Join Amy and Madeline as they explore and explain how “dirty data” impedes the efficiency of your team in the perioperative loop and the steps you can take to optimize your department data.

The Six Core Values of True Grit

True grit starts with you. Igniting from small moments of struggle or setback, from case scheduling to managing inventory, your resilience and perseverance to get the job done, and get it done right, instinctively guide you to the next challenge to overcome.

Through grit, comes passion, courage, perseverance, resilience, conscientiousness, and leadership. All values you choose to learn, challenge and exemplify every day. But this self-development doesn’t grow in isolation, it grows through your surroundings, relationships, and embracement of the team experience.

Through you, come we.


What gets you out of bed and moving in the morning? Without heart, we’d be moving through life without meaning or purpose.  Your passion is what keeps you coming back, connecting with others, and doing the work that needs to be done.

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow."
― Anthony J. D'Angelo


Courage comes from the heart, it’s the fire within you that paves the way for something new. Going up against the “We’ve always done it this way” or “That’s just the way it is” beliefs and trying new processes to see change.  Courage is taking the chance on yourself and your team, not knowing what the outcomes will be, but believing that with courage can come great change.

Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” ― Brené Brown


Burn out. Fatigue. Failure. We may experience these throughout our life and that is natural, especially for healthcare professionals putting their lives on the line every day. But, perseverance isn’t about staying down, it’s the rise after the fall.  Through positive self-talk, a supportive network of friends and family, and identifying personal boundaries - you can rise to any event that comes your way.
"Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat." - F. Scott Fitzgerald


Leadership is learned over time. Through consistent practice and experience, the example you set can instill trust in those you support and serve. Leadership isn’t glamorous, and it’s not easy. If anything, being a leader means being part of a community, a team, and nurturing the growth of those individuals to see better outcomes for all.

"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails." -John Maxwell


Failure is a fact. We’ll each experience falling and failing, and how you bounce back and react is what trains yourself, your team, and your hospital to continue on and recover faster than before. Whether you’re learning new software, teaching a new process, or donning PPE to take on the unknown – understanding the importance of a resilient mindset will keep you ready and prepared to provide support and service when life happens.

I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” - Maya Angelou


It starts with you and ends with us. In order for better days and improved patient care, we have to understand each other and work together in ways that increase accountability, productivity, and safety.  When you take time with your team to understand their needs and values and share your needs and values with them, a collective experience creates an environment where new processes can be upheld, ideas shared, and voices heard. True grit, true you, true we.

"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." – Booker T. Washington
