2012 Breakthrough in Reducing Readmissions

Pearls
• Very supportive Nurse Leaders
• We implemented the GHA HEN project ideas to set
our standards.
• We chose things easy to achieve first
• Chose key personnel to be our champions.
• Falls tree on both inpatient units with a reward
system to create a little competition.
• Heightened awareness in the ED for nurses to check if
the patient had any alternative care options rather
than being a readmission.

Defining Moments In Our Journey
We decided that our base topic was to make everything
that was required FUN!!
4/4/12 In-services for all clinical staff
• Decorated the room with Easter eggs
• Easter eggs were filled with door prizes
• Powerpoint presentation that focused on
Readmissions and Falls
• All were required to do the chicken dance!

Defining Moments in Our Journey
7/24/13 HEN PARTIES Picnic
• Included several familiar items as Fried Chicken,
Deviled Eggs, and Egg Custard Pie!
• After eating each clinical staff member had to
participate in a mini inservice related to best
practices to prevent falls and reduce readmissions.
Breakthrough Strategy
• The biggest challenge: Physician “Buy In”
• Concurrent chart review daily intervention with
physicians and staff.
• Have one Hospitalist as our “Champion”. Share
Specification Manual for specific documentation
needed and he not only does it, but shares with the
other physicians to help meet requirements.

Where the journey
began…
• Falls and ADE had the
largest room for
improvement
• Several areas already
meeting the target of
zero harms

Next big step to Reduce Harm
Our next big step will be to initiate
A Passion for Patients Committee Meetings.
This will not only include frontline staff, but also Case
Management, local Home Health, Hospices, and Patient
or Patient Representatives to help evaluate our
processes at a higher standard.
