Less than half of hospital workers say leadership clearly outlined COVID-19 plans

Only 36 percent of full-time U.S. healthcare workers say they're confident they'll stay safe by following their hospital's COVID-19 policies, according to Gallup.

2. Keep managers accountable and aligned.

3. Use ongoing dialogue and rounding to address safety concerns.
