WHY Should Advisors do Rounds?
 A real-time pulse check
 Strengthens partnerships
 Some patients are more comfortable
sharing concerns with a “former patient”
 Introduces a fresh perspective
 Front line workers see PFCC in ACTION
 Drives results. Yields better outcomes.
Vidant Medical Center Safety Liaisons
 Patient & Family Advisors
who have completed risk
assessments, HIPPA training
and role orientation.
 Patients give consent in
advance.
 Liaisons focus on safety and
use a rounding tool.
 Findings are documented and
staff and advisors conduct
debriefs with safety manager.

Safety Liaison Rounds:
What we learned…
…. about Advisor Rounding
 Advisor Selection Important
 Builds Relationships
 Some patients more comfortable sharing with Patient
Advisors than with Staff
…. about our Care System
 Identified transition snags from acute to rehab
 Room nightlight preventive maintenance process missing
 Discharge instructions in bright envelope; being used
throughout the system
 Patient-family engagement in bedside shift report, hourly
rounds and communication boards
Return to Care Rounds
 Advisors rounded with
leaders from Office of Patient
& Family Experience
 Used separate rounding
tools and compared results
after each room
 Hospital – wide results
compiled by Office of Patient
& Family Experience

HOW do we do Unit Rounds?
 Meet with Unit Manager
 Review Unit Scores
 Identify Unit’s Needs
(based on scores, manager’s needs & advisor’s input)
 Round with Managers
 Discuss Advisor Rounding Alone
 Report Findings to Unit Manager
 Act on Findings
19
A Success Story: CVICU
Unit Needs:
Med Communication
Nurse Communication
From CVICU Rounds:
1. “Patient does not understand purpose behind
the only new med she has received since
admission”
2. “No staff member has ever removed the
“Commonly Used Meds” sheet from the boom for
any reason.”
20
Act on Findings
One piece of the puzzle:
1. TEAM strategy session
2. Small tests of change
3. Round to assess
effectiveness
4. Make Improvements
5. Continue Rounding
RESULTS:
CVICU Med Communication
score rose from sub 10% to 98% within a year.
21
A Success Story: CIU
“Wife stayed with
husband for entire
admission of 40+ days
and was overwhelmed
by the care she
received as a family
member. Nurses
offered her extra meal
plates at every meal
time and checked on
her regularly.”
22
Act on Findings
1. Advisor and Wife
immediately recognized
nurse on duty
2. Advisor reported
findings to Unit Manager
at end of Rounds
3. Unit Manager and
Advisor gave Wife
Employee Recognition
form
4. Form copies added to
personnel files
5. Nurses received Staff

Round, Round, Round …
1 West, Rounds - September 19, 2013, Patient Advisor Feedback
FOCUS: Pain Management and Quietness (Restfulness)
Patient 1:
Positive Feedback: Patient felt well-informed and well taken care of.
Needs Work: Patient’s largest complaint concerned restfulness. She felt as though staff
members were in and out of her room all night long. Patient finally requested that staff please
limit the times they come in during the night, and they made an effort to coordinate her care.
She did add though that nurses/care partners are still coming in and making her get out of bed
to weigh at 4am
Patient 2:
Positive Feedback: Pain is being managed well. Patient and husband both love that they always
feel well prepared for what’s coming next. Staff makes it a point to tell them both what to
expect ahead of time.
Needs Work: Communication Board not updated for current shift. (as of 4pm)
Patient 3:
Positive Feedback: Says that she’s had a perfect experience. Could not think of one thing that
needed work.
Needs Work:
Patient 4:
Positive Feedback:
Needs Work: Patient was in horrible pain while in the ED the night before. She felt like no one
was listening to her and ended up taking her own IV out. She offered no positive feedback. She
did say that 1West staff is doing a better job of managing her pain but seemed completely
unsettled by the ED experience.

Advisor Rounding: Impact
 Strengthened Partnerships
 Advisor impact no longer dependent on
presence of Patient Experience Team leaders
 Boosted Patient Morale
 Boosted front-line staff support
 Made managers more open to Advisor input
 Increased Advisor satisfaction
 Improved scores & outcomes
26
Lessons Learned
 Not every manager is open to Advisor Rounding.
Start small.
 Not every Advisor will want to Round. Advisor
selection matters.
 Rounding requires mutual respect and open
communication between Advisors and Managers.
 Build on existing work. Don’t reinvent the wheel.
Keep it simple!
