Abstract:
This presentation will report successful efforts that engaged Registered Nurses as quality leaders in an Emergency Department setting. The role of the Registered Nurse was developed and implemented, achieving 98-100% compliance to national AMI, CHF, and CAP Core Measures standards. Nursing care processes specific to these care protocols will be discussed. Care processes were developed with participation of the ED Registered Nurse and tested with successful outcomes, including the reduction of CT scan turn around time, the multidisciplinary restructuring of the ED waiting room area, and a Transforming Care At the Bedside Test of Change of a two-tier triage system. Additionally, the development of Fast Track and ED overflow area processes, and a care delivery model for the Psychiatric patient were implemented and will be discussed. These process improvements have resulted in faster identification and treatment of the AMI and stroke patient, improved throughput, while providing a more supportive care environment. The quality leadership of the Registered Nurse also contributed to the development of an ED split shift staffing model that has reduced cost and increased effectiveness. Our experience in the Emergency Department suggests strategies to develop and foster nursing quality champions in this setting and other non-inpatient care areas.
