I am doing research for the Nursing Quality Council at my hospital. They are looking for a form or template that tracks new nursing policies or changes in nursing policies. Maybe I'm not explaining this very well.
They are looking a form to include the following or more:
1) Current policy: i.e. IV dressing change every 96 hours.
(2) Proposed changed: i.e. IV dressings every 24 hours
(3) Indication for change: Include rationale for addition, State literature source
(4) Safety issues:
(5) Deployment strategy:
(6) Other comments ( including rationale for addition)
Any samples/examples, advice would be appreciated. We do not want to re-invent the wheel -- only to make it better here.
Please let me know if this should be posted elsewhere.
Thanks for you help/time,
Librarian to the Nursing Staff at St. Elizabeth Medical Center
