The purpose of this quality improvement project was to determine whether implementation of an evidence-based standardized protocol would enhance documentation and management of blood glucose levels for patients using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion during hospitalization. Using a comparative design, documentation and blood glucose control measures were assessed before and after implementation of the protocol. Although some improvements have been recognized, we continue to refine the process and anticipate stronger outcomes in the future.
