Abstract:
In a recent webinar conference, only 28 % of institutions have a nursing peer review (NPR) process in place. The NPR process is an innovation for improving quality of patient care that supports the goals of the Magnet Recognition Program. The purpose of the NPR as determined by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is to evaluate whether or not the nurses conduct is reportable to the Board. NPR process helps identify incompetent, unsafe, or unprofessional nursing conduct. It also evaluates system issues that may have contributed to the incident. The NPR committee includes staff nurses, managers, a nursing peer, and advance practice nurses. The nursing peer is a nurse who has a working familiarity in the area of the nurse being reviewed. This structure enables nurses from different levels to participate in making recommendations. The ThinkReliability approach to Cause Mapping is utilized to determine why the incident occurred. The analysis step of the process is driven by evidenced- based cause-and-effect relationships. If the NPRC finds no system issues, and that the nurses conduct is reportable, the nurse will be held accountable for their practice. If the NPRC determines that the nurses conduct is beyond their control and external factors were identified, the committee makes recommendations for system changes to the Chief Nursing Officer and the Patient Safety Subcommittee. NPR is an effective process to improve patient care quality and safety and to afford nurses with a fair and equitable system of peer evaluation when nursing practice comes into question.
