Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Tired of working in silos? Do you ever wonder how to move the needle towards excellence in sustaining high quality care? Changing a culture to make a lasting impact on patient outcomes is a challenge for most hospitals. Learn how a 388-bed community hospital developed a successful multi-disciplinary team approach, which has transformed care in a 12-bed Medical Intensive Care Unit. Discover how this multi-disciplinary team was able to transform care and improve patient outcomes, through a dedicated physician champion, strong nursing leadership, and collaborative relations with ancillary disciplines. Other keys to success include being innovative as to how to engage all disciplines and then how to celebrate those successes. Specific efforts in the past year have focused on hand hygiene practices, a daily debriefing with all members of the team, and standardization of care based on evidence. Outcomes include zero ventilator associated pneumonias, zero central line associated bacteremias, and a 35% improvement in hand hygiene compliance. An added benefit is development of a more cohesive work group with staff who are more highly engaged and satisfied with their jobs as evident by improved satisfaction scores.
