One defining feature of Communities of Care is our commitment to consistent, stable care routines. From our beginning 20 years ago, we innovated a block schedule model. Here’s how it works.
Our nurses are set up on a two week rotation, with the same shifts every week. This allows them to know their schedules well in advance and make reliable plans around those schedules. A typical shift for a nurse is ten or twelve hours, with a few minutes before or after to brief the next nurse. Nurses will typically work three or four shifts a week, with days off between shifts.
Long-term predictability is difficult in other nursing settings, with schedules that change weekly or monthly. Once our block schedules are set, they don’t change unless requested by a nurse. This consistency allows all nurses to focus less on a schedule and more on providing optimal collaborative care to the client.
