Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Our suburban community hospital set a goal to create a triangular dialogue of pertinent health care information and planning between the patients, nurse, and physician in order to close the gap on communication issues. Building on the infrastructure of our current electronic medical record, an interdisciplinary team was formed, including our IT department, to develop a patient friendly tool with a "CARE" plan to use as a guide for Communication, Access to information, Resources, and Education. IT created a daily report based on the patient's current orders utilizing the nursing kardex. The "CARE" plan format translates the orders into laymen's terms. The primary nurse then reviews the "CARE" plan with the patient and places it in a binder for the patient to keep and share with family if desired. The "CARE" plan consists of primary and consulting physicians, diagnostic testing with a brief description, scheduled medications, advanced directive status and appropriate support service plans. By utilizing this approach we have been able to open up dialogue between the patient and the healthcare team to foster a safer clinical environment. We have been successful in our goal to keep the patient informed as demonstrated by our patient satisfaction scores. As a result, our patients have become more knowledgeable about his/her plan of care resulting in a higher quality of care delivery. References: Goodman, J. R, (2004).
