Pearls
Multidisciplinary
•It is not just the work of the Quality Improvement Department; all
departments must be involved
• Must be a collaborative effort from the top-down and bottom-up
• Increased communication and input from management staff
Assign ownership and expectations
• Establish timelines for project deliverables
•Continue to meet with definite reporting timeframes
Educate
•Keep the staff, medical staff, and board informed

Defining Moments In Our Journey
• 2012- Participation in the Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) &
education to management team; Regrouped on readmissions due to data
issues; formation of Readmission Reduction team; OATS team formed;
HCAHPS training; CAUTI team formed; Marketing of Patient Safety through
website, banners, boards, & local newspaper
• 2013-Strategies to reduce readmissions implemented-bedside shift
reporting, white boards, rounding (hourly, nurse manager, leadership),
discharge follow up calls, follow up appointments made, discharge folder,
pharmacist educating high risk patients, follow up calls for ER patients,
working with hospice and home heath agencies, participating in GMCF
Care Transitions, participating in MATCH, Patient & Family Engagement;
Case Manager position job duties aligned with reducing readmission
efforts to include discharge process
Breakthrough Strategy
• Major Challenges Encountered
–
–
–
–
Limited Resources (human, time, financial)
Implementation of EHR
Culture change
Training
• Strategies to Overcome
–
–
–
–
Time management, utilizing resources from the HEN
Constant education and re- education, dedicated point person for EHR
Reinforcement of rationales, hearing stories from peers at other facilities
Make it fun, pertinent, convenient, personal, and using personalized teaching
methods
