Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Staff nurses are the key to improving quality in patient care. The presentation focuses on engagement of the staff nurse in the nurse sensitive indicators analysis, improvement activities, and integration of quality into the practice culture. ABSTRACT: Hospitals have long struggled with how to create a culture of quality. The "work of quality" has tended to reside primarily in a quality department and/or with a committee. The challenge has been how to engage all staff in quality as a part of what and how we work. For true quality outcomes can not be realized without active participation and focus by all direct care nurses. A unique structure for nursing quality will be described that integrated quality at the unit and department level into the shared governance councils instead of a separate quality council. Expectations for all levels were developed and reflected in the performance review process. Strategies for dissemination of data, staff engagement and communication were developed. These included an on line data source that all staff can access; a computerized action plan that is available to view all nursing PI projects; and multiple methods to share the nurse sensitive indicators. Educational challenges and lessons learned will be shared. Examples of the impact of staff nurse work in quality will be highlighted.
