Managers, administrators, and supervisors in healthcare facilities have many tasks to juggle every day. Besides running the facility, building a strong care team, providing patient and client care, and keeping beds full, they also have many duties related to staff performance management. Facility leaders should consistently manage their staff member’s performance throughout the year, coaching away undesired behaviors and recognizing and rewarding desired behaviors. This ongoing cycle of performance management is then documented and used to give staff members their formal performance evaluations. For a facility to be successful, its leaders must routinely review and grade the efforts each staff member makes towards meeting the facility’s goals and objectives. This course discusses the purpose performance evaluations serve within a facility and how to write them.
