As part of DOC’s Patient Centered Medical Home Lean transformation, Health Services staff from across Washington assembled at Airway Heights Correctional Center to engage in a 5S (Sort, Set-in-Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain) workshop in August and September of 2022. The workshop was designed to boost frontline engagement and tap into the creativity of our workforce to remove waste, improve the overall quality of the environment of care, and enhance the experience of care for both our patients and staff.
The 5S workshop team created a presentation that includes basics about 5S and show how the team learned to apply the concepts and methods to create a more organized environment. It includes before and after pictures, results of the improvements, and next steps as we continue our Lean healthcare transformation at DOC. Lastly, we will present a leader’s guide that can be applied to other 5S efforts.
