Complete five minute survey on patient and family centeredness

February 18, 2014

The results are in! The units below will receive a special prize for having the highest number of surveys completed but it’s not too late to join these teams. The survey deadline has been extended to Friday to make sure everyone has a chance to participate and let us know how we’re doing in patient and family centeredness.

Congrats to these units who had the highest survey participation so far:

Main: Emergency Center and Cancer Center Clinic
West: Emergency Center and PM&R
Pavilion: Outpatient Obstetrics

Patients and families are the lifeblood of our organization. We want to hear your thoughts on how well we provide family centeredness in our patient care areas across the system.

To better understand best practices related to family centered care we have partnered with Institute for Patient and Family Centered Care (IPFCC), an organization dedicated to “advancing the understanding and practice of patient- and family-centered care in all settings where individuals and families receive health care.”

Below is a survey developed by the IPFCC, designed to help us better understand where we excel and still have growth related to family centered care system-wide. Please take 5 minutes to fill out this survey, providing your personal thoughts about family centered care in your patient care area. Families are an important piece of the nursing strategic plan, and your feedback will help ensure that any improvement effort we commence aligns with our needs.

Our goal is to have EVERYONE and ANYONE that works or provides care on any patient care unit to fill out this survey (inpatient, outpatient, EC, Pediatrics, Health Centers etc.) This is an anonymous survey and is asking for your personal opinion! Please complete by Friday, February 21.
