Abstract:
Everyday we face the challenge of preparing our patients for discharge. With decreasing length of stay for post partum patients and increasing regulatory requirements for newborn discharge, a redesign of our teaching methods became our focus. A committee of staff nurses explored strategies to meet the expectations of our patients and the organization. The group reviewed present practice, regulatory requirements and standards of care. By gaining input from their peers, the group highlighted the goals for the program. As the group reviewed their findings, four consistent themes were identified. All staff developed consensus for: streamlining documentation, decreasing the time to discharge, improving the quality of our education and individualizing patient teaching. A patient needs assessment was developed to include post partum and newborn care teaching. The assessment was formatted as a teaching record for both the patient and nursing staff to document items to teach. The educational packet for the patient was reorganized to correspond with line items on the teaching record. To implement the new plan, all staff received education regarding the teaching tool and documentation. On admission, patients are now given the needs assessment to identify what they already know and what additional learning they may need. The nurse now reviews the tool with the patient to align their needs with teaching goals. Clinical Outcomes influenced by the program include: patient satisfaction as measured by Press Ganey scores and registered nurse satisfaction as measured by the annual NDNQI RN satisfaction survey results.
