Fort Myers, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2017 -- ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists' national service director recently provided insight into how applying the hospitality industry's practices within the healthcare field can result in better overall patient experiences.
Jay Juffre, ImageFIRST's regional vice president and national service director, recently shared one of his personal experiences in the hospitality industry. Juffre noted how noticeably more pleasant his stay was at a hotel he frequents on business after the title of the "Front Desk Associate" was changed to "Navigator." He suggests that, because of her change of title, the hospitality professional who greeted him took more pride in her job and went to further lengths to ensure the comfort of his stay.
Juffre went on to advise that healthcare facilities wishing to improve the patient experience look to the hospitality industry and adopt measures like title changes to improve the image portrayed by visitors and patients. For example, Juffre recommended that titles like "Security Guard" be changed to "Safety Officer."
