Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Traditional leadership structures frequently utilize a hierarchal ladder with a department director at the top, followed by an assistant director, charge nurses, and staff nurses. Considering the ongoing shortage of nurses, generation X & Y values that place decreased importance on position and title, and floundering staff satisfaction scores, the department director of a busy IV team partnered with patient-side nurses to restructure the department's current management model. The IV team nurses were charged with designing the optimal leadership environment for their department. The resulting model collapsed the traditional ladder into a circle, with each member of the team adding an important link of accountability to the success of the department. Without the traditional top-down approach, nurses needed to be mentored and empowered to assume new responsibilities in the shared circle of leadership. Implementation included: 1) Staff identification of key practice and behavioral accountabilities. 2) Assignment of three Circle Leaders to cover all shifts. 3) Empowerment of Circle Leaders to make real time decisions regarding day-to-day clinical issues, service recovery, and coaching of staff. 4) Weekly meetings between the department director and Circle Leaders to address leadership, conflict resolution, employee satisfaction, and clinical issues. · Education regarding department budget, salary resources, supply management, and inter-departmental collaboration to facilitate decision-making. Outcomes: 1) Patient-side nurses have assumed expanded leadership roles reflective of their personal talents, thus optimizing opportunities for succession planning. 2) The employee satisfaction results for the department went from the 55th percentile to the 92nd percentile within 15 months.
