Case Study The evaluation of the four QESN safety competencies will require communication among healthcare team members about each safety competency and what areas may need improvement. Along with communication among staff, computer generated hospital reporting systems and risk management information will need to be researched to see the success of the effectiveness of the safety elements. Effectiveness of the daily staff huddle and SBAR and Voalte communication tool would be measured by the number of improvements, increase in strength of communication and decrease in errors that have occurred to compare to before the daily huddle, SBAR, and Voalte was implemented. Communication and staff interviews regarding daily huddle, SBAR, and Voalte communication, too, will give insight on their effectiveness. Hospital based reporting systems and risk management documentation can provide information on errors made and near misses before and after the CPOE was implemented. These are both good tools to use to show the effectives of CPOE. Patient satisfaction surveys, which will provide honest communication of hospital experiences of patients, can be utilized to give insight on process improvement. SUSTAINABLITY The four QSEN safety elements have sustainability in the ICU based on their simplicity of use, addition to increased communication and workflow and patient safety. After the implementation of each QSEN safety competency, they each have long-term sustainability. Incorporating the evaluation strategies of each competencies, will assist with sustainability by recognizing what works and what doesn’t for each competency and making adjustments it to increase its effectiveness and ease of use.

Case Study communication and staff participation these safety competencies can be integrated into new hire training education, which will help promote the sustainability. Seasoned and new staff can share their insight and experience to promote process improvement. CONCLUSION Nurse Jones has identified four QSEN safety competencies focused on enhanced communication, teamwork and patient safety. The safety competencies can be included in new higher nurse training programs to be day-to-day. Safety competencies are not just for the ICU, by sharing and modifying the competencies they can be used hospital wide, which will result in a decrease patient errors from occurring. By incorporating these four competencies the ICU nursing staff, both new and seasoned, will benefit from stronger communication skills, increased work efficiency and safe effective timesaving techniques.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
