Abstract:
The Chest Pain Accreditation process recognizes early symptoms, efficient and effective diagnosis and ongoing treatment that contributes to improved patient outcomes. A strategy of education and empowerment of Emergency Medical Services, ANW Emergency Department Nursing staff, Minneapolis Heart Institute, and other medical professionals was created to capture the appropriate population and develop treatment plans. Since implementation we have seen decreasing wait times for door to EKG (7 minutes), Troponin turn around (15 min),door- to- test (echocardiogram, Thallium study, graded exercise test) or cardiac catheterization ( 42 min). In addition to our Chest Pain Accreditation ANW ED and MHI developed the "level one" program to efficiently manage patients with an acute MI. After Level One is called the Emergency Department Nurses implement orders and prepare patient for an interventional procedure in cath lab. Nursing process is utilized which ensures an interdisciplinary approach capturing all aspects of quality patient care. Our initial goal was a 90-min door to balloon time as recommended by Joint Commission. As a result of an ongoing process of both Nursing and Interdisciplinary education, as well as training and performance improvements, this time has been reduced to 42 minutes. The collaboration and commitment of our cardiovascular team continues to make us a leader. By inspiring and achieving the best practices we recognize the importance of a stringent process ensuring continuing utilization of an integrated team.
