Abstract:
Poster Presentation: All hospitals, especially Magnet institutions, must continually monitor staff performance to meet multiple structure, process, and outcome care delivery standards, including performance criteria from credentialing, accreditation, and/or regulatory agencies (e.g. JCAHO, Magnet). Nursing leadership and staff play a critical role in ongoing monitoring and auditing to assure compliance with these many regulatory requirements as well as missions to deliver safe, timely, cost effective, quality patient care. This presentation will describes a process modeled after the Hospital's Incident Management System (HIMS) to prepare for JCAHO unannounced surveys that can be adapted for use in preparing for Magnet site visits. Presenters cover the creation of role specific "Job Action Cards" in Nursing and other Hospital departments to facilitate departmental/institutional response to ongoing survey readiness. Presenters discuss the role of unit staff and leadership in meeting professional and regulatory agency expectations on an ongoing basis and how Job Action Cards are vehicles to communicate and address issues needing change. Because nursing staff performance encompasses many different requirements (e.g. patient assessment, interventions and documentation expectations) within an interdisciplinary work setting, a mechanism for monitoring each of these is needed. The Job Action Cards can be used to prepare staff for imminent surveys, unannounced surveys, and as a tool to audit ongoing patient care delivery requirements. The Job Action Cards are excellent resources that provide efficient use of manpower during the survey and to communicate expectations of staff/leadership. Job Action Cards foster teamwork and interdisciplinary communication to avoid duplication with preparation activities.
