  2. 2. rnchat We'll have 3 topics from @NAPH1981 today. Please prepend your responses with T1, T2, etc. First topic coming up! #RNchat nursekris99 Oncology nurse and lurker in the south #RNChat EllenRichter Hi Amy, Vernon, Phil, Heather & the tweeter from NAPH! :) #RNchat rnchat T1 How do we boost # of nurses engaged in quality activities in all areas/facilities where nurses contribute to the quality of care? #RNchat NAPH1981 Chose topics to continue the convo on Natl Healthcare Quality Week! http: //ht.ly/31D1s #RNchat EllenRichter @nursekris99 Hey there lurker! :) #RNchat nursingpins Hey Ellen and all - #RNchat NAPH1981 We had guest blog posts for Natl HC Quality Wk frm @mhshospital @osumc @HHCnyc & @cocohealth - ck them out! http://ht.ly/31Afh #RNchat holisticnurses @EllenRichter Hi Ellen. Read some posts from past two #RNChats. Lots and lots of great tweets and info. #RNCHAT nursingpins We had a PHH in New Orleans - but it floated away. #RNchat MosbysNursing RT @rnchat: T1 How do we boost # of nurses engaged in activities in all areas where nurses contribute to the quality of care? #RNchat NAPH1981 RT @rnchat: T1 How do we boost # of nurses engaged in quality activities where nurses contribute to the quality of care? #RNchat nursekris99 T1: Find studies that show cost of readmission/problems in hospitals where staffing low. Money is always bottom line. #RNChat INQRIProgram #RNChat T1 - we need to show that #nurses should be at forefront of discussions on quality by illustrating all they do EllenRichter T1 Nurses want to deliver quality care but are limited by the # of tasks we can actually complete each hour. We need manpower first #RNchat INQRIProgram #RNChat T1: a @nurse's place is at the bedside AND the boardroom MosbysNursing I like this! RT @inqriprogram: #RNChat T1 - show that #nurses should be at forefront of discussions on quality by illustrating all they do EllenRichter T1 #Nurses need to be on the committees that decide quality activities! That is key! Staff nurses need to be part of the process #RNchat
  3. 3. FutureofNursing RT @NAPH1981: RT @rnchat: T1 How do we boost # of nurses engaged in quality activities where nurses contribute to the quality of care? #RNchat MosbysNursing Agreed. RT @ellenrichter: T1 Nurses want to deliver quality care but are limited by what we can complete. We need manpower first #RNchat MosbysNursing So true! RT @inqriprogram: #RNChat T1: a @nurse's place is at the bedside AND the boardroom INQRIProgram @nursekris99 T1: Re: readmission - info on what INQRI team found re: nurses' participation http://bit.ly/a0ivt2 #RNChat NAPH1981 @nursekris99 yeah - readmissions is a hot topic. we posted some free resources to help hospitals reduce them http://ht.ly/31DcH #RNchat holisticnurses T1 Involve all tiers of nursing not just nursing mgmt/admins. Bedside RNs are the best source of how best to achieve quality care. #RNCHAT holisticnurses RT @MosbysNursing: So true! RT @inqriprogram: #RNChat T1: a @nurses place is at the bedside AND the boardroom #RNCHAT NAPH1981 RT @INQRIProgram: T1: Re: readmission - info on what INQRI team found re: nurses participation http://bit.ly/a0ivt2 #RNchat EllenRichter T1 Recognition is important when #nurses perform quality activities. Also unit-based reports of quality care efforts to show results #RNchat MosbysNursing Like this! RT @holisticnurses: T1 Involve all tiers of nursing. Bedside RNs are source of how to achieve quality care #RNCHAT DebErupts Listening to #RNChat INQRIProgram #RNChat T1 - true interdisc collaboration is key for #nurses to be & amp; feel empowered to speak up when quality issues arise MosbysNursing RT @ellenrichter: T1 Recognition is important. Also unit-based reports of quality care efforts to show results #RNchat EllenRichter T1 If someone watches my patients, I will contribute an hour of great suggestions on quality care & service to hosp admin ea month #RNchat holisticnurses T1 Nurses aren't asked enough about process. We know ways to make more efficient use of our time for quality but no one is asking. #RNCHAT nursekris99 T1: I agree recognition helps. That can lead to retention and further quality care. #RNChat
  4. 4. nursingpins T1Hospitals must improve relationship with nurses and let them have more input in admin. decisions. #RNchat INQRIProgram @holisticnurses - agree. #Nurses should be leading quality improvement efforts - they know what works! #RNChat DebErupts Nurses needs to see how quality assurance and risk management programs work together to achieve goals. #RNChat EllenRichter T1 We all know what quality care SHOULD include--its trying to deliver it with distractions & poor staffing thats the challenge! #RNchat NAPH1981 T1: seems common themes are recognize, involve, empower, track results #RNchat cyclingwidow @EllenRichter AND not just in name. They must be allowed timw to get to those meetings #RNChat nursekris99 @holisticnurses So true! Our practice hired industrial efficiency experts to try to improve us. Like we're an assembly line! #RNChat holisticnurses @EllenRichter So very true, Ellen! A Hospital Admin-Nurse Shadow Program? #RNCHAT EllenRichter Great suggestion! RT @DebErupts #Nurses needs to see how quality assurance & risk mgmt programs work together to achieve goals. #RNChat nursingpins T1 Staffing is ruining the nursing profession - don't want to get started - :) #RNchat NAPH1981 Interesting concept! RT @holisticnurses: @EllenRichter So very true, Ellen! A Hospital Admin-Nurse Shadow Program? #RNchat jillvee RT @holisticnurses: T1 Nurses aren't asked enough about process. We know ways to make more efficient use of our time for quality but no one is asking. #RNCHAT EllenRichter @nursingpins T1 But if unsafe staffing is the root of our problems, we SHOULD mention it all the time. How can we give quality care? #RNchat nursingpins T1 Hospitals have redefined what nurses do - and it involves very little nursing. #RNchat INQRIProgram @EllenRichter, agree - we should mention, document & provide evidence of what happens to patients when #nurses are understaffed #RNChat T1
  5. 5. EllenRichter T1 As my colleagues mention over & over, very few hospital admins ASK the bedside #nurse for their suggestions on improving quality #RNchat NAPH1981 RT @INQRIProgram: we should mention, document & provide evidence of what happens to patients when #nurses are understaffed T1 #RNchat holisticnurses T1 Simple storytelling. Allow a panel of RNs from diverse depts tell their stories together. Stats are important but lack holism. #RNCHAT wantnews RT @EllenRichter: @nursingpins T1 But if unsafe staffing is the root of our problems, we SHOULD mention it all the time. How can we give quality care? #RNchat bthenextstep hello everyone! - just poking my head in. trying to catch up. #rnchat nursingpins T1 "When" - nearly all hospitals are understaffed - there are plenty of studies showing what it does to pt care! #RNchat wantnews RT @NAPH1981: Interesting concept! RT @holisticnurses: @EllenRichter So very true, Ellen! A Hospital Admin-Nurse Shadow Program? #RNchat nursingpins T1 - I do mention it all the time ;) #RNchat holisticnurses RT @EllenRichter T1 As my colleagues mention over & over, very few hospital admins ASK the bedside #nurse for suggestions on quality #RNCHAT EllenRichter @INQRIProgram: T1 What kind of evidence? More med errors? Patient deaths? Falls? Superinfections? Its all due to low RN numbers! #RNchat holisticnurses @nursingpins You do and that's wonderful! #RNCHAT INQRIProgram Question may be "where" and/or " who" and not "when" - maybe message needs to get to different people #RNChat T1 holisticnurses RT @nursingpins: T1 "When" - nearly all hospitals are understaffed - there are plenty of studies showing what it does to pt care! #RNCHAT nursingpins T1 The sad thing is - staffing has had a affect on the integrity of the nursing profession. #RNchat
  6. 6. jillvee RT @NAPH1981: RT @INQRIProgram: we should mention, document & provide evidence of what happens to patients when #nurses are understaffed T1 #RNchat EllenRichter Yes he does! RT @holisticnurses: @nursingpins You do and that's wonderful! #RNchat INQRIProgram @EllenRichter, agree - think we need to frame it for the public in just that way #RNChat DebErupts T1 Nurses got staffing ratio bill passed in California through Quality Assurance Efforts #RNchat bthenextstep T1 employers need to start requiring inclusion of the bedside nurse. the one's on the front lines. #rnchat nursingpins T1 Nurses are cutting corners - lots of things are not being done. #RNchat nursekris99 RT @nursingpins: T1 The sad thing is - staffing has had a affect on the integrity of the nursing profession. #RNchat EllenRichter T1 Now that we have worked understaffed for so many years, its hard to convince admin to raise the numbers. Thats our dilemma #RNchat holisticnurses RT @bthenextstep: T1 employers need to start requiring inclusion of the bedside nurse. the ones on the front lines. #RNCHAT rnchat Shoulder tap: Next topic coming up in a moment! #RNchat bthenextstep wish I could stay folks. got to run. enjoy! #rnchat nursingpins T1 the way nurses are utilized must be changed - hospitals still have the Training School Days mentality re: Nurses #RNchat FreshRN RT @INQRIProgram we should mention, document & provide evidence of what happens to patients when #nurses are understaffed #RNChat T1 #RNchat EllenRichter @bthenextstep Take care, Sean! :) #RNchat nursingpins RT @EllenRichter: @bthenextstep Take care, Sean! :) #RNchat EllenRichter T1 Bottom line, you need safe numbers of profess'l nursing staff if you are demanding quality. Then we should be able to deliver it. #RNchat rnchat T2 What is your impression of the new report on nursing in the future just released by the Institute of Medicine? #RNchat NAPH1981 Just another quick plug - pls chk if you work at an NAPH member hospital! would love to connect http://ht.ly/31A6L #RNchat
  7. 7. DebErupts Quality is also about efficient and safe systems. Can have all the staffing in the world, but if system is bad it doesn't matter. #RNChat nursingpins RT @EllenRichter: T1 Bottom line, you need safe numbers of professl nursing staff if you are demanding quality. #RNchat NAPH1981 RT @rnchat: T2 What's your impression of the new report on nursing's future just released by the Institute of Medicine? #RNchat holisticnurses @EllenRichter T1 It's practically denial that staffing IS an issue by some orgs. #RNCHAT holisticnurses RT @nursingpins: RT @EllenRichter: T1 Bottom line, you need safe numbers of professl nursing staff if you are demanding quality. #RNCHAT FreshRN RT @EllenRichter: Bottom line, u need safe numbers of pro nrsg staff if u r demanding quality. Then we should be able to deliver it. #RNchat INQRIProgram INQRI hosting next ed. of Health Wonk Review - hope you all will blog on these topics & submit by Nov 10 http://bit.ly/caVvMX #RNChat EllenRichter T2 Well the IOM Report does show hope for the advancement of the profession as a whole. I think its a positive document for nursing #RNchat DebErupts RT @EllenRichter: T1 Bottom line, you need safe numbers of profess'l nursing staff if you are demanding quality. Then we should be able to deliver it. #RNchat holisticnurses @DebErupts T1 I agree with you in that other process and safety issues are just as crucial in quality. ie. training, education. #RNCHAT nursingpins T2 -I thought it was positive too - (IOM report #RNchat EllenRichter Heres a link to a blurb on the report "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" IOM http://j.mp/cRyIvZ #RNchat INQRIProgram RT @rnchat: T2 What's your impression of the new report on nursing's future just released by the Institute of Medicine? #RNchat #FutureRN MatthewBrowning YourNurseIsOn.com can help fix it !!

  10. 10. INQRIProgram This is fabulous!

Will be fantastic! #RNCHAT ocamsrazor the devil is in the details..i.e. implementation, how? as long as med/nursing is a "business" profits will drive direction of change #rnchat holisticnurses RT @FutureofNursing: Were looking for help on implementation. Go to bit. ly/FutureRN to sign up & fill out survey to add your voice #RNCHAT FutureofNursing @ocamsrazor implementation, how? Complete transformation of the health care system by pushing the #FutureRN recommendations. #RNChat EllenRichter @ocamsrazor T2 Nurses are so creative. Given the opportunity to work with budgets, I bet we could think of ways to still profit. #RNchat holisticnurses T2 Already seeing use of NPs in home care to facilitate transitional care from hospital to home & chronic disease mgmt. #RNCHAT rnchat Last topic coming up! We'll probably go a few minutes over, but not by much. #RNchat EllenRichter **JUST SAYIN'** This is a terrific chat & thanks to @NAPH1981 for supplying these great topics! :) #RNchat rnchat T3 How do we boost interest in young for nursing to get them to enjoy providing care, making a difference, esp for underserved pops? #RNchat holisticnurses :) RT @EllenRichter: T2 Nurses are creative. Given the opportunity to work w budgets, I bet we could think of ways to still profit. #RNCHAT FutureofNursing RT @EllenRichter **JUST SAYIN'** This is a terrific chat & thanks to @NAPH1981 for supplying these great topics! :) AGREED! #RNChat NAPH1981 @EllenRichter Appreciate it, Ellen! Thanks to everyone for participating! My name is Maya, by the way ... Reach out! #RNchat nursingpins T2 It will take a complete transformation of the system before nurses can be effective. #RNchat EllenRichter T3 Well, this is the question of the decade! How do we do this? We ALL want that answer! Its a difficult situation indeed. #RNchat
  11. 11. NAPH1981 RT @rnchat: T3 How do make young ppl more intrstd in nursing/get 'em to enjoy providng care/makng a diffrnc, esp for undersrvd pops? #RNchat holisticnurses RT @rnchat: T3 How do we boost interest in youth for nursing to enjoy providing care, making a diff, esp for underserved pops? #RNCHAT INQRIProgram We have to reach them where they are. Ex: @onlinenursing's classes for informatics that get young #nurses involved in soc media T3 #RNChat nursingpins T3 There is no relation to what a nurse is taught to do and what hospitals expect them to do - the shock is unreal #RNchat FreshRN RT @nursingpins: T3 There is no relation to what a nurse is taught to do and what hospitals expect them to do - the shock is unreal #RNchat NAPH1981 RT @INQRIProgram: reach them where they are Ex: @onlinenursings classes for informatics that get young #nurses involved in #sm T3 #RNchat EllenRichter @nursingpins Exactly! T3 It will be a huge undertaking to bring our profession to the point where young ppl really DESIRE to be RNs #RNchat FutureofNursing T3 Need to reach them earlier and then prepare them better (or differently- residencies?) #RNChat FreshRN Agree! RT @FutureofNursing T3 Need to reach them earlier and then prepare them better (or differently- residencies?) #RNchat INQRIProgram The parking meter waits for no one- not even #RNChat. I enjoyed it, everyone.Take care & submit for Health Wonk Review! http://bit. ly/caVvMX WillowRN #RNchat T3 Exposure. Volunteerism. So many ppl are drawn to nsg to have a steady job. That's the wrong reason for this career. EllenRichter T3 Salary always boosts interest. Thats a given. We all need to start at BSN level & get paid accordingly. Not $22/hr! #RNchat nursingpins T3 -Reality is - all those things taught in school do not happen in hospitals #RNchat FreshRN @FutureofNursing There are around 5 residency programs in my area each getting 500-1000+ applicants each..simply not enough 4 every1 #RNchat EllenRichter @INQRIProgram Thanks for participating!! Take care! #RNchat holisticnurses T3 Sounds as if this topic overlaps into education reform too. ;) #RNCHAT WillowRN #RNchat T3 Ultimately, this goes all the way back to how parents raise their children. Do you nurture them to care, or not?
  12. 12. NAPH1981 Yes, thanks so much! RT @EllenRichter: @INQRIProgram Thanks for participating!! Take care! #RNchat ocdgirl2000 RT @EllenRichter: T3 Salary always boosts interest. Thats a given. We all need to start at BSN level & get paid accordingly. Not $22/hr! #RNchat nursingpins Thanks @INQRIProgram @NAPH1981 and all present. #RNchat WillowRN @holisticnurses #RNCHAT T3 I completely agree. Ppl in ALL careers need to be interested in serving the underserved. EllenRichter T3 I work side by side @ the bedside with phys therapists & nutritionists with PhDs, and yet1/2 the RNs havent been to college. #RNchat holisticnurses T3 My high school had a Nursing Now club. Monthly meetings w/ speakers, support for college apps, field trips. It inspired me! #RNCHAT ocdgirl2000 @EllenRichter Some RN's start @ "unknown" education level from outside educational facilities in other countries,R accepted BOARDS!#RNCHAT EllenRichter @holisticnurses T3 Great point! Go to the middle & high schools to promote the profession! I've done that too, yet very few want it! #RNchat WillowRN @EllenRichter T3 #RNchat More of the BSN grads I work with consider basic nsg care to be beneath them, esp if it concerns " distasteful" care EllenRichter @ocdgirl2000 T3 Actually most every other country on Earth starts RNs with BSN! The USA is behind! #RNchat grimalkinrn @holisticnurses T3 #RNCHAT My high school had physiology w/a huge medical focus. Lots of RNs and Docs from that class! EllenRichter @WillowRN T3 That is very sad to hear. #RNchat nursingpins T3 I would not recommend hospital nursing as it is to any young person - and without drastic changes the profession is doomed. #RNchat NAPH1981 T3 Interesting common themes - get them while they're young and expand educational opps #RNchat ocdgirl2000 @EllenRichter #rnchat T3 State Boards R responsible 4 accepting out of country residents with little known understanding of their ed level! ocdgirl2000 @EllenRichter #rnchat T3 That depends on the Country.
  13. 13. EllenRichter @NAPH1981 T3 Its so funny. We want to get them when they're young, & once they start working, we eat them! How sick is that? #RNchat WillowRN @EllenRichter T3 #RNchat Here, the ppl from the poorer colleges are more likely to be more caring. Lots of wealthy new grads in Colorado. MyNurseJane RT @nursingpins: T3 -Reality is - all those things taught in school do not happen in hospitals #RNchat FreshRN RT @EllenRichter: @holisticnurses T3 Great point! Go to the middle & amp; high schools to promote the profession! #RNchat Ashleigh_RN @rnchat I missed #RNChat but wanted 2 share that @desouzanurse & amp; I are going around 2 schools of nursing in Ontario 2 talk re: #oncology WillowRN @EllenRichter @NAPH1981 #RNchat Well, unfortunately, young flesh is the most tender. NAPH1981 @EllenRichter hahhaa perhaps by the time today's youth enter nursing they wont get eaten up?! I hope more discussion = more change #RNchat holisticnurses T3 Hospitals really need to have a phenomenal support system for nurses. I'll bet nurses can design that program. :) #RNCHAT EllenRichter @WillowRN T3 You got that right! We must curtail that habit, too, if we are going to attract young folks to nursing! #RNchat EllenRichter @NAPH1981 LOL and I hope you're right too. I want nothing more than to positively promote the profession of #nursing #RNchat rnchat OK, our hour is a bit over, so we'll wrap things up in a moment! #RNchat NAPH1981 RT @holisticnurses: T3 Hospitals really need to have a phenomenal support system for nurses. I bet nurses can design that program :) #RNchat NAPH1981 Glad to be a part of this robust chat, thanks to all! #RNchat EllenRichter @holisticnurses T3 Yes, but a phenominal support system requires additional positions. We are back at square one. :( #RNchat rnchat Let's have your parting thoughts before closing up! #RNchat NAPH1981 One last time - pls chk if you work at an NAPH member hospital! would love to connect on or offline http://ht.ly/31A6L #RNchat nursingpins T3 I promote nursing too (Greatest Profession) - but hospitals have just about done us in. #RNchat holisticnurses @Ashleigh_RN Best of luck talking with students! #RNCHAT
  14. 14. EllenRichter @NAPH1981 @RNchat Wow, great chat! This was a lot of fun! Got my adrenalin pumping mid-day!
