Abstract:
Transforming care at the bedside (TCAB) research and other initiatives have shown positive outcomes for falls, pressure ulcers and patient satisfaction. Nursing Satisfaction is above the national mean for RN-RN Interaction, Decision Making, RN-MD Interaction, Autonomy, Professional Status and Job Enjoyment. We recognized that sustaining these results required concomitant evolution of our nursing leadership structure and enhancement of our shared governance model. Bedside nurses were ready to assume the responsibility and accountability for all nursing sensitive indicators. We merged Fall, Pressure Ulcer and TCAB teams into a Patient Excellence Team. Team members include the CNO, clinical and quality experts, and Unit-based Practice Council (UPC) chairs. Standing agenda items include all outcome indicators (RN vacancy and turnover rates, falls, pressure ulcers, and patient satisfaction). To support this work, the UPC chairs are given a workshop day on the first Thursday of each month. The day consists of attending the Nursing Professional Practice Council meeting, carrying out follow-up activities, attending the Patient Excellence Team meeting to report progress with outcome measures, networking with peers and holding UPC meetings on their respective units. Further support and development are provided through restructuring of nursing leadership to include the roles of Nurse Manager (focused on administrative duties) and Clinical Nurse Leader (focused on patient care, clinical outcomes and integration of evidence-based practice at the bedside). Nurse directors serve as mentors and focus on strategic priorities. Our goal is that nurses at all levels will lead, transform care, motivate staff, manage change and build effective teams.
