Magnet appraisers to visit Hutt hospital in March.
A magnet hospital is one that meets the 14 principles identified by the ANCC as to what makes some hospitals "magnets" or more attractive to nursing staff. The model is characterised by flat structures, participatory management, staff consultation, minimal shift rotation, competitive salaries and automony. If successful in its bid, Hutt Hospital will be the first New Zealand hospital and the second hospital in Australasia to achieve this recognition. The Hutt Valley Mental Health Service is currently taking the model a step further by applying magnet principles within the multidisciplinary mental health context.
