Aim/Client Goals for Engagement
HealthLinx’ aim was to provide an immediate SIMCU Nurse Manager leadership solution to a high risk area and achieve mutually agreed upon goals resulting in improved outcomes. In addition, we would provide a seamless handoff between the Transitional Leader and the identified Permanent Leader.
Following an initial conversation with the client organization, The HealthLinx Outcome Driven Deliverables Process was implemented as part of the Transitional Leadership (TL5) project.
HealthLinx always performs a diagnostic assessment, sets realistic expectations, and then uses its proven processes and best practices. Using this highly prescriptive process, all levels of the organization were engaged to develop and then execute the transformational plan.
- Implemented consistent leader rounding
- Discontinued use of central line cart; annual savings of $18,000.
- Implemented hourly rounding, resulting in decreased falls and improved patient satisfaction.
