Background

Background

  • Patient/ Customer Quality of care and Satisfaction is undoubtedly on the minds of hospitals and healthcare systems.

  • Patient satisfaction is tied to reimbursements.

  • One of the things that patients value is good communication.

  • The Joint Commission states that 65% of reported sentinel events were caused by communication errors.

  • In 2007, one of the National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) declared by The Joint Commission was to engage patients in their care.


Pico question

PICO Question

Does the use of a standardized or structured whiteboard versus a blank board result in increased nurse-patient communication and increased patient/family engagement with their care?


Goals of the project

Goals of the Project

  • Standardize “whiteboards” across the system

  • Provide a tool for better communication between caregivers and patients.

  • A mechanism for patient /family engagement in their care and education.

  • Increase patient satisfaction scores / Improve HCAHPS survey scores.

    • HCAHPS ( Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems)

      • A standardized survey instrument designed to produce data about patients’ perspective of care.

      • Publically reported data


Swot analysis

Strengths:

Improve patient- centered care

Improve teamwork

Increase nurse/patient communication

Increase patient education/engagement in their care

“Shared” communication tool.

Weakness:

Controversy over nurses burdened with “one more task” to their responsibilities.

Opportunities:

Improve nurse-patient communication

Increase patient participation with their care

Standardization of information written on the board

Increase patient satisfaction rating

Improve HCAHPS scores

Threats:

Nurses’ compliance

Whiteboards not completed due to missing markers and erasers

SWOT ANALYSIS


Challenges to implementing whiteboards

Challenges to implementing whiteboards:

  • Standardization across the system…”special needs”

  • Compliance

  • Privacy

  • Valid and accurate information

  • Expectations

  • Accountability

  • Patient involvement

  • Who’s “GOAL” is it?


Strategies and solutions to challenges

Strategies and Solutions to Challenges?

Recruit Input

- Direct care providers

- Ancillary team members

- Customer Advisory Panel

- Leadership

- Professional Practice Committee

Education and communication

- in-services will be provided to staff

- staff awareness through “huddles”

- provide “Inpatient Communication Board” handouts to the team

Participation and involvement


Current state

Current State….


Evidence summary

Evidence Summary

  • Standardized templates

  • Structured format = more inclusive of relevant/accurate information

  • Direct Care Provider accountability

  • Whiteboards should be placed in clear view of patients

  • Erasable markers should be readily available

    • greatest barrier


Financial projection

Financial Projection

Size of whiteboard:

24 x 36

18 x 36 for space challenges

$ 110/whiteboard X 30 (# rooms/unit) = $ 3,300 approximate cost per Inpatient unit


Steps taken to standardize whiteboard format utilization and expectations

Steps taken to standardize whiteboard format,utilization and expectations:

Literature reviewed / unit rounds completed to evaluate current state

Template created and searched

Presentation to Service Excellence work group

Templates combined

Unit rounds at PMC & POM to recruit end user input/feedback

Suggestions incorporated into template

Template to marketing for quote

Recruit funding

Template sent out to Directors to share with UPC’s and recruit input/feedback

Visit to Mother Baby and ED to assess special needs

Template taken to Community Advisory Panel for input form the “Customer”

Care Delivery 1/28/2011

Evaluation

Evaluation

  • A post-intervention 5-questionnaire survey will be given to the patients upon discharge on the pilot units regarding usefulness of patient whiteboards.

  • A post-intervention audit will be conducted to check for staff compliance and identification of removable barriers at 3 and 6 months

  • Outcome= to increase nurse-patient communication/education and patient engagement in their care.

    • Increased patient satisfaction scores (Press Ganey) that reflects

      • nurses’ attention to patients’ special/personal needs

      • nurses kept patients informed.

  • Improve HCAHPS survey scores in 3 months post-intervention.
