Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: A community hospital collaborates with regional, national, and professional organizations to improve nursing sensitive outcomes through evidence based practice and performance improvement initiatives, and includes a model of care that is based upon clinical expertise, shared governance, research and education. Together these 2 components empower registered nurses to implement changes and establish protocols, policies and standards of care. This presentation will explore how the model of care empowers nurses at this hospital to become engaged in their practice. A key component of this model is a rewards and recognition program known as the C.A.R.E (Clinical Advancement Rewarding Excellence) Ladder in which participating nurses are reimbursed for their clinical expertise and acknowledged for ongoing success in improving patient outcomes. Application and advancement in this program are based upon the Magnet application process and include many of the Forces of Magnetism. This hospital collaborates with various healthcare agencies in various initiatives that have resulted in documented improved patient care outcomes. Examples of these agencies include: The Perinatal Consortium of Ocean and Monmouth Counties, NJ VHA (Volunteer Hospital Association) New Jersey Hospital Association Collaborative for the Prevention of Pressure Ulcers NICHE (Nurses involved in the Care of Hospitalized Elderly) American Association of Critical Care Nurses IHI Examples of collaboration, staff involvement and documented outcomes will be shared. This hospital strongly believes that nurses are the driving force for improving outcomes and as such deserve to be rewarded and recognized.
