Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Hospitals throughout the United States are faced with unexpected deaths, fatal errors, patient dissatisfaction, nursing dissatisfaction and increasing nursing shortages. Research has shown that registered nurses spend only 30-40 % of their time at the bedside. In addition, 35-40% of unexpected deaths occur on medical/surgical units. These alarming statistics were the impetus for a nation-wide research initiative called Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB), funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and supported by Ascension Health, the largest not-for-profit Catholic health care system in the United States and the Institute for Health Care Improvement. Aims of this project include improving patient and nursing satisfaction through patient and family centered work redesign that is timely, safe, spiritual and evidenced based; promoting a supportive and collaborative working environment through effective care teams that encourage new ideas and share decision making; achieving positive patient outcomes; and celebrating failures as well as successes. Evaluation includes the following baseline and ongoing measures: time and motion studies; satisfaction surveys completed by members of all disciplines including nurses, nurse aides, physicians, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, and housekeeping; fall, pressure ulcer and adverse drug event rates; RN vacancy rate; staff turnover rate; patient satisfaction scores; and nursing hours per patient day. Outcomes achieved include, but are not limited to: Decreased fall rate; pressure ulcer rate less than 0.0040; no adverse drug events; RN vacancy rate remaining at 0; decreased voluntary staff turnover rate; and increased patient satisfaction.
