ICU Collaborative Outcomes Congress

Landmark Medical Center

September 22, 2009

  • Daily rounds included team lead, clinical pharmacist, and individual nursing staff.

  • The nurses voiced the following concerns:

    • Nurses interrupting patient care to give data to each discipline separately. This could cause a decrease in nursing care time spent at bedside

    • There was an opportunity for patient care to be fragmented when each discipline focuses on their own goals for the patient

Disciplines will round together daily individual nursing staff.

Projected Results:

1.Daily goals will be identified by utilizing input from all disciplines

2. Improved patient outcomes resulting from this collaboration of care

3. Increased SAQ scores in the areas of job satisfaction and teamwork.

    = Ice Cream Sundae Celebration

  • 1 year = no BSI

  • Nurses actively participate with team and are knowledgeable in discussions concerning their patients

  • Quality improvement issues that were identified and implemented due to multidisciplinary rounding:

    • Implementation of mouth care products designed to reduce VAPs

    • Implementation of products to address skin integrity concerns: support surfaces, boots, specialty skin care products

  • Since physicians are unable to round with the group due to their varying schedules, a tool was developed to maintain communication with physicians and any other team member who may be unable to attend daily rounds

Our future plans
Our Future Plans individual nursing staff.
