VII. Pleural biopsy and thoracentesis. VIII. Maximal inspiratory/expiratory pressures. IX. Metabolic studies. X. Body plethysmography studies. ASPECTS OF CARE 1. The Performance Improvement Program for Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab shall monitor those important aspects of care (performance aspects) which are felt to be high risk, high volume or have demonstrated a trend toward potential negative patient outcome (problem prone). In addition, those aspects of care which have been identified through the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process as an area where a system or process of patient care may be improved, shall be monitored. Aspects of care shall be identified and chosen for monitoring through a collaborative effort utilizing information obtained from Nursing Services, Administration, Utilization Management Department, Regulatory Body reports, Medical Staff evaluation and other clinical services throughout the facility, as appropriate. 2. Proposed aspects of care for assessment include, but are not limited to: A. Respiratory therapy treatments delivery as per written physician order B. Correct modalities of respiratory therapy treatments delivered as per physician order C. Correct respiratory therapy medications administered as per physician orders (Missed Therapies)

3 Page 3 of 5 N: 11/09 C: 05/12 R-NC: A D. Alarm Parameters for ventilated patients documented correctly on the ventilator flowsheet E. Evaluation and effectiveness of continuous supplemental oxygen F. Infection control practices, including Standard Precautions G. Safety practices for all department members H. Performance and documentation of instrument and equipment preventative maintenance and safety checks I. Practicing of Infection Prevention Precautions as necessary J. Number of ventilator days K. Critical ABG values in NICU Time needed to report value to Physician 3. Aspects of care are subject to change due to the collaborative processes outlined above. INDICATORS 1. Indicators (performance measures and outcomes) will be established as a means to systematically monitor the identified aspects of care in an ongoing manner, and to provide operational linkages between the risk management functions related to the clinical aspects of patient care and safety and the quality improvement functions. Indicators will relate to the identified aspects of care and will be specific and measurable. Indicators will be structured to relate to both the processes and outcomes of patient care. Indicators will pertain directly to Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab practices and will use objective criteria that reflect current knowledge and clinical experience. DATA COLLECTION AND MONITORING METHODOLOGY 1. Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab will routinely and systematically monitor and evaluate major patient care-related activities in a continuous and ongoing manner. Existing information from risk activities that may be useful in identifying clinical problems and/or opportunities to improve the quality of patient care will be accessible and included in the monitoring and evaluation of PI functions. 1. Monitoring and collection of data will be performed with a frequency sufficient to identify departures from the criteria, problems in patient care and areas for improvement. An outline of actual aspects of care under review will include description of the frequency of monitoring for each activity, how and from where the data will be obtained. 2. Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab will maintain a PI log for the routine collection of data on selected aspects of care. The Chief of Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab, with approval from the Medical Director, shall establish standards for compliance with each

4 Page 4 of 5 N: 11/09 C: 05/12 R-NC: A criterion for all indicators under review. Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab will monitor the selected aspects of care at a predetermined frequency and enter the result of compliance on the respective data collection record. The director of the department or his/her designee will aggregate the data collected for reporting purposes. 3. Data shall be collected from a variety of sources to analyze patterns or trends in care, including but not limited to: MediLinks, daily logs, computer reports, daily census reports, QC charts, medical records and/or other reviews. EVALUATION 1. The Director of Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab and the department as a whole shall review and evaluate the data presented for analysis of outcome. Evaluation shall focus on identifying opportunities to improve both the processes of patient care and actual identified problem areas that effectuate a negative outcome. Conclusions shall be drawn regarding the evaluation of data presented with recommendations to be considered. ACTION 1. Upon review of the data presentation, conclusions and recommendations, Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab shall take actions to resolve identified problems, and shall direct efforts to those areas which have the greatest potential for improving patient care. Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab shall utilize existing hospital resources, committees and problem-solving techniques to resolve identified problems and improve patient care. ASSESSMENT FOR EFFECTIVENESS 1. Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab shall perform follow-up monitoring to ensure that actions taken are effective and that any progress achieved is sustained. The criteria used for follow-up monitoring should be the same or similar to those used in the initial identification of the problem/opportunity for improvement; however, the sample size may vary or focused monitoring may be utilized for effectiveness. COMMUNICATION/INTEGRATION OF INFORMATION 1. The Director of Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab shall ensure that documentation is maintained and that reports are forwarded as prescribed by the hospital wide PI plan. Medical staff committees reviewing the outcome of Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab ongoing PI activities include: Medical Staff Service Committee, hospital wide Quality

5 Page 5 of 5 N: 11/09 C: 05/12 R-NC: A Improvement Committee and the Medical Executive Committee. Other medical staff and clinical department committees may also receive quality-related information as appropriate. The frequency of reporting shall be as defined in the hospital wide PI plan, but will not be less than Bi-annual. Documentation and reports may include some or all of the following: A. Findings from monitoring activities B. Conclusions regarding identified opportunities for improvement C. Recommendations concerning potential actions D. Actions taken to effectuate change E. Outcome of action effectiveness (results of follow-up monitoring performed to determine extent of effectiveness) A sample Respiratory Care/Pulmonary Diagnostic lab Quality Improvement Dashboard is saved as (Attachment B) for review.
