Abstract:
The acuity adaptable pilot on a pediatric pulmonary unit was conducted from June until September 2006. The original evaluation plan was based on the outcomes that were demonstrated by the Methodist Hospital, Clarian Health Partners acuity adaptable unit and the desire to test an alternative care model prior to the design of a new Childrens Hospital. The project proposal is for the pilot of a 17 bed, private room, acuity adaptable, pediatric pulmonary unit utilizing an existing 34 bed, semi-private room, medical surgical unit. The objective of the pilot was to provide an alternative care delivery model that will improve patient satisfaction, improve employee satisfaction, decrease the number of patient hand offs and decrease averted medication errors. The results of the pilot were a significant improvement in patient satisfaction with nursing, improvement in employee satisfaction with the work environment, the number of intra-unit transfers were decreased by 93%, wrong patient averted errors were reduced by 48% and wrong dose averted errors were reduced by 33%. In light of the fiscal challenges that most hospitals face today, it is not economically feasible to construct all patient rooms in a facility to meet the criteria for acuity adaptable rooms. However, outcomes that have been demonstrated by this pilot validate the need to consider implementation of the concept in those areas where larger numbers of patients with predictable courses of treatment can be cohorted. This model has been incorporated into the design of the new 36 bed Pediatric Comprehensive Cardiac Unit, opening in 2012
