Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Though significant advances have been taken towards improving nursing unit design and care delivery models, there has been very little consideration given to how hospital leadership should incorporate clinical informatics and architectural solutions with existing or new nursing unit layouts so that the environment of care optimizes care delivery. Consequently, there has been little or no research that explores the full context of meaningful use including nursing unit layout, clinical informatics, care delivery and patient outcomes. Recent research of healthcare environments has been validating design solutions (e.g., decentralized nursing stations) that realize the Institute of Medicines Six Quality Aims. Of this research, field studies of nursing units have taken a comprehensive approach wherein the entire layout of a nursing unit and its operations can be evaluated for its impact on safety, quality performance metrics and components of clinical information system (CIS) design. Our three-phased research study has revealed statistically significant relationships among nursing station design, inpatient room design features, clinical informatics, staff efficiency, clinical operations, work distractions, patient education, and patient outcomes. These results have led to design concepts for nursing units that have the potential to advance professional practice, enhance patient care and advance meaningful use. On a larger scale, the research could offer a model for patient care delivery, evidenced based environment of care design and influence the guidelines for design and construction of health care facilities.
