  • Saudi Arabian ICU safety culture and nurses’ attitudes
    • Authors: Abdulrahman S. Alayed et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 581-593, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine nurses’ attitudes towards safety culture in six Saudi Arabian intensive care units (ICUs). Design/methodology/approach – The study is descriptive with a cross-sectional design. The Safety Attitude Questionnaire (SAQ)-ICU version was distributed and 216 completed questionnaires were returned. Findings – The findings provide a basis for further research on Saudi Arabian ICU safety culture. This study showed that the SAQ-ICU can be used to measure safety climate to identify areas for improvement according to nurse attitudes and perceptions. Findings indicate that ICU safety culture is an important issue that hospital managers should prioritise. Practical implications – The SAQ-ICU questionnaire, used to measure safety climate in Saudi Arabian ICUs, identifies service strengths and improvement areas according to attitudes and perceptions. Originality/value – To the knowledge, this is the first study to use SAQ to examine nurses’ safety culture attitudes in Saudi Arabian ICUs. The present findings provide a baseline and further details about Saudi Arabian ICU safety. Study participants represented nine nationalities, indicating the nursing workforce's diversity, which is expected to continue in the future. Such a nursing cultural heterogeneity calls for further studies to examine and evaluate attitudes and values to improve ICU safety culture.

  • Implementation of patient-focused care: before-after effects
    • Authors: Bodil Wilde-Larsson et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 594-604, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to evaluate an organizationally oriented, patient-focused care (PFC) model's effects on care quality and work climate. Design/methodology/approach – The study has a before-after (PFC implementation) design. The sample included 1,474 patients and 458 healthcare providers in six participating wards before and after PFC implementation, plus five additional randomly chosen wards, which only featured in the post-assessment. Findings – No pre-post differences were found regarding care perceptions or provider work climate evaluations. Statistically significant improvements were noted among provider care evaluations. Using aggregate-level ward data, multiple regression analyses showed that high adherence to PFC principles and a positive work climate contributed significantly to variance among care quality ratings. Research limitations/implications – Among healthcare providers, questions related to specific PFC aspects during evenings, nights and weekends had to be dropped owing to a low response rate. Practical implications – An important requirement for both practice and research is to tailor PFC to various health and social care contexts. Originality/value – The study is large-scale before-after PFC model review, where patient and provider data were collected using well-established measurements.

  • Discharge planning in a cardiology out-patient clinic: a clinical audit
    • Authors: Shirley Ingram et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 573-580, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to audit the active discharge (DC) planning process in a general cardiology clinic, by pre-assessing patients’ medical notes and highlighting those suitable for potential DC to the clinic physician. Design/methodology/approach – The cardiology clinical nurse specialist (CNS) identified patients’ for nine- to 12-month return visits one week prior to attendance. The previous consultation letter was accessed and information was documented by the CNS in the medical record. The key performance indicator (KPI) used was patient DCs for each clinic visit. The process was audited at three separate times to reflect recommended action carried out. Findings – The CNS pre-assessment and presence at the clinics significantly increased total DCs during the first period compared to usual care, 11 vs 34 per cent (p

  • Hospital rounding – EHR's impact
    • Authors: Chih-Yang Tsai et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 605-615, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to understand the time spent on various tasks during physician inpatient rounds and to examine the new electronic health records (EHRs) impact on time distribution. Design/methodology/approach – Trained observers shadowed hospital physicians to record times for various tasks before and after EHR implementation. Findings – Electronic records did not improve efficiency. However, task times were redistributed. Physicians spent more time reviewing patient charts using time saved from miscellaneous work. Research limitations/implications – The study focusses solely on work distribution and the changes it underwent. It does not include quality measures either on patient results or physician satisfaction. Practical implications – As EHR provides rich information and easier access to patient records, it motivates physicians to spend more time reviewing patient charts. Hospital administrators seeking immediate returns on EHR investment, therefore, may be disappointed. Originality/value – Unlike previous work, this study was conducted in a non-teaching hospital, providing a task-time comparison without any educational and team factor influence. The result serves as a benchmark for many community hospital managers seeking to address the same issue.

  • Quality indicators for a consultation-liaison psychiatry service
    • Authors: Rebecca Wood et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 633-641, August 2014. Purpose – Consultation-liaison psychiatry (CLP) researchers have not yet developed accepted quality indicators to measure efficiency or effectiveness. The purpose of this paper is to combine objective and subjective quality indicators to assess hospital-based CLP service utilisation, efficiency and effectiveness. Design/methodology/approach – Service utilisation rate was calculated over the service's first four years. Patient characteristics and objective quality indicators relating to response timeliness in 2012 were examined. Totally, 41 staff and 52 consecutive patients completed evaluation surveys to subjectively evaluate effectiveness. Findings – The utilisation rate increased initially and then slightly declined to 1.03 per cent of all hospital admissions. In 2012, 91.5 per cent were seen on the same referral day and 99.4 per cent by the next day. The benchmark for urgent referrals was not met (77.4 per cent). Patients rated involvement with the CLP service a positive experience (90 per cent), but were less clear about follow-up plans (68 per cent). Staff believed that the service improved the patients’ hospital course (98 per cent) and was communicated well (93-95 per cent). Only 63 per cent agreed that relevant CLP education was provided and 76 per cent rated follow-up plans as clear. Originality/value – This CLP service was evaluated by measuring utilisation rates, referral response timeliness and consumer feedback. Referral to contact time is a useful objective quality indicator but should be combined with subjective yet standardised measures surveying service recipients (patients and referring staff) to be comprehensive and meaningful.

  • Health and social care workforce planning and development – an
    • Authors: Keith Hurst et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 562-572, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to discuss the issues relating to getting the right health and social care staff with the right skills in the right place at the right time and at the right price. Design/methodology/approach – Key points arising from several master-classes with health and social care managers, supported by a literature review, generated remarkable insights into health and social care workforce planning and development (WP&D). Findings – Flawed methods and overwhelming data are major barriers to health and social care WP&D. Inefficient and ineffective WP&D policy and practice, therefore, may lead to inappropriate care teams, which in turn lead to sub-optimal and costly health and social care. Increasing health and social care demand and service re-design, as the population grows and ages, and services move from hospital to community, means that workforce planners face several challenges. Issues that drive and restrain their health and social care WP&D efforts are lucid and compelling, which leave planners in no doubt what is expected if they are to succeed and health and social care is to develop. One main barrier they face is that although WP&D definitions and models in the literature are logical, clear and effective, they are imperfect, so planners do not always have comprehensive tools or data to help them determine the ideal workforce. They face other barriers. First, WP&D can be fragmented and uni-disciplinary when modern health and social care is integrating. Second, recruitment and retention problems can easily stymie planners’ best endeavours because the people that services need (i.e. staff with the right skills), even if they exist, are not evenly distributed throughout the country. Practical implications – This paper underlines triangulated workforce demand and supply methods (described in the paper), which help planners to equalise workloads among disparate groups and isolated practitioners – an important job satisfaction and staff retention issue. Regular and systematic workforce reviews help planners to justify their staffing establishments; it seems vital, therefore, that they have robust methods and supporting data at their fingertips. Originality/value – This paper stock-takes the latest health and social care workforce planning and development issues.

  • Does process flow make a difference to mortality and cost' An
           observational study
    • Authors: Kate Silvester et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 616-632, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of the paper is to investigate the potential relationships between emergency-care flow, patient mortality and healthcare costs using a patient-flow model. Design/methodology/approach – The researchers used performance data from one UK NHS trust collected over three years to identify periods where patient flow was compromised. The delays’ root causes in the entire emergency care system were investigated. Event time-lines that disrupted patient flow and patient mortality statistics were compared. Findings – Data showed that patient mortality increases at times when accident and emergency (A&E) department staff were struggling to admit patients. Four delays influenced mortality: first, volume increase and mixed admissions; second, process delays; third, unplanned hospital capacity adjustments and finally, long-term capacity restructuring downstream. Research limitations/implications – This is an observational study that uses process control data to find times when mortality increases coincide with other events. It captures contextual background to whole system issues that affect patient mortality. Practical implications – Managers must consider cost-decisions and flow in the whole system. Localised, cost-focused decisions can have a detrimental effect on patient care. Attention must also be paid to mortality reports as existing data-presentation methods do not allow correlation analysis. Originality/value – Previous studies correlate A&E overcrowding and mortality. This method allows the whole system to be studied and increased mortality root causes to be understood.

  • Physician recruitment and retention in rural and underserved areas
    • Authors: Dane M. Lee et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, Volume 27, Issue 7, Page 642-652, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to identify the challenges when recruiting and retaining rural physicians and to ascertain methods that make rural physician recruitment and retention successful. There are studies that suggest rural roots is an important factor in recruiting rural physicians, while others look at rural health exposure in medical school curricula, self-actualization, community sense and spousal perspectives in the decision to practice rural medicine. Design/methodology/approach – An extensive literature review was performed using Academic Search Complete, PubMed and The Cochrane Collaboration. Key words were rural, rural health, community hospital(s), healthcare, physicians, recruitment, recruiting, retention, retaining, physician(s) and primary care physician(s). Inclusion criteria were peer-reviewed full-text articles written in English, published from 1997 and those limited to USA and Canada. Articles from foreign countries were excluded owing to their unique healthcare systems. Findings – While there are numerous articles that call for special measures to recruit and retain physicians in rural areas, there is an overall dearth. This review identifies several articles that suggest recruitment and retention techniques. There is a need for a research agenda that includes valid, reliable and rigorous analysis regarding formulating and implementing these strategies. Originality/value – Rural Americans are under-represented when it comes to healthcare and what research there is to assist recruitment and retention is difficult to find. This paper identify the relevant research and highlights key strategies.
