Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The Innovation Unit was created to increase the patient, employee, and physician satisfaction scores including boosting the moral of the healthcare providers. In collaboration with an interdisciplinary team, the unit was created by the Staff, Nurse Manger, the Director of Medical-Surgical inpatient units, as well as two Hospitalists. The Innovation Unit is a specialized interdisciplinary medical-surgical unit used to trial, evaluate, and develop best practices in technology, nursing, interdisciplinary care, and medicine. Putting patients first by using the latest healthcare innovations is the focus of this unit. The goal on the unit is to disseminate these best practices in the organization and ultimately to the System hospitals. A best practice can be a new piece of technology trialed by patients and nurses, a new program, teaching tool, or medical technique. The staff on that unit is specially chosen to be innovators and must be willing to try new things and tolerate fast-paced change. This has satisfied an interest in many younger and newer nurses who like to be on the cutting edge. Outcomes data is carefully monitored to see how well innovations are being received by both the staff and patients. Examples of the innovations trialed by the unit include patient activity carts, blanket warmer, digital screens for patient education, a unit-based pharmacist, illuminated safety handrails, access to computerized medical records for the patients and their care givers, and unique strategies that have proven to increase HCAHPS scores. This unit has been successful and has improved efficiency in our organization
