Empirical Outcomes

Performance metrics are important factors Stamford Hospital nurses consider in defining and driving quality of care. Stamford Hospital currently tracks 11 nurse-sensitive indicators prescribed by the National Database for Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI), established by the American Nurses Association.
 
Those indicators are:
  • Nursing staff skill mix
  • Nursing hours per patient day
  • Catheter-associated urinary tract infection rate (CAUTI)
  • Central-line-associated blood stream infection rate (CLABSI)
  • Fall/injury fall rates
  • Hospital-/unit-acquired pressure ulcer rates
  • Nurse turnover rate
  • Peripheral IV infiltration rate
  • Physical restraint prevalence
  • RN survey with the practice environment scale
  • Ventilator-associated pneumonia rate
Stamford Hospital uses the outcomes of these reports to benchmark its performance against teaching hospitals of similar size and define areas where improvement is needed.
