CONNECTING THE BONES OF STANDARD WORK
Michele McClure, RN, MSN, NP-C Stephanie Sobczak, MS

- Hear how an inpatient manager “fleshed out” the lean management tools to work as a system to address staff engagement, efficiency and patient safety.

Brian Sharp, MD
Luke Schulz, PharmD, BCPS (AQ-ID)
- After a patient safety event, an RCA was launched with a corrective action plan that included new standard work for obtaining the necessary medications at the time the patient needs them.
- This has already proven beneficial to patients and contributed to saving a patient’s life.
PRE- AND POST-OPERATIVE HANDOFF IMPROVEMENT
Jamie Limjoco, MD
Laura Konkol, MSN, RN
- The pre- and post-operative handoff tool was created to improve communication among providers caring for vulnerable and highly complex surgical neonates. Initiation of the pre- and post-operative handoff process has positively affected our patients and their care as evidenced by:
- Enhanced understanding of details related to the patient's history and the surgical procedure
- Improvement of the family's involvement in their child's care
- Decreased need to clarify care plans between specialty team members
- Together with our surgical and anesthesia colleagues, these efforts have allowed us to deliver seamless care and improve our overall patient outcomes in the neonatal intensive care unit.
