Abstract:
In 2007, the Nursing Quality Improvement Committee recognized that documentation of two quality indicators, Communication of Critical Test Results to Care Provider, and Reassessment after PRN Pain Administration, was suboptimal. Despite concentrated efforts to improved compliance through unit-based education, compliance remained low. As a result, the indicators were identified as two of the six top nursing quality priorities for 2008 and through the support of the Chief Nursing Officer and the Vice-President of Quality Management, a higher level of organizational resources were approved. A small steering group for each project was convened to critically analyze the data, to identify the problem statement and to establish the scope and goals of the project. Once the groundwork was established, two separate teams composed of front-line staff nurses were recruited. Each champion represented a separate unit and possessed a special interest in quality outcomes. Using their expertise and knowledge, the nurses were empowered to identify the barriers to practice and subsequent documentation, to select priorities themes on which to focus, to brainstormed innovative solutions for each priority, and to create a short- and long-term implementation plan. Empowering the staff nurse to embrace the responsibility to design processes to improve compliance and quality outcomes cultivated a sense of ownership and pride to achieve sustained results.
