Abstract:
Paper Presentation: When a clinician is "present", they are truly hearing what is being said by the patient, family and one another, rather than hearing it filtered through their own past experiences and/or expectations. We have created a healing environment that enhances the "presence" of staff. Interventions explored were easily integrated into practice. Individuals receive beads and cards for going "above and beyond". Pastoral care provides insight on spirituality at educational sessions. Communication tools are provided to increase staff confidence in assessing and talking about spirituality, with the patient and their families. "Passage Quilts" are provided to patients that are actively dying. A "Comfort Cart" containing writing journals, battery operated candles, aromatherapy, and music, provides staff resources, based on the needs and wishes of the patient and family. Press Ganey patient satisfaction surveys are used to look at results. Areas are: staff addressed the spiritual needs of the patient (increased 2003 to 2005), and overall rating of hospital care (increased on Unit A 2003 to 2005). The Press Ganey End-of-Life satisfaction survey results that were looked at: Compassion of the nurses and physicians, how well the patient /family felt supported if visited by pastoral care, and overall rating of care (all increased 2003 to 2005) Two sections of the Medical Unit were involved with this project. Unit A has adopted this model more readily that Unit B. A team of nurses, from Unit B, is seeking out mentors from Unit A to plan on next steps for integrating spirituality into their practice.
