Abstract:
Purpose/Objectives: The purpose of this project is to provide nurses and patients with consistent and complete discharge guidelines. Background/Rationale: When patients are discharged from the hospital they can be overwhelmed with instructions and educational information. Patients in the past received similar but different and possibly conflicting information regarding their care at home upon discharge after their coronary procedure. Streamlined and patient specific discharge guidelines can give the nurse a tool for educating patients prior to discharge as well as a reference for patients once they get home should questions arise. Practice Innovation/Methods: After a literature review and assessment of other institutions' methods, a collaborative group of nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Nurse Practitioners and cardiac catherization lab staff met to evaluate current practice. From this The Discharge Guidelines were developed. The Guidelines were evaluated by the MGH Patient Education Committee to assure readability for patients. The Guidelines were disseminated to all units in the hospital and posted on the hospital intranet. Outcomes: The information was well received and immediately incorporated into practice on our unit and throughout the hospital, as evidenced by the presence of The Guidelines in closed medical records and downloaded from the hospital's intranet site. Interpretation/Conclusion: Nurses throughout the hospital are able to teach their post procedure patients with accurate and complete information and patients receive streamlined written information upon discharge. Implications for Nursing Practice: A collaborative approach to developing patient education tools ensures their comprehensiveness and contributes to its value and utilization. Making such documents available on the intranet offers a reliable means of information to nurses for patient's hospital wide.
