Use standardized tools that don’t depend on BCC team presence. Include these guidelines in all new employee orientation. Continue to evolve the culture where extended length-of-stay just isn’t acceptable- it’s all about patient safety!
Spread program to TCU and U 23 (Med-Surg). Continue to track CHF data; start tracking Tele-Health enrollment rates. Explore LOS issues for other DRGs. Apply the lessons learned to ETOH withdrawal patients (implement CIWA protocol in Med-Surg)
Don’t assume to know either the problem or the answer before mapping it out with all stakeholders. Set the bar high! Involve front line staff early on- look for those innovators and early adaptors. Repetition is vital to create “stickiness”. Create buy-in by finding the “hook”- there may be several. Educate new staff about the program right awaycreate good habits. Celebrate successes (feed them and they will come).
