Shooting Hoops
Basketball Breaks Keep Things Loose

My OR coordinator tries to relieve some of the inherent stressors of busy OR days by getting the staff together for a "free throw" game when there's downtime. The trash receptacle is the "basket." Staff members take turns shooting a small toy basketball, and the person who makes the most baskets wins. They play for pride, not prizes. It's just a great way for the staff to take a breather and relate on a fun level.
