Abstract

Bedside nurses can be key in improving care. Engaging the workforce to develop processes and work through implementations can be challenging. This article focuses on a framework to help leaders engage bedside nursing staff in developing quality initiatives within their work environment. The framework, implemented in a large academic hospital in New York State, was used to reduce hospital falls. Falls reduced by 30% during the year-long implementation, despite an increase in patient volume.
