  • ICU LOS Reduction
    • Compared to baseline, the three ICUs had a combined reduction of 42% in risk adjusted ICU Days. This was a net savings of 6,171 ICU days over the 12 months.

  • Hospital Mortality Extrapolation to Resurrection Health System
    • Over the course of the 12 months there were almost 500 fewer in-hospital deaths of ICU patients than predicted – a reduction of 39%.

  • General Care Extrapolation to the Health System
    • Finally, there were 7,200 general care days fewer than predicted over the 12 months across the health system – a 17% reduction.

  • Routine Rounds Can Reveal Extraordinary Occurrences
    • Scenario 1
    • In discussion with the patient, the patient reveals to the eICU nurse that he has had right arm pain since he had his blood drawn earlier in the morning.
    • The eICU nurse was able to direct the patient to lift up the sleeve of his gown. The eICU nurse is able to focus the camera in more closely on the patients arm to reveal a tourniquet in place from an earlier blood draw.
    • The eICU nurse had the ability to collaborate with the primary care nurse by calling on the phone and describing the patient findings.
    • While remaining focused on the patient, the eICU nurse was able to witness the primary nurse removing the tourniquet from the patients arm.
    • Scenario 2
    • Upon entering a patients room, the eICU nurse noticed the patient frequently wiping her nose.
    • The eICU nurse asked the patient if she could offer her something for a ‘runny nose’. The patient denied a need for anything.
    • As the eICU nurse continued her virtual rounds on the patient, she realized the patient was not wiping her nose with the tissue but in fact sniffing something from the tissue.
    • The eICU nurse remained on camera with the patient but turned the volume off as she called the nursing unit on the phone and notified the primary care nurse on site of her findings.
    • It was discovered that the patient was sniffing “HEROIN” which was leading to her exacerbation of asthma and elevated heart rate.

  • Sometimes The Obvious is Overlooked
    • Scenario 1
    • Sentry alerts revealed low pulse ox. readings on a patient
    • The eICU nurse entered the room per camera and noticed a nurse at the bedside replacing the pulse ox. to the patient’s finger. A doctor was also listening to breath sounds as the patient visually displayed an increase in respiratory rate and difficulty breathing.
    • The eICU nurse suggested an attempt to bag the patient and check ETT placement. However the primary nurse and physician ordered ABG’s and a portable CXR which would warrant a delay in obtaining results.
    • In the meantime the patient heart rate started to brady down and the blood pressure was also unstable.
    • The eICU nurse again suggested checking the ETT as she was calling a ‘Code Blue’.
    • The primary nurse and doctor checked the ETT and noticed it was dislodged and in the patients mouth. Quick re-intubation led to prevention of loss of heart rate or blood pressure preventing a code situation.
    • Scenario 2
    • Sentry alerts revealed a low blood pressure reading on a patient.
    • The eICU nurse entered the room per camera to see the primary nurse administering a fluid bolus to the patient without improved BP results.
    • While the primary nurse was beginning to administer pressors for BP support the eICU nurse was performing his patient rounds which included visualizing IV medicated drips.
    • The eICU nurse noted the intubated patient to be on Propofol for sedation. The Propofol was at an unusually high rate. The eICU nurse and the primary nurse discussed the plan of care regarding BP control of the patient. After the primary nurse also recognized the Propofol rate to be unusually high, she decreased the rate, while maintaining sedation and

  • Something to think about?
    • Optimize clinical performance?
    • Redesign workflow processes?
    • Redundant documentation?
    • More effective daily rounding?
    • Communication breakdowns?
    • Increased clinical errors, “never events”
    • Educational needs?
    • Tracking outcome performance? Reporting methods
    • Auditing staff performance?
    • Impact on budget?
    • Technology upgrades?
    • Regulatory requirements?

  • “ The names of the patients whose lives we save can never be know. Our contribution will be what did not happen to them. And, though they are unknown, we will know that mothers and fathers are at graduations and wedding they would have missed, and that grandchildren will know grandparents they might never have known, and holidays will be taken, and work completed, and books read, and symphonies heard, and gardens tended that, without our work, would never have been.” ~Donald M.
