Abstract:
Paper Presentation: While many hospitals continue to strive toward achieving this distinguished recognition, many are also asking what value this actually brings to an organization. As our staff prepared for re-designation as a Magnet hospital, we evaluated key qualitative and quantitative criteria associated with this accomplishment. Data analyzed include employee satisfaction, nursing satisfaction, patient/family satisfaction, RN vacancy rate, RN turnover rate, and specific nursing sensitive quality indicators. Additionally, the cost of creating and sustaining Magnet recognition as well as cost avoidance and collateral benefits will be reviewed. Magnet recognition as had a significant impact on the practice environment within the institution in numerous ways. The ability to recruit "the best and the brightest" has led to better job fit and a significant reduction in turnover among the nursing staff as well as improved job satisfaction, reduction in temporary labor use and the elimination of vacancies in most areas. The impact on staff morale has spilled over to patient/family satisfaction which also has experienced improvement in key nursing sensitive measures, such as Overall satisfaction with nursing, Satisfaction with pain management and Satisfaction with discharge instructions. As our staff approached re-designation they were inspired by the progress we have made since first designated as a Magnet hospital. It is important to link efforts with measurable outcomes to keep an organizational focus clear. As Magnet designation continues to grow, organizations will need to be able to quantify their return on investment. In a competitive environment we all strive to distinguish our practice from others. ANCC Magnet Recognition for Nursing Excellence has become a key initiative to accomplish this objective. It is a statement about the culture of the organization and the value and support that is provided to the bedside staff nurse.
