4 GREETINGS FROM OUR VICE PRESIDENT OF NURSING It is an honor to salute all Lourdes nurses for your creativity, compassion, and dedication to your patients, their families, and our community. Our journey on the road to nursing excellence continues to accelerate as we look forward to attaining our 3rd Magnet designation. Magnet nurses work tirelessly to ensure that exemplary patient care is provided. At Lourdes we recognize that direct care nurses are responsible for achieving quality patient outcomes such as reducing falls with injury, hospital acquired pressure ulcers, and central line blood stream infections, in addition to reducing or eliminating catheter associated urinary tract infections. Our work toward Magnet re-designation is a commitment to advancing the nursing profession at Lourdes. Each year we recognize nurses who have been nominated by their peers throughout the organization for their distinguished service and accomplishments related to leadership, research, clinical practice, and education. Four nursing peer committees are organized annually to review the nominations in each category and select the Lourdes Honored Nurses. The Honored Nurses are rewarded with fully paid attendance at the ANCC National Magnet Conference held in October each year. We celebrate these and other nurses at the annual Professional Nurse Advancement and Recognition Program dinner. All Lourdes nurses influence inter-professional collaboration, innovative nursing practice, and exemplary patient outcomes. Because of you, we can provide care to patients and their families that we can be proud of everyday, as we endeavor to keep our patients safe and free from harm. Warmest wishes, Debbie 2 Nursing Annual Report 2014

5 Around them are all the people from Lourdes and our community working tirelessly to find them a new home, together. Cherie Wooden, RN Lourdes Nursing Professional Practice Model What does professional nursing practice at Lourdes look like? In September 2013, 40 direct care nurses gathered at the Double Tree by Hilton in downtown Binghamton to review and evaluate our Professional Practice Model (PPM). All nurses agreed that the concepts remained pertinent, with the addition of communication, but the current model schematic was too complex and wordy. Six small groups brainstormed and three new schematics evolved. The group met again in October at Lourdes, reviewed the existing schematic and the three new ones, then by majority vote selected one of the new schematics. This choice was presented at the November 7, 2013 Nursing Professional Practice Council (NPPC) meeting and was approved by the clinical nurses who attended. The new schematic was sent to a graphic designer who provided two options with two color schemes each. These options were presented at the February 2014 NPPC meeting and the following schematic was selected by majority vote of the clinical nurses who attended that meeting. The core of our PPM schematic reflects our reason for being: patients, families and our community, based on our faith as designated by the cross embedded in the Lourdes logo. Key concepts in the schematic include the main elements of professional nursing practice: Clinical Practice, Education, Research, and Leadership. Four additional concepts reflect our core values and relationship-based care: Spirituality, Compassion, Service, and Communication. 3

6 Structural Empowerment Shared decision making is both a privilege and a responsibility. Lourdes nurses have a voice through taking advantage of opportunities to share their ideas and concerns in a variety of forums. They are empowered through formal recognition for their distinguished service and accomplishments; participation on nursing, hospital-wide and Ascension Health inter-professional committees; advancing their education; and achieving certification.

10 Stopping the Revolving Door Kevin Jones In this day and age of technology, we as nurses are inundated with new processes and equipment every day. Many times within this setting, it is a given that training is provided and our patients are safe. But the story I experienced brought a unique prospective to the technology utilized throughout homecare, and other healthcare facilities. The ability to provide continuity of care and education to patients within the homecare system suffering from multiple co-morbidities has become ever more pertinent with increases in acute care re-hospitalizations and poor patient outcomes. Within Lourdes At Home, after experiencing such events, a Telehealth program was initiated. This provided a unique way to monitor patients who otherwise wouldn t have immediate follow-up in this rural community. Initially it was met by most patients with confusion, concern, and in some cases anger. Some reasoning, as evidenced by patient statements, revolved around a fear of something new or a concept of someone watching their every move. Most didn t want to have someone looking over their shoulder. Over time, the program grew and more patients started experiencing positive outcomes. One patient in particular stands out. This patient had spent the last 5 years in a revolving door of Congestive Heart Failure exacerbations and rehospitalizations. Having been with homecare for over 2 of those years it was recommended she become part of this program. She hated it in the beginning. The disdain for the monitoring was evident from the first time it was brought up in discussion to the very day it was installed in her home. As a nurse for over 5 years, I had learned to work with a variety of emotions and navigate through to find a common ground. For the first month, I monitored her vital signs through the use of this monitoring service. Every time I called her, she would answer with What did I do wrong now? After 30 days of this, I asked her what she thought my job was. She answered back in a sharp way, to babysit me, are you happy? Even though multiple nurses had instructed her in the purpose of the program, she was going to fight it. I asked her if I could meet her, so she could put a so called face with the voice she was hearing over the phone. She agreed begrudgingly. When I met her in person, it was an experience for us both. It showed me within seconds of my arrival there, my Telehealth system was the least of her worries. But it also showed her, that despite everything she was doing to push me away; there I was in her living room. We started to talk, and over the next 45 minutes our professional relationship had begun. She saw I wasn t babysitting her, but was actually on her side working with her to keep her healthy and break this chain of events which kept her returning to the hospital. Once the relationship was forged, I was able to get through with education; but also be a voice for her to her physician. She was motivated to make changes, involve her family, and was open to other services such as social work and financial counseling to help her and her family. She was able to remain out of the hospital for almost 1 year, of which her hospitalization was not related to her Congestive Heart Failure. Her only complaint when she was in the hospital for her stay was she couldn t have the communication with this monitor. The I will take the time to listen, for when I do, I will not only help others, but learn more about myself in the process. very monitor she hated in the beginning was now a tool that made her feel empowered. Empowered to control her own health outcomes. She eventually lost the battle with her Congestive Heart Failure. But when I was in her home removing the very monitor she despised, her spouse relayed to me his wife valued what I had done for her. I asked what that was. He responded, She felt like you listened, and when you did that, she knew she wasn t just another number in healthcare. The husband touched my heart that day. I have not forgotten about that patient because she taught me more about nursing than I gave her credit for. It is always about that one moment, that one patient, that one decision. I chose to meet her in person and not run the other way, but she chose to take a chance on me, and trust me. I will take the time to listen, for when I do, I will not only help others, but learn more about myself in the process. 8 Nursing Annual Report 2014
