Abstract:
According to the American Heart Association, over 550,000 new cases of Heart Failure are diagnosed each year.There has been a National focus on Heart Failure diagnosis and treatment. There is now a mandate for most institutions to achieve early recognition, treatment and discharge instruction for patients being discharged with Heart Failure. This presentation will address issues identified with an interdisciplinary approach to identification and instruction for patients being discharged with Heart Failure. A problem was identified in meeting our benchmark for this objective. Because Heart Failure may not have been the primary diagnosis and because comorbidities could be documented in multiple places in the medical record,it was difficult for the nurse to identify which patients required education prior to discharge. A system was developed to generate reports on all potential Heart Failure patients within the institution and guidelines were developed for the nurse in screening the medical record. An identification system was derived to alert the Cardiology Educators that the patients required instructions prior to discharge. Our results indicated a greater than 50% improvment and education of Heart Failure patients during the initial 3 years. We are now at 91% compliance exceeding the benchmark.
