Workplace Lactation Program: A Nursing Friendly Initiative
Author: MICHELLE A. ANGELETTI
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 31 No. 2
The U.S. is experiencing a nursing shortage that is threatening its quality of healthcare. One contributing factor that has been identified is the level of dissatisfaction that nurses have with their working conditions. Health Services Organizations can use female and family friendly initiatives, such as workplace lactation programs to demonstrate that they are willing to support a female employee’s task of balancing familial and profession roles. By meeting the needs of breastfeeding mothers, organizations can have a positive impact on employees’ levels of satisfaction, which can positively impact recruitment efforts, productivity and retention.
