For hospitals, medication reconciliation is critical to quality patient care. Obtaining a complete and accurate list of the patient’s medications sets the cornerstone for good patient care during the hospital stay, informing doctors about treatments in progress, and arming them to prevent potentially harmful drug interactions.
This white paper will tell you how to implement a successful patient engagement strategy using these 5 elements:
1) Define your organization’s vision for patient engagement.
2) Create a culture of engagement.
3) Employ the right technology and services.
4) Empower patients to become collaborators in their care.
5) Chart progress and be ready to change and adapt.
Patient falls were the largest category of adverse events reported at Barnes- Jewish Hospital. Progress in meeting targets for reducing falls and fall injury rates had been static despite multiple efforts. One component of the hospital’s Fall Reduction Program was a portable bed exit alarm system—a Bed-Check Classic-Check® control unit (CU) with Sensormat® pressure sensitive mat— widely used throughout the hospital. Due to high demand by staff, the CU was often not available, resulting in delayed care delivery and staff dissatisfaction. Loss or damage due to handoff between staff and the central service department resulted in additional resources and costs.
