Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: In order to address the increasing demand for critical care services in our aging patient population and to leverage our decreasing workforce of specially trained critical care staff, we have been utilizing a proprietary concept, the "eICU". The eICU is part of a system-wide program built on a powerful technology infrastructure that improves quality, operating efficiency and safety while providing around-the-clock access to an expert team of critical care physicians and nurses. Hundreds of patients can be assessed and monitored from a remote eICU facility linked to the ICU via telemedicine and computers. As impressive as the technology is, without the collaborative work environment that embraces the eICU as part of the treatment team, the potential of improved patient outcomes may not be fully realized. This presentation will focus on the role of the eICU from the perspective of a Magnet organization. Nurses as teachers and mentors are elemental in the forces of Magnetism. Patient safety and best practice is a driver of ongoing professional development. Interventions tracked from the eICU have demonstrated a significant role for the eICU RN in the teaching and mentoring of less experienced staff. Given the resource predictions, the ability to mentor and develop our next generation of critical care practitioners becomes vital to the success of the health care system. The eICU is positioned to play a pivotal role in improving and maintaining patient safety and quality in the next challenging decades.
