With all the transitioning and new staff on our unit, two other RN's (Denise Bowers and Melissa Eneix) and myself decided that our floor would benefit from having a social committee. Since our two units (6W and IMCU) merged when we moved to Fitzsimons, we thought it would be a good way for everyone to get to know one another outside of work. We notified our staff about this new and exciting committee and welcomed any ideas to kick it off. We then sat down together at work and brain stormed ideas and events we could do every two to three months. All emails and flyers were put together while at work and posted throughout the unit. Denise and I created a poster for the break room with pictures of past events to promote the committee and encourage involvement. Denise and I also took on the responsibility of making birthday bags. We met monthly at one of our houses to compile these birthday bags filled with candy, pens, etc for staff members having a birthday in the coming month. These were then distributed by us at work.
