Organizational Systems and Quality Leadership Task 1
A. Understanding of Nursing Quality Indicators
A.In 1998, American Nurses Association established a database program where healthcare organizations can input and measure their efficacity and safety in nursing care. This is called National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators and uses measurable events that have been proven to impact the quality and safety of nursing care (Werner, 2017, p. 392).
Nursing Quality Indicators are a concrete measurable way to quantify the efficiency and results of nursing work (Sauls, 2013). Some of these indicators are pressure ulcer rates and physical restraints, which both have been used in our scenario, on Mr. J, our 72 years old inpatient patient with mild dementia and a fractured hip. It has been proven that the use of physical restraints contributes to an increase in adverse outcomes in hospitalized patients and one of the adverse outcome is the pressure ulcer, which Mr. J already has signs of a pressure ulcer starting to develop on his lower spine. New clinical measures were added to the Nursing Quality Indicators in 2014, when the incidence of pressure ulcers rates have been added (Werner, 2017, p. 392). It is evident that the hospital where Mr. J was admitted has failed Mr. J in the quality of nursing care and that there is a stringent need for the hospital to find ways to improve their Nursing Quality Indicators (("How-to Guide," n.d.). If the nurses in this hospital will collect and look at the indicators for the incidence of pressure ulcers and prevalence of restraints in their hospital compared to national data, they will probably discover the need for improvement (Werner, 2017, p. 394).
B. Advancing Quality Patient Care
B. Once the data from the hospital where Mr. J was hospitalized is collected, and introduced in the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators, the hospital, and the nurses will be able to advance quality patient care through two processes:” (1) to provide comparative data to health care organizations (in this case, to Mr. J hospital) to support Quality Improvement (QI) activities and (2) to help develop national data to better understand the link between nurse staffing and patient outcomes” (Werner, 2017, p. 392). At the core of the quality improvement is patient-centered care, and nurse’s education regarding teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, safety, informatics. These are the tools to achieve better outcomes translated into better Nursing Quality Indicators. The focus on these tools is part of a new cultural shift in healthcare where ...
