Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Nurse accountability to perform the role of the professional nurse is a core component of our nursing professional practice model. Over the past two years, a structured process has been implemented to review nurse-sensitive patient care outcomes. C.A.R.E.S. (Collegiality, Accountability, Respect, Evidence and Safety) Peer Review Program now meets twice a month. A bedside nurse is assigned by the manager to evaluate the nursing care provided related to a nurse-sensitive outcome case using a peer review template tool. The cases presented include: hospital acquired pressure ulcers, falls with injury, DVT, aspiration pneumonia, cardiopulmonary arrests related to 12 hours preceding the event, nosocomial UTI and single event cases. Nursing leaders, Risk Manager, CNSs, educators and resource nurses attend the meetings to provide support for rapid cycle action addressing barriers to care, systems issues and educational needs. Lessons have been learned related to structure and process: the C.A.R.E.S environment is a safe, learning environment for the bedside nurse; the nurse completing the case review learns about their unit practices and has opportunity to reflect on their own nursing practice; and peer review facilitates achievement of PI target goals. Outcomes of peer review highlight continuity of caregivers and effective handoffs are essential. C.A.R.E.S. Peer Review has engaged bedside nurses in seeking solutions to improve patient care and has identified excellent nursing practices when providing care for acute care complex patients.
