"With executive rounding, we've been able to decrease our length of stay and we've also seen an increase in our case mix index which has helped on our revenue."
Karen McCaa, Chief Nursing Officer & Vice President of Patient Care Services, Baptist Medical Center South
"We are doing SNAP huddles on every shift now. That's providing the team with the knowledge about what we need to do to move the patient forward for discharge and it's also focusing on those high risk patients. It's brought together the nursing staff with the care coordinators. There used to be a silo approach and now the whole team knows what the patient is doing and what we need to do in order to move the patient for a safe and effective discharge."
Kathy Bonney, Director of Quality and Patient Safety, Baptist Medical Center South
Real-time throughput data gives management and caregivers the information needed to make regular executive rounding valuable and productive. Teams identify and address challenges, correct and adjust quickly, and almost immediately measure improvement or mitigation.
