At monthly staff meetings inform staff about plans for implementing a new communication strategy and timelines.At unit practice council meetings discuss unit and shift implementation successes and challenges, inquire where more support needed. Provide informational emails with updateson the status of the new communication strategy and training information.B6 Coordinating Educational Events:Educational training on how the reviews from patient’s scores affect reimbursementrates. At staff meetings there will be trainings onthe evidence-based practice of intentional bedside reporting. Included will be the key points that need to be asked to each patient.Simulation training from managers and supervisors on what intentional bedside reporting looks like.B1-B1a. Surgical Department (Surgical Site Infections (SSI))The role and responsibilities of the surgical department include completing invasive surgical techniques ina sterile environment while the patient is in the operating room to ensure the minimal amount of microbe interaction possible. The surgical team’s success is important for VBP within the organization
BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT6because most surgical site infections occur post-op. This can directly affect patient scores due to an increase in patient length of stay and complications, which then affects reimbursement rates. Surgical siteinfections (SSIs) are infections of the incision, organ, or surgical space that occurs after surgery. These infections can happen when microbes interact through poor site preparation or a break in the sterile field.The prevention of SSI is increasingly important as the number of surgical procedures performed in the United States continues to rise. Surgical site infections are persistent and preventable health care–associated infections [CITATION Ber17 \p 785 \l 1033 ].B2. Goals:End of year 1, the surgical leadership team will review the evidence-based practices. Have discussions with other hospital’s surgical leadership teams and review literature to determinea course of action for preventing SSI.End of year 2, a new SSI prevention plan will be completed and implemented into practice.End of year 3, there will be a clear downward trend developed with a goal of 10% in the reduction of SSI.B3. Attaining Quality Outcomes in patient care over the next 3 years.Decreasing SSI post-op will improve patient outcomes.Decreasing SSI will increase patient satisfaction.Decreasing SSI will improve multidisciplinary teams’ relationships as collaboration for patient success is needed for pre-surgical and post-op patients are covered by the hospital medical team. Attaining Quality Outcomes inreimbursement over the next 3 years.Decreasing SSI will provide improved outcomes, resulting in a reduction of in readmissions to the hospital due to complications.
