Abstract:
Using Technology to Support an Acuity-Adaptable Care Delivery in a Renal Transplantation: An Innovative Patient Care Delivery of the Future
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2009
Author:Bonuel, Rizalina M., MSN, RN, CCRN, CNS, APRN-BC

Title:Clinical Nurse Educator
Co-Authors:Alma Degracia Cabading, MSN, MBA, RN, CCRN
[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Purpose: Improving patient outcomes through evidence-based practice and transdisciplinary collaboration using an acuity-adaptable patient care delivery model is a novel approach in managing renal transplant patient. Methods: A business case was presented to administration. Transdisciplinary team was convened to develop strategy to provide the care delivery. An educational core curriculum was developed to address competency of the staff. A strategy of communication was implemented to increase awareness of new care delivery from admission to discharge of patient to include all department affected by the change. Four rooms in the Multi-Organ Transplant Unit were developed as acuity-adaptable rooms. These rooms are equipped with monitors capable of ECG and hemodynamic monitoring for nurses to be able to respond should patient condition changes. The acuity-adaptable concept means keeping patient in the same room from admission through discharge regardless of the patient level of acuity. Results: Through the Care Management Performance Initiative of the Multi-Organ Transplant Service, favorable outcomes on the length of stay and cost in the management of renal transplant patient were highly evident. To date, there are now 8 acuity-adaptable patient room Conclusion: Using technology, acuity-adaptable care delivery shows promise as a patient care delivery in the future.
