Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: A commitment to prevention in the context of evidence-based patient care led to participation as one of 22 members in the Children's Healthcare Corporation of America (CHCA): Eliminating Codes and Associated Mortality on Inpatient Units collaborative and one of six Ohio Children's Hospital Association (OCHA) members in the Preventing Cardiac and Respiratory Arrests Project. The CHCA national collaborative provided evidence based initiatives based on early prevention, detection and correction of patient deterioration. Review of strongly ranked evidence revealed that resuscitation outcomes improve when performed in critical care settings; not general care units. An Eliminating Codes Committee, chaired by an advanced practice nurse, provided an organization-wide interdisciplinary team structure to implement recommended best practices using foundational, mid-level and advanced strategies. The OCHA Collaborative provided a state-wide structure for Ohio children's hospitals to collaborate and benchmark progress on the initiatives. This first-of-its kind effort saves children's lives by improving recognition and response time to patient deterioration which improves the quality of care at children's hospitals in a meaningful, measurable way. This hospital was one of three hospitals in the collaborative to receive the highest possible score; representing significant, sustainable improvement efforts to reduce codes. In the first year the target units reduced Code Blues by 35% and culture of safety indicators increased by more than 5% based on a national safety culture survey completed by staff. In 2009, all general care units had reduced Code Blues by nearly 90%.
