Abstract:
In 2004, following a series of tragic pediatric deaths and significant incidents, two Emergency Nurses implemented a Critical Incident Stress Management Team in their department. Since then, through extensive education and by demonstrating effectiveness in multiple CISM interventions in a variety of clinical areas, the value of CISM has become apparent throughout the organization. Individuals who have benefitted from CISM interventions have expressed that the process is "life/career saving". CISM is peer driven with administrative support. It is not just for the critical care nurse, nor the emergency department nurse, rather for every nurse and every staff member involved in a critical incident. Critical incidents come in many different faces, impacting each individual differently, depending upon where they are emotionally, professionally, and physically. With the assistance of our pastoral care, the CISM Team has changed the thought process regarding staff needs and interventions following a significant event. The intervention process is response driven rather than event driven. It allows closure to and validation of a critical incident. We are NOT supposed to just deal with our stress; we ARE supposed to support and help our work family get through it so that they may return to their "new normal" productively. This presentation describes the steps taken to achieve our goal and the lessons learned throughout the process.
