Let's ask every animal, every day: What can we do for you today? Introducing daily rounds in your agency (or polishing up a process already in place) can be an excellent first step in getting started with decreasing your Length of Stay (LOS).
Structured daily rounds are the foundation for improving animal care, reducing unproductive waiting time, and saving more lives. Daily rounds are an essential tool for serving the animals, recognizing their needs, and making decisions. Daily rounds also help you keep the pulse on your organization.
In this webinar, we discuss:
• What to cover when doing rounds
• Who should be rounding
• Implementing systems for follow through, including specific examples of how different shelters have employed rounds procedures
This presentation is designed for shelter veterinarians, shelter managers, shelter directors, and shelter staff.
