Overview

Complex case discharge delays, also known as bed blocking or bed delays, are a longstanding and growing challenge for hospitals across the nation. Legacy Health is experiencing these delays in our acute care facilities. At any given point in time there are 100+ patients who no longer require acute care but are unable to safely discharge. Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center stood up a transitional care unit to accommodate these patients until a safe discharge could be achieved. In 6 months, this unit has served over 100 patients and saved Legacy Health over 1000 acute care patient days. The unit has further reduced the cost of care for these patients (annualized $950K savings) and created a safe environment until safe discharge could be arranged.

Objectives:

1. Describe 3 key criteria of patients appropriate for a complex discharge unit.
2. Discuss outcome measures to determine success of a complex discharge unit.
3. Evaluate the feasibility of a complex discharge unit within their workplace.

Melinda (Mel) Stibal, MSN, MBA, Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer, Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center

Overview

There are numerous programs at Seattle Children’s that are designed to provide support for organization staff members. These were managed by separate units and sometimes overseen by different leaders. The program was reorganized to report to one leader, and an overarching evaluation approach was implemented. This presentation will review the various programs, the reorganization process, and the use of  tools that focus on engagement, recognition and support to build resilience in staff, patients and families.

Objectives:

1.  Participants will identify the foundational elements for building resilience.

2.  Participants will describe the linkages between engagement, recognition and support as they relate to resilience. 

3.  Participants will identify the importance of measuring interventions in order to guide the program.
