Nursing Publication Highlight

August 10, 2018

In the July 2018 issue of Nursing Administration Quarterly the amazing work by caregivers at Swedish was highlighted. Swedish’s innovative work was published in the article “Caring Cards Preventing Patient Harm Through the Heart of Nursing." The article highlights the use of an adaption of the Kamishbai card methodology, dubbing them as Caring Cards. They used this as a strategy to improve reliability of fall risk assessment, individualized care plans, bed or chair alarm activation, and fall mat placement with the goal of reducing falls. Please read the article to learn more about the pilot. Have more questions, reach out to Swedish nurse leaders Marci.Mann@swedish.org or Heather.Martin@swedish.org.
