Abstract:
Poster Presentation: As a Magnet designated five-hospital health caresystem, we used the principles and theories of the Magnet Forces to transform a fledgling PICC program. By empowering nursing staff to transform processes, we optimized current resources to increase volumes by 250%, reach new quality benchmarks, and optimize patient throughput. I. PROBLEM: The PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) program was inserting only 80 PICCs per month with success rates of 62%; however, national practice guidelines for a 1000 bed health system should have been 250 per month with at least 85% success rates: Technology was being under utilized; Staff had outdated skills and knowledgebase; Quality and productivity benchmarks were undefined; There were no formal screen processes for patients; and Physicians were not utilizing the service optimally. II. IMPLEMENTATION-Staff Driven: Staff were empowered to make the PICC program their own and establish new processes and goals: Employee behavioral and teamwork standards were set by the staff; Staff defined productivity standards; Staff became educators of their practice to patients, physicians, and other nursing staff; and Technology was optimized: i. Staff received advanced training on radiological interpretation of chest x-rays; iv. Computer generated x-ray capability was added to the department; v. Ultrasound technology was defined as practice standard by staff. III. OUTCOMES: Volumes increased over 250%; Turnaround times from order to insertion were but by 50%; Success rates rose from 68% to 92%; and Employee satisfaction increased 40%.
