Jefferson Memorial Hospital

RANSON, W.Va. — When adult patients settle into their hospital rooms at West Virginia University Hospitals-East’s Jefferson Memorial Hospital, a tiny towel bunny holding a “Housekeeping Cares” lip balm is there to welcome them.

This gesture of hospitality earned the hospital’s environmental services department companywide recognition in Sodexo Health Care’s best practices award program. Sodexo, an organization that provides food and facilities management services to hospitals across the country, manages the environmental and food/nutrition services at Jefferson Memorial.

According to Joe Smith, district manager for Sodexo Health Care, the best-practices program began out of a grass-roots effort of managers wanting to share their experiences to help fellow managers within the Sodexo organization.

Since Jefferson Memorial Hospital started offering “boo boo bunnies” more than a year ago, patient satisfaction scores have increased.
