  • Physician Practices: over 79 physicians in primary care and specialty care

  • 2,200 team members

Session Learning Objectives

  • Discuss how to incorporate Leader Rounding into practice.

  • Outline the steps to implement a successful Leader Rounding program.

  • Identify the outcomes impacted by Leader Rounding.

P D C A (Plan, Do, Check, Act)Quality Improvement Model

  • PLAN-How should the problem be tackled? Address issues surrounding problem.

  • DO-Implementation of the plan.

  • CHECK-How will the team know the plan is working? What data must be collected? Test.

  • ACT-How to best go forward? Redesign? Evaluation Step.

Plan the Improvement

  • HCAHPS scores unfavorably decreased in August 2011 and based on drop negatively impacted 2011 YTD scores

    • Maternity HCAHPS-90th percentile

    • Med/Surg HCAHPS drive overall Camden HCAHPS

  • Approached VP and Assistant Administration at Camden to gain support for addressing solution in September 2011

  • Situation discussed at October 2011 Camden Patient Care & Safety Committee (oversight for quality at operations level) with managers from clinical and non-clinical areas

Do the Improvement

  • Developed standardized process (who, what, where, when) for rounding on Med/Surg floor

  • Presented at next Leadership meeting with forms

  • Folder on shared drive (access by all leaders) with forms and calendar for leaders to self-schedule

  • Leaders agreed to pilot for three months and measure improvement

Who: Patients admitted within last day and

those scheduled for discharge next day

What: Rounding using standard Rounding Form and

follow-up on issues identified & turn in form to

Admin Sec

When: Leader to pick two days in Month (Mon-Fri)

Where: Med/Surg

When: You may round anytime but morning may be

better so if there are concerns you still have

an opportunity to address same day

Leader Rounding Pilot

Leader Rounding Early Wins

  • Supplement to bedside nurse hourly rounding and nurse manager rounding

  • Admin Rounding (VP, Assistant Administrator, Quality Director) discussed Leader Rounding with team members and the early outcomes

  • Pulled HCAHPS based on discharge date to see if scores improved

  • Camden Leaders seen as early adopters and setting the standard for System rounding

Check Leader Rounding Pilot Results

Check Other Results

  • Feedback:

    • Leaders enjoyed rounding and felt they were making a different

    • Patients appreciated someone coming to visit
