Abstract

In this project, 2 performance improvement (PI) methodologies were used to evaluate the process of nursing admission and history collection. Nurses have a responsibility to methodically assess bedside care, ensuring that practice changes do not merely add on to an often inefficient workload but add value. This article illustrates the use of PI to modify the initial nursing inpatient admission assessment process.
