Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2009

Co-Authors:Renee Samples Twibell, DNS, RN, CNE
[Invited Poster or Paper Session] The purpose/target audience of this presentation is to help hospital nurses, clinical leaders, and administrators, as well as nursing students and educators, to learn the benefits of implementing a best practice model, the Geriatric Resource Nurse (GRN) Model, for caring for the growing number of geriatric inpatients.  The GRN Model seeks to improve outcomes for hospitalized older adults via development of gerontological nursing expertise in bedside nurse volunteers who in turn influence the practice of their peers.  A description of both GRN practice changes and systems changes implemented in our community teaching hospital as a result of the model will be outlined.  The results of patient outcomes data such as falls, restraint use, patient satisfaction, rate of sleeping pill use, satisfaction with pain management, and hospital-acquired pressure ulcers will be listed.  GRN role satisfaction and development will be highlighted.  Lessons learned regarding material and human resources needed to implement the GRN model will be presented along with plans for sustainability and dissemination.
