable schedules and being understaffed are key drivers of provider dissatisfaction and burnout, all of which were exacerbated during the pandemic. By revamping its scheduling system, New Orleans-headquartered Ochsner Health has improved its anesthesia management program, resulting in increased provider satisfaction and better patient care.VIEW THIS ARTICLE ON Becker's Hospital Review
