Abstract:
Peer review of nurses is a formal process in Texas, but exists as an informal process in many state BNEs. Although peer review was established to support nurses in 1987 as part of the Nursing Quality Assurance Act, the general consensus is that it is neither well understood nor well perceived. To determine nursesÆ perceptions of the peer review process, how the process should be designed, and factors related to these perceptions. The framework for this study is derived from the IOM report To Err is Human and the recommendations for error prevention including a focus away from the individual to the system. This is a descriptive study. A packet of questionnaires including demographics, perceptions of the environment for reporting errors, and perceptions of the peer review process and recommendations for revision has been mailed to a random selection of 1% (1400) of the RNs from the Texas BNE roster. This first mailing will be followed with a postcard for nonrespondents and then by a second packet. Descriptive statistics and regression analysis will be used to analyze the data. The findings derived from the questionnaires will include perceptions of the environment for reporting errors, of the current review process, and recommendations for appropriate review. These findings will provide a basis for decisions related to the BNE regulations and for managing error reporting in health care institutions. The study will be complete in March.
