Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Remember the build up of excitement for your first Magnet designation? Will there be the same level of enthusiasm for your redesignation? Does enculturation of the Forces of Magnetism affect how staff interacts with the appraisers? This presentation will highlight the experience of preparing for Magnet redesignation from the decision of whether to move forward toward redesignation to the experience of the site visit. Magnet Champions found that in order to have continued support by hospital leadership, they needed examine the costs and benefits of Magnet designation vs other types of designations such as the Baldridge National Quality Award. Magnet Champions also found that less time was needed for education even though there was staff that had not experienced a site visit before. Staff easily articulated how the Forces of Magnetism were operationalized, often stating that it was just their "way of doing business" within the organization. Our institution prepared for a three day site visit utilizing a multitude of communication tools to fit the varied needs of our staff. The hospital intranet, employee newsletter articles, and posters were used to encourage initial discussions regarding the upcoming site visit. Content included broad topics such as review of nursing philosophy, governance structure, and strategic plan. As the site visit approached, mock survey meetings and clinical unit tours fanned the fire of enthusiasm for the site visit.
