Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Standardizing practice in a tertiary care hospital for children creates a culture of confidence. Parent and staff dissatisfaction around the care of children with gastrostomies led to the formation of a task force to address standardization of practice. Standardizing practice and education gives a family confidence in the nurses caring for their child no matter where their child is in the hospital system. Staff nurses representing all inpatient areas and advanced practice nurses met to identify current practices and problems. A written pretest and bedside interviews were used to identify current variations in practice and staff education needs. A parent survey was used to measure parent comfort and satisfaction, or lack of, with the current level of education provided to families. Standards of care were then written based on an extensive review of literature and identified best practices. Parent information sheets were written for each device detailing use, care and trouble shooting. Written and on line tools were developed for staff to facilitate easy access to information on skin integrity, types and uses of devices, and home care needs. Mandatory education for nurses and physicians was presented in an electronic, self-guided format. Traveling displays were presented on units to allow direct visualization and manipulation of devices as well as review of written education materials for families and documentation. Staff knowledge was measured after completion of electronic education modules. A second parent survey was conducted after staff education was complete to assess for changes in parent comfort in caring for their child and satisfaction with education received.
