Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Magnet Foundation for a Coordinated Stroke Center Coordinated stroke care is essential to promote patient access to the full range of activities and services associated with stroke prevention, acute stroke treatment and management and rehabilitation. Guided by JCAHO Stroke Care Recommendations and American Stroke Association Guidelines, our hospital achieved JCAHO Stroke Center certification four years ago. Being a Magnet hospital, it is evident that the 14 Magnet Forces are the foundation and continue to be the building blocks for our successful stroke center. Administrative support is one of several vital links. Quality nursing leadership continues to support, develop and motivate our nursing staff. Nurses view themselves accountable for patients and have developed and implemented specific stroke protocols and patient education. A proactive approach to quality improvement is daily practice and nurses are directly involved in case reviews, data input, analysis and dissemination of outcome data. Interdisciplinary Stroke Rounds occur weekly and are facilitated by neurological nurses. Community Outreach programs, also coordinated by nursing, are an extension of the stroke center and embrace several diverse populations: Stroke Risk Assessments, community lectures, EMS education seminars, and health fairs. Professional growth and nursing education are ongoing processes. Creative strategies have been developed by staff to enhance nursing education. Stroke support groups are facilitated by nurses once a month. Four new, cutting edge rehabilitation therapies were proposed this year by nursing and have been implemented. Current membership on state committees demonstrates nursing commitment to improve stroke care at our hospital and in our state.
