Nursing Team Meeting Reflection

Reflections (Experiences of delivering the presentation of the QIP):
Consider the situation/Collect information
During the presentation of my QIP, I felt pressurised by the limited of time that I have for the presentation. However, I felt more confident after the presentation as I was able to present all the contents within the time limit. I also received some valuable feedbacks from the audiences and the markers.

Process information/Identify problem
The feedback from the marking rubric shows my ability to link the quality project to the National standards and guideline. Also, I demonstrate my strength of summarising the current literature review, explaining and justifying the methodology, handling the audiences’ questions and keeping the

My second goal is to justify the first objective in my project. I will justify why educating the staff about the bedside handover system is considered as important. I took action to conduct the research on both aims.

Evaluate outcome
I didn’t find any articles mentioning the association between the bedside handover and the patient length of stay. Nevertheless, I found two studies suggested that bedside handover helps the nurses to effectively discharge the patients reducing the chances of delayed discharge (Wendy Chaboyer et al., 2009; Wendy Chaboyer, McMurray, & Wallis, 2010). Therefore, I believe that changing to bedside handover practice can help to improve the work efficiency of the nurses resulted in faster discharged rate and decreasing patients’ length of stay.
To justify my project first objective, one study shows that nurses are more compliant with the new bedside handover system after attending the educational sessions (Anderson & Mangino, 2006). It helps me to justify that educating the staffs is important to improve their level of compliance with the new

Reflections (Experiences of viewing other QIP presentation):
Consider the situation/Collect information
I am glad to have the opportunity to see different presenters presenting their QIP. It helps me to identify the area that I did good and bad in my presentation. I collect the information by carefully listening to their presentation contents, observing their presentation skills and writing down the key points.

Process information/Identify problem
Comparing to other presenters, I realised that I am able to present calmly, handling presenters’ question appropriately and keeping my presentation in time.
By reflecting the presentation from others, I picked up some good techniques which help me to incorporate them into my QIP presentation in the future. For example, using the timeline and animation, distributing handouts and showing the available online

    Traditionally nurses delivered clinical information about the patient, the clinical events on their shift and the plan of care to the oncoming shift to ensure continuity of care and to make sure that their colleagues were informed about tasks or instructions that needed to be completed by the next shift. This process had a variety of names; report, handover or handoff. The format was often different from unit to unit. It usually took place in an off stage room or office or at a charting station from away from the patients. This project aimed to assess if moving nurse to nurse handover to the patient’s bedside could promote safety and decease the length of time that it took to complete the process. The study was designed to evaluate if moving shift handover to the patient’s bedside could lead to more cost effective care and if by reducing the amount of time that nurse were away from the bedside during handover could result in improved patient safety.…

    As a staff nurse in the emergency room I had to develop leadership skills in order to effectively deliver quality care and maintain safety in a fast paced environment. By identifying safety risks associated with the assignment of inexperienced nurses to triage and discussing the breakdown in communication between physicians and staff, caused by inaccurate triage acuity levels, I effectively facilitated the change in the process of assignments to triage. Once the need of education, mentoring and nursing collaboration to support inexperienced triage nurses in role transition was acknowledged significant positive changes were experienced in staff communication, patient safety, and teamwork which ultimately improved morale. Although, I have not held a management position I have succeeded in resolving conflicts and de-escalating patient and family complaints in the hectic emergency room environment by listening and identifying the requests and views of the patient and…

    National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) (Caruso, 2007). The Joint Commission included managing hand-off communications among its 2009 national patient-safety goals (Trossman, 2009). The goals recommend that as part of high quality, patient centered care, hospitals implement a standardized approach to hand off communications, including an opportunity to ask and respond to questions (JCAHO, 2009). JACHO states the primary objective of a hand-off is to provide accurate information about a patient’s care, treatment, and services; current condition; and any recent or anticipated changes (2009). The predominant goal of bedside reporting is for better communication among staff, greater patient safety, and time efficiency (Webster, 1999).…

    Nurses follow a mission when providing care to patients who need support and healing. Many times over, the patients outnumber the nurses in many communities and institutions. When these occurrences happen, it puts stress on the nurses, their nursing care, and on the leaders and managers. "Nursing shortages and health care reform have had a strong impact on the creation of current and evolving types of patient care delivery models” (Huber, 2010). In rearranging patient care, adding health care professionals with multiple skills is likely to help the nurse provide better patient care. The new arrangement created an undesirable effect with nurses and on the care of patients. “Nurse staffing intensity, which is expressed as the ratio of RNs to patient census in hospitals, has been associated with lower mortality in hospitals” (Huber, 2010). With an increase in the nurse to patient ratio, the way nurses care for patients can be compromised with undesirable patient results.…
