Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The dream of our Assistant Vice President of Nursing was realized with the full implementation and evaluation of the Nursing Department process for nursing case peer review. After extensive fact-finding, literature review, policy and process development and staff education, nursing case peer review was initiated as a function of the Nursing Performance Improvement (PI) Council at this Magnet hospital. Because Pennsylvania has Peer Review Protection for physicians only, careful consideration was paid to confidentiality and the recommendations of legal counsel. Council members were educated and signed confidentiality agreements. All nursing staff received education via multiple formats to explain the purpose and benefits. The focus of case review is educational and proactive. Opportunities for process and system improvements are identified and reported to the appropriate leadership. Action plans are developed and follow-up is conducted. If an individual performance issue is identified, it is referred to that individual's manager for follow-up outside the involvement of the council. Over the course of numerous reviews, council members have learned much about areas of nursing practice within the organization that were previously unfamiliar to them. Additionally, thoughtful consideration and novel ideas have emerged from the discussion of the cases to aid in the development of recommendations. The outcomes of the reviews are evaluated annually. While the specific cases cannot be discussed beyond the Council, recommendations have been made from PI Council to other Nursing Shared Decision-Making Councils that have led to policy revisions and educational opportunities.
