Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: http://tinyurl.com/nn6b95d A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

Patient Safety and Quality Improvement

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) is working to make patient safety everyone's priority. The Patient Safety committee works regionally to build a culture of safety and create an atmosphere that is committed to excellence. We believe it is important to involve patients and/or family members. Patients and their families see situations from a different perspective and will be able to identify unsafe situations and work with us to promote safety.

Providing safe care is meeting patient's expectations of the care they receive. Patients expect:

  • To be listened to, taken seriously, and respected as a care partner
    • To have family/caregivers treated the same
    • To participate in decision making at the level they choose
  • To always be told the truth
    • To have things explained fully and clearly
    • To receive an explanation and apology if things go wrong
  • To have information communicated to the entire care team
    • To have care promptly and impeccably documented
    • To have these records made available if requested
  • For care to be coordinated among all members of the health care team across settings
  • To be supported emotionally as well as physically
  • To receive high-quality, safe care.
