Many readers are interested in transitional care. This video and article provide the information you need. The authors describe their project to reduce readmissions through the establishment of a pilot program using the C-TraC program, which is a phone-based, protocol-driven, low-cost, nurse-led, transitional care model. The goal was to connect with the patients telephonically up to 30 days postdischarge to mitigate current confusion regarding the discharge plan and identify potential medication discrepancies. Learn about this effective transitional care model.

Telemetry monitoring is a limited resource. This quality improvement project describes a nurse managed telemetry discontinuation protocol to stop telemetry monitoring when it is no longer indicated. After implementing the protocol, data were collected for 6 months and compared to preintervention. There was a mean decrease in telemetry monitor usage and likelihood of remaining on a telemetry monitor until discharge. Learn about this nurse-managed telemetry discontinuation protocol – watch the video and then read the article.

Assessing high risk for falling among psychiatric inpatients is particularly challenging in that assessments with strong sensitivity and specificity are not available. The author explains their study to validate use of the Baptist Health High Risk Falls Assessment (BHHRFA), a medical-surgical fall risk assessment, with a psychiatric inpatient population. Data collected on 5910 psychiatric inpatients using the BHHRFA showed acceptable sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic odds ratio. After you watch the video, take time to read the article.

Limited research has been conducted on how nurses perceive “quality nursing care.” The authors conducted focus groups to identify nurses' perceptions of quality care at a Midwestern academic medical center. Transcripts of the focus group sessions were analyzed using thematic analysis techniques, and 11 themes emerged: Leadership, Staffing, Resources, Timeliness, Effective Communication/Collaboration, Professionalism, Relationship-Based Care, Environment/Culture, Simplicity, Outcomes, and Patient Experience. Learn how nurses define quality care: watch the video and read the article.

Medication errors are a source of serious patient harm. A unique approach, Socio-Technical Probabilistic Risk Assessment, was used to analyze medication errors in this pediatric setting. Three steps were identified that should be taken with every intravenous medication or fluid administration. Nurses check for the 3Cs: Connections, Clamps, and Confirming pump settings. Preliminary analysis revealed a 22% reduction in errors. This video is prepared with a pediatric theme!

Registered nurse (RN) “second victims” are RNs who are harmed from their involvement in medical errors. This study found a relationship between RN involvement in preventable adverse events and 2 domains of burnout: emotional exhaustion (P = .009) and depersonalization (P = .030). Support to RNs involved in preventable adverse events was inversely related to RN emotional exhaustion (P < .001) and depersonalization (P = .003) and positively related to personal accomplishment (P = .002).

Seasoned nurses frequently resign from their positions due to burnout. An innovative idea that could support nurse retention is nurse sabbaticals. Balanced scorecards with strategy maps can display financial benefit, positive customer experience, and operational and human capital development required to initiate and sustain a professional nurse sabbatical. A balanced scorecard with strategy map is an effective tool that demonstrates connection between the organizational mission and the outcomes of a nurse sabbatical program.

Dr. Lake and colleagues describe their study on the associations between the NICU work environment, quality of care, safety, and patient outcomes. A secondary analysis was conducted of responses of 1247 NICU staff nurses in 171 hospitals to a large nurse survey. Better work environments were associated with lower odds of nurses reporting poor quality, safety, and outcomes. Improving the work environment may be a promising strategy to achieve safer settings for at-risk newborns.

Recent changes in the Surgical Care Improvement Project guideline require blood glucose values be less than 180 mg/dL 18 to 24 hours after anesthesia end time after cardiac surgery. The authors studied 2 groups of patients: the first group of patients was transitioned off IV insulin on postoperative day 1, 24 hours after anesthesia end time, whereas the second group was transitioned off IV insulin on the second day, 48 hours after anesthesia end time. The results showed no statistical differences in outcomes between groups. Watch this video and read the article to learn about the study and evidence they gathered from it.

Among hospitalized patients, malnutrition is prevalent yet often overlooked and undertreated. The author implemented a QI program that integrated early nutritional care into the nursing workflow. Nurses screened for malnutrition risk at patient admission and then immediately ordered oral nutritional supplements for those at risk. Supplements were given as regular medications. Pressure ulcer incidence, length of stay, 30-day readmissions, and costs of care were reduced. Watch this video and read the entire article for free: the article is open access so readers can learn about this important QI initiative.
