  6. The 6 P’s Program • Dry erase board for every patient • Fall Risk Sun signage • Switch to yellow arm bands/socks • Patient education brochure • Partners in Patient Care ‘Agreements’ • Fall Prevention • Pressure Ulcer Prevention • Medications increasing fall risk identified on MAR

  7. The 6P’s Program cont’d • Post-fall debriefing protocol and audit • Employee Education • RNs and NAs attended mandatory classes including videos with scripting • Competency validation at the bedside • Monitoring of Incidence, Compliance and Patient Satisfaction

  9. HFH Falls with Injury/1,000 Patient Days 6Ps implementation house-wide

  10. Hospital Acquired Pressure Ulcers > Stage 1 6Ps implementation house-wide

  11. Patient Satisfaction: Noise Level In and Around Room 6Ps implementation house-wide, higher score = higher satisfaction

  12. Patient Satisfaction: Promptness Response to Call 6Ps implementation house-wide, higher score = higher satisfaction

  13. Patient Satisfaction: Staff Sensitivity to Inconvenience 6Ps implementation house-wide, higher score = higher satisfaction

  15. Staff and Customer Feedback • RN staff were surveyed 1 year after go-live • Family member reported that she was so relieved to really know that her mother was checked on over night • Patient reported that she felt safer knowing that someone was checking on her regularly even if she was asleep • Some patients are bothered by the frequent checking

  16. Pilot program in all practice areas Adjust for different patient populations ICU OB/NICU White boards are not a part of the Medical Record Test your materials—dry erase board Engage as many frontline staff as possible Review results frequently Listen to feedback carefully Maintain momentum Share the knowledge Some of 6 P’s reworked Dry Erase Board modified Partners in Patient Care ‘Agreement’ modified On every admission Includes basic information about fall and pressure ulcer prevention and now with infection prevention measures Re-education of the Staff Healthstream for RNs and NAs Results, 6Ps review, reinforce content of conversation, less focus on actual scripting 6 P’s Lessons Learned and Refreshed
