Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Communication on a large inpatient medical/surgical unit is essential for staff collaboration and workflow. Staff access to annual goals, patient outcome documents, and important information assist in getting work done. This unit was the first within a large hospital system to develop a unit web site within the organization's web browser to meet these needs. The web site includes the unit's mission and vision, minutes from all staff meetings and annual competencies and guidelines for performance review. Links within the site identify mandatory education requirements. The website also contains the information regarding the Shared Governance Leadership on the unit and a method of giving feedback. The site was created in 2003 with the assistance of the Information Systems department. Ongoing service is available from the Web Administrator. All members of the unit: RNs, CNAs, Nurse Externs, and Health Unit Coordinators have access to the site and are expected to read information from the site at least once per month. Staff has indicated in internal evaluations that there is a high degree of satisfaction with access to pertinent information. Future plans include expanding the ability of the Unit Council chair to poll staff opinions and create ballots for voting.
