National Patient Transport Week is held annually on the first full week of November.
This year, we celebrate November 5 – 11, 2023
This week is a special time of celebration as we focus recognition on the daily effort that each of you puts forth in providing transportation service and care to your patients. Transporters play a vital role in patient flow, patient care, and the overall patient experience, and should all be proud of the work you do!
Here are just a few ideas to recognize, pamper, engage, and reward staff!
Partner with your Marketing/Communication Team to make announcements and display information about Transport Week
Create Contests or activities for your teams to participate
- develop a new slogan or uniform shirt design
- trivia contests
- staff name that baby picture contest
- Scavenger Hunt
Hold a Transporter of the year contest and solicit nominations and votes
Provide meals and snacks (everyone loves food!!)
Solicit gifts from vendors (if permitted) to distribute
