For Doctors, Nurses and Hospital Staff
With 72 hospitals in its service area, LifeNet Health’s Hospital Services staff works with healthcare professionals to save and improve hundreds of lives every year. The primary goal of our hospital services staff is to assist each hospital in establishing an effective process to deal with the opportunity of donation when a patient dies. This process is often customized to incorporate current best practices and meet the specific requirements of each hospital. Hospital administrators, physicians, nurses, and allied staff work with LifeNet Health Hospital Services Coordinators to develop protocols, provide staff education, and evaluate regulatory compliance. Continuing education varies from formal classroom seminars to one-on-one hospital visits with physicians and nurses needing current information regarding donation procedures.
