Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Background: Patient safety and patient satisfaction with care have become key outcomes in a transparent health care environment (Ching-I Teng et al, 2009). Specialties such as joint replacements are popular with an active aging population and attractive to a younger generation who needs a long term solution for joint pain. This specialty population represents a high risk category for adverse outcomes, namely falls. Purpose: The purpose of this evidenced-based project is to utilize multi-source data analysis as the compass in designing interventions to improve quality outcomes, specifically patient falls with injury. Methods: A multidisciplinary team utilized national data bases and compared the study unit to like units nationally. Comparative analysis over a 2 year period reviewed number of falls with injury, patient scores for satisfaction with assistance to the bathroom and hypotensive episodes in post-operative patients. Financial analysis consisted of averaging the direct cost per patient fall with injury. Data sources utilized were risk management fall reports, NDNQI: nursing quality comparison scores, HCAHPS: national patient satisfaction comparison scores, MedAI: patient complications, specifically iatrogenic hypotension and TSI: financial tracking software. Results/Outcomes: A 15% improvement ranking was achieved in the NDNQI ranking for falls with injury. Cost savings of $5,000 to $7,000 per patient fall with injury has been realized since the start of the study. Early detection and treatment of hypotensive episodes was identified as a key contributor to prevent falls. Implications for Practice: A multidisciplinary approach to data analysis was identified as the critical component to effective prevention strategies.
