I have accepted a job as a Patient Safety/Quality Coordinator of a cardiac line [Cath Lab, Echo/ TEE lab, EKG, Cardiac Rehabilitation]. I will start in this newly created position in May. I have been an infection control nurse for 16 months. Before that, I was CCU nurse for about 6 years. I enjoy the IC position, but sort of missed the cardiac world. I think that this position will be a good fit for me.
I was wondering if members of this forum would be willing to share some of their "Pearls of QI Wisdom" with me. Are there any good textbooks that I can refer to to help me in this role? Does anyone have any auditing tolls that they would be willing to share? Even if the tools are not specific to a cardiac line, it would likely still be helpful to me. Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated.
