Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Merging Magnet Forces and Technology to Maximize Productivity A Magnet designated 5 hospital system leveraged a creative partnership between Nursing, Information Systems, Human Resources, Finance, the Staffing Office and Shared Governance Committees to sustain and grow our Magnet culture through a staffing, scheduling and productivity initiative. Over the past two years, we have implemented new technology that provides data to support staff nurses, charges nurses and nursing leadership in making decisions regarding professional practice, care delivery and resource allocation. This presentation will provide a cross walk between the initiative and three Magnet Forces: # 1 Quality of nursing leadership # 4 Personnel policies and programs # 5 Professional models of care. Five project goals were determined with input from all levels of nursing staff and leadership: 1. Improve satisfaction with schedules 2. Reduce floating 3. Balance patient assignments 4. Achieve hours of care 5. Reduce leadership time in staffing and scheduling functions. Project outcomes to date include: 1. Improved balance with patient assignments 2 Improvement with achieving hours of care Process outcomes include: 1. Nursing supervisors and charge nurses using acuity indices when making resource decisions. 2. Using a computerized display of the on-line nurse assignment center and patient classification screen during daily bed meeting to optimize staffing. 3. Making nurse assignments based on intensity and workload rather than each nurse having the same number of patients. 4. Self scheduling by staff nurses that demonstrates an understanding of hours of care.
