Abstract:
Morbidity and Mortality (M & M) conferences have traditionally been used within medical specialties to review quality of care issues. The same format has been recommended for use by nurses however a survey of Magnet hospitals revealed few formalized programs. The Chief Nursing Officer asked the Nursing Director for Quality and the Nursing Patient Safety Officer to facilitate Nursing M & M Conferences for the entire Department of Nursing. The purpose of the Nursing M & M Conference is to peer review sentinel or near miss patient events that are associated with nursing practice or actions. The focus is on system and educational issues and not on individual errors. Cases are solicited from leadership, clinical risk management, Unit-Based Patient Safety Officers and the event reporting system. Events are presented in a case study format. They are confidential and include only deidentified information. Following the brief case presentation a facilitator leads the discussion on system issues and the group recommends any process improvements. Identified issues are sent to the Nursing Quality Council for review and follow-up. Follow-up has included nurse led multidisciplinary projects which will be described during the abstract presentation. The Nursing M & M Conferences have demonstrated good attendance by staff nurses and leadership and have seen continued interest by an increasing number of cases sent for consideration.
