Patient Centered Care Model.
The model which was drawn from NMH’s Henderson Framework for Nursing Practice proposes to provide a healing environment centered around trust, compassion and the incorporation of our patient’s personal values. The frame work is grounded in five guiding principles as well as the hospital’s core values. They address the role of the nurse, the team, and the importance of communication with the patient and family regarding the plan of care.
The model focuses upon the clinical and safety needs of individual patients with monitoring, individualized interventions and staffing adjustments.

The Patient Centered Model of Care is grounded in our Framework for Nursing Practice
NMH’s Nursing Framework is grounded in five guiding principles as well as the hospital’s core values:
The role of the nurse is unique and essential to the care of the patient. The nurse demonstrates that unique and essential function through the Seven Attributes of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Nurse:
Nursing is both a science and an art. Nursing practice is evidence-based and blends research, knowledge and technology with individualized, compassionate approaches to care.
The patient is at the center of care delivery. Each patient is a unique human being with complex, dynamic needs. Patients are encouraged to be active and engaged members of the healthcare team.
Patients are part of a social support system. Involvement of the patient's family and significant others is acknowledged and valued as an integral part of the plan of care.
The nurse in collaboration with the patient/family and the interdisciplinary team develops an individualized, evidence-based plan of care to promote health, ensure patient safety, facilitate recovery, and when appropriate, ensure a peaceful death for the patient.
