Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In preparation for Magnet status, we challenged ourselves to improve the Patient Services Division Performance Improvement Program. The decentralized nursing departments were all active submitters to the ANA-NDNQI, other professional organizations, and participated in the hospital quality council, but the Division's means of measurement and communication was disjointed. We identified a need for a more effective, efficient, consensus process to consistently evaluate processes to achieve excellent nursing care. Thanks to the guidance or our CNO we used the National Quality Forum's (NQF) Nursing Care Measures and Donabedian's rubrics of quality measurement as a framework for our journey to achieve nursing excellence. We then developed Unit Based Quality Teams, Division Nursing Quality Committees, and the Nursing Quality Council with staff represented at all levels. Implementation required more time, education, and communication then we anticipated. We identified the following strategies for implementation: 1) develop the communication loop, 2) consensus on indicator measures, 3) determine collection strategies which included Patient Care and Safety peer audits involving all staff RNs, 4) develop data collection tools which required nurse manager, clinician, and RN staff education, 5) collaborate with other departments for data collection, 6) develop a system for sharing data, in a means understood by the staff RN's. Ultimately, data presentation was formalized using Quality Boards that would contain current information regarding individual unit's process improvements, hospital wide endeavors, evidence-based practices, and the NQF's Nursing Sensitive Measures. These strategies so inspired us that we recently achieved ANA's Magnet status, and 11 JCAHO Disease Specific Certifications. References: ANA.
