Abstract:
Problem: Formal care planning is one of the vital processes of nursing, but one nurses struggle to conceptualize. Purpose: The purpose of this project is to develop a process that meets the requirements of outside agencies, contributes to patient care and is user friendly. Significance: Planning patient care provides focus and direction toward desired outcomes that are specific to the patient and family. Practice Innovation: The CNS's reviewed the current system of care planning which varied depending on the care setting. Goals for the project included: User friendly, contributed to patient care, and meet requirements of outside agencies. Practice Guidelines were developed to replace existing standard care plans and standards of care. The Practice Guidelines are disease or condition specific, and include an outline of care for the disease or condition and goals. On admission Practice Guidelines specific to the patients condition are documented on the Admission Database. Each shift the RN is responsible for identifying Care Priorities based on assessment, patient/family input and Practice Guidelines. At discharge the Practice Guideline goals are reviewed and documentation indicates if the goals were met or what is planned to continue care to meet the goals. Evaluation: Chart audits are performed monthly to evaluate compliance with the process. Implications for Practice: As the complexity of patient care continues to increase it is important to develop systems that are user friendly and do not add additional work to the nursing staff. This system encourages critical thinking, is simple, does not require excessive paper work and is patient focused.
