Help Haiti

 
Haiti volunteer ideaTeams of Seven

We urge hospitals to consider allowing nurses to take paid leave to volunteer to help those in need after the earthquake in Haiti. And here's another idea about how nurses can afford to volunteer. Consider forming teams of seven nurses each at your institution. If six nurses work an extra 12-hour shift every other week and donate that income to a seventh nurse, the seventh nurse can afford to volunteer in Haiti and the institution should come out even in terms of staffing. Ask human resources personnel at your institution to consider these and other ways to help Haiti. Tell us what you're doing at your institution to get nurses to Haiti.
