I had never opened a business before but a couple of people believed in me and encouraged me to do it, she said. I was scared, but by the grace of God, here I am. She found the perfect location in a 2,000-square-foot space on Illinois 13 near the Carterville crossroads and chose specific brands to carry names like Canadel, Bradington Young, Sam Moore, Stearns & Foster, Tropitone, Cozzia, Hooker Furniture and Kincaid Custom Upholstery. I bought the lines I believed in, quality furniture that isnt throwaway, thats in it for the long haul, she said. Each piece is uniquely handpicked and very tastefully done. The store has furniture for every room, plus lighting and accessories, and pieces are available for purchase or for customized special order. The industry changed during the 18 years I was at Coleman-Rhoads. You dont need to have a large inventory; in fact, that can hurt you, she said.

Physical work environment in hospitals affects nurses’ job satisfaction, with implications for patient outcomes, health care costs — ScienceDaily
The study, in the current issue of Research in Nursing & Health, revealed that while physical environment had no direct influence on job satisfaction, it did have a significant indirect influence because the environment affected whether nurses could complete tasks without interruptions, communicate easily with other nurses and physicians, and/or do their jobs efficiently. The research team conducted a nationwide survey of RNs to examine the relationship between RNs’ physical work environment and job satisfaction. They found that RNs who gave their physical work environments higher ratings were also more likely to report better workgroup cohesion, nurse-physician relations, workload, and other factors associated with job satisfaction. The team was also led by Christine Kovner, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor at the College of Nursing, New York University, and Carol Brewer, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor at the School of Nursing, University at Buffalo.
