1 Nurse Sensitive Quality Indicators (NSQI) Definitions and Reports October 2, :00 – 1:00 p.m.

2 Presenters Jim Cannon, Executive Director, Health Information Program, Washington State Hospital Association Carol Wagner, Vice President, Patient Safety, Washington State Hospital Association Anne Wagg, National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) Program Coordinator, Central Washington Hospital, Wenatchee, Washington Photo Not Available

3 Web Cast Overview Why are we making this effort? Jim Cannon What are you going to be asked to do? Carol Wagner What is the tool? What are the definitions? Stories from the field Anne Wagg What will you get out of the system? Jim Cannon

4 Nurse Staffing Agreement NWONE, WSHA, and the three nursing unions agreed to work together to address nurse staffing and quality of care issues, including data collection. One outcome was a Memorandum of Agreement. NWONE and WSHA boards endorsed the legislation and Memorandum of Agreement.

5 Memorandum of Agreement Data Collection Surveyed on nurse sensitive quality indicators. Based on the results, five indicators were selected for collection. Steering committee agreed to give due consideration for the need not to create unreasonable data collection burdens.

6 Overview of the NSQI Project Monthly, five NSQIs will be collected at the unit level. Hospitals report data to WSHA via web-based tool – Quality Benchmarking System (QBS). Reports will be generated for hospitals and nurse staffing committees.

7 Nurse Sensitive Quality Indicators Consistent definitions between: National Quality Forum (NQF) National Database on Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) Coalition for Nursing Outcome Indicators (CalNOC) The Washington NSQI Project

8 Data and Quality Care Unit level data will inform administrators, managers, and clinicians Use by hospitals’ nurse staffing committees Illustrates effect of staffing decisions on patient care Support quality performance improvement

9 NSQI: The Indicators Patient falls Falls with injury Pressure ulcer rate/prevalence Nursing care hours per patient day – direct variable hours Skill mix

10 Collection Tool: QBS Data collection is through WSHA’s Quality Benchmarking System (QBS). Six hospitals are piloting the system: Grays Harbor Community Hospital, Central Washington Hospital, Harrison Medical Center, Kadlec Medical Center, United General Hospital, and Swedish Health Services. Secure, easy to use, web-based application. Help is available for data display, analysis, and timely dissemination.

11 Quality Benchmarking System QBS allows users to input data and track, compare and analyze their hospital’s data immediately. Data displayed using trend, bar, and control charts. Data exportable for reports and presentations.

24 Falls with Injury Description: All documented patient falls with an injury level of minor or greater.

25 Falls with Injury Data Elements: 1.Month / Year 2.Type of unit 3.Number of injury falls 4.Patient days

26 Falls with Injury Numerator Statement: Number of patient falls with an injury level of minor or greater by type of unit during the calendar month X 1000.

27 Falls with Injury - Numerator Included Populations: Patient falls occurring while on an eligible reporting unit An injury level of minor or greater defined as: 1.None – patient had no injuries resulting from the fall. 2.Minor – results in application of a dressing, ice, cleaning of a wound, limb elevation, or topical medication. 3.Moderate – results in suturing, application of steri-strips/skin glue, or splinting. 4.Major – results in surgery, casting, traction, or required consultation for neurological or internal injury. 5.Death – results in death as a result of the fall.

28 Falls with Injury - Numerator Excluded Populations: Visitors Students Staff Members Falls by patients from eligible reporting unit, however patient was not on unit at time of fall (e.g., patients falls in radiology department) Falls with an injury level of “none” Falls by persons who are not patients, e.g., hospital staff, visitors. Falls on other unit types (e.g., pediatric, obstetrical, rehab, etc)

29 Falls with Injury Denominator Statement: Patient days by type of unit during the calendar month.

30 Falls with Injury - Denominator Included Populations: Inpatients, short stay patients, observation patients and same day surgery patients who receive care on eligible inpatient units for all or part of a day. Excluded Populations: Patients in units other than medical, surgical, medical/surgical, ICU and step-down.

31 Pressure Ulcer Rate/Prevalence Description: The total number of patients that have nosocomial (hospital-acquired) stage II or greater pressure ulcers on the day of the prevalence study.

32 Pressure Ulcer Rate Data Elements: 1.Day of First Staff Discovery/Documentation of Pressure Ulcer 2.Day of Hospitalization for Patient on Prevalence Study Day 3.Observed Pressure Ulcer 4.Observed Pressure Ulcer – Hospital Acquired 5.Observed Pressure Ulcer – Stage 6.Admission Date 7.Birthdate 8.Month 9.Year 10.Type of Unit

33 Pressure Ulcer Rate Numerator Statement: Patients surveyed on an eligible reporting unit that have at least one stage II or greater [National Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP)] nosocomial pressure ulcer on the day of the prevalence study.
