Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The Chief Nursing Officer and SG executive council felt that there was a need for a formal structure to review nursing care, and track associated outcomes that currently did not exist within the organization. A work group within the Quality Improvement council was tasked with creating a nursing incident based peer review (IBPR) process and structure. A review of the literature revealed very little regarding the utilization of nursing IBPR, outside of certain states where it is required by the board of nursing. Therefore, a medical peer review format was utilized that focused on the nursing process. The group felt strongly that the IBPR process should provide a mechanism for nurses within the organization to express their concerns using the nursing process as the foundation. The referral criterion is simple: if a nurse has a concern that an unexpected outcome occurred due to an alteration in the nursing process then the case is appropriate for referral. The work group developed an educational program that was presented to nursing leadership, shared governance councils and nursing staff to kick off the IBPR process. Initially, staff voiced concerns regarding the process, but as cases were presented and nurses heard of lessons learned they understood that this was an avenue for them to own their practice. In 2009, 10 cases were reviewed by the committee. Specific themes emerged from the cases reviewed that led to significant nursing process changes in multiple clinical areas including IV therapy, mental health patient safety, pain assessment and documentation.
