Testimonies

The SPPRAK banners are up at Terre Haute 


Regional Hospital and they are quickly being 


covered with Post-It notes for our employees! 



Day after day, our hospital staff is consumed with 


taking care of our patients and their families, but 


now, we are seeing the need to also turn our attention to our co-


workers.  We have always stepped up to help each other during times 


of tragedy, but we have never really had a place to just say thank you, 


share kind words or give special recognition for a job well done.  


People really enjoy being “SPPRAK’d.”



It is so simple, but a tremendously effective way to thank, encourage 


and lift the spirits of one another. Everyone likes to feel appreciated!  


In the long run, happy workers should in turn make happier patients!

“It is good, mostly for bad   people to learn good   


  instead of doing bad because bad stuff could  just 


  hurt other people's feelings.”


  Martin Waldbieser

“One student that was known for his negative   


  behavior began to intentionally look for positive   


  behavior so that the could have his name on the    


  SPPRAK wall.”

We implemented the SPPRAK Pack program at 


Terre Haute Regional Hospital in January 2014.  


We purchased 3 small banners to display in 


specific units of the hospital and one large 


banner to put in the cafeteria.  This program has 


been beneficial to our hospital in more ways than                                       

                                 one!  


Response from both staff, visitors, and patients has been 


overwhelming!  



Staff have utilized the banners in their areas to recognize co-


workers for helping each other out and working as a team.  


Visitors have posted notes praising hospital staff and the care 


their loved ones have received.  We have also had 


patients acknowledge a specific nurse or staff member that went 


out of their way to make a difference in their recovery.  We have 


been rotating the banners throughout units on the 


hospital and they fill up quickly with the colorful post it notes. 



I would recommend this program as a great act of kindness and 


morale booster!
