Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: As society becomes more reliant on the expanding use of technology, healthcare organizations are challenged to address its appropriateness in the workplace. Staff engagement in technology assumed for personal use can negatively influence patient and family perceptions of care quality. The Nursing Professional Excellence Council (NPEC) at one Magnet facility developed a Technology Position Statement (TPS) to address appropriate use of current and emerging technology in the patient care environment. As NPECs mission is to provide direction on issues related to nursing professionalism, the image of nursing, and professional expectations, discussions naturally arose concerning personal use of technology in the workplace. A broad spectrum of opinions surfaced ranging from never appropriate to a vital component of everyday life. Adding to the controversy, the organization is utilizing these resources for marketing, recruitment, and education. Through candid discussion, and consultation with Human Resources, a consensus emerged that technology will continue to infiltrate the workplace. NPEC needed to set forth expectations and provide guidance on its use. A subcommittee of direct care nurses developed TPS to addresses the use of cell phones, iPods/MP3 Players, internet and social networking. The statement focuses on appropriate use of these items while maintaining a positive perception with patients and families. TPS has made nurses more aware that patient care is impacted not only by clinical competence but also by professional perceptions of patients and families. The positive image portrayed with implementation of TPS has prompted our allied health partners to adopt these expectations as well.
