5R: Internal Medicine Unit Well Organized Ward Module Amy Bruninga, RN BSN
What is the Well Organized Ward (WOW) module? Well Organized Ward is an approach to simplify the workplace and reduce waste by having everything in the right place, at the right time and ready to go. WOW uses a set process, called the 5S process, to help us find where changes need to be made on the unit. This is not just about organizing and cleaning! It is about setting up a process that makes everything ready to go for the next person. A set process agreed upon by everyone on how to keep an area that way. Monitoring and maintaining the area. Ability to change things that aren’t working. 5S Sort Set Shine Standardize Sustain
WOW on 5R Why should we use WOW on our unit? Increase the proportion of direct care time. It will make the unit look and feel better. Increase staff satisfaction by making things easier and giving them the voice to participate in the changes in the unit. Decrease error
Data Collection Who use’s the area and what for? Interview the stakeholders. Time a process
WOW on 5R Assess What are we supposed to be using the drawer for? Are things easy to find? Do staff struggle in the area when attempting to accomplish a task? What would a patient or visitor think? What does this area say about our unit?
WOW on 5R Diagnose the area and the 5S Process Sort Set and Shine
Voting commenced over where the new cabinet would be located Up to this point the cabinet was in a supply room and the telemetry boxes and leads were found there The batteries were in another supply closet with electrodes and BP cuffs The fax machine was in a totally different location The Winner is? The Zoo: a substation on our unit that contains a fax machine
New process = 232 feet travelled to put one patient on telemetry KEY: 232 feet = 0.88 minutes (52.8 seconds) What does this mean? Before it took 559 feet, Now it takes 232 feet! Every time you need to set a patient up on telemetry you save 1 minute 18 seconds of time that you can use directly caring for your patient rather than chasing down equipment!
4R: Urology Gynecology Unit Patient Status at a Glance Module Nicole Bailey, RN CMSRN
What is Patient Status at a Glance (PSAG)? The use of visual management to show important patient information so that it can be updated regularly, seen at a ‘glance’ and used effectively. Why do it? To ensure safe, reliable and efficient care by: Making shift handovers quicker and safer for the patient Making sure the patient journey from admission to discharge runs smoothly without delays Saving time looking for patient information
PSAG on 4R Team members decided on the goals of the board for our unit Goals: reducing interruptions, decreasing redundancy of information, eliminating duplicate information What information do we need to have “at a glance” and what is the most common information that nurses were interrupted for? This list was long!! From there, suggestions were narrowed down to about ten items for staff voting
5G: Diabetic Renal Unit RT2C Showcase unit Admissions/Discharges Process Module Cindy Christenson, RN

Process module on 5G: Admissions and Discharges We’ve made many changes on 5G in relation to the Admissions and Discharges How did we decide where to start this process?
Our biggest accomplishment to date… The change in gowns saves: o $3,500 in annual laundry costs o additional savings of $3,100 o 21 hours annually on 5G o 197 hours annually house-wide
