NDNQI helped us identify how to improve our fall and near-fall rates in our 93 bed neuro-rehab hospital in Colorado.
Falls are of particular concern to us. As you can well imagine, with neurologically challenged patients, we have a high fall and near-fall risk. It took quality data reporting to help us see where we could change the statistics. When we have practice transfers for traumatic brain injury, we now have two staff members present. Now, our incidence rate is below the benchmark. The data helped us justify the need for that second staff member.Diane Reinhard, Vice President of Patient Care Services/Chief Nursing Officer, Craig Hospital
NDNQI data helps identify problems, allowing you to compare your hospital not only to itself from quarter to quarter, but also with peer hospitals using a proven Structure-Process-Outcome model.
Because data is reported at the unit level, differences in nursing quality are easy to identify—spearheading improvements sooner.
You can learn, through the experiences of other members, what has worked for them and how to use those solutions to jump-start yours.
The linear reporting model lets you track progress on the improvements you’re implementing to understand what’s working and what’s not.
