The Institute of Medicine has noted that a key factor underlying patient safety problems in the United States is a paucity of quality and safety training programs for clinicians. The Greater New York Hospital Association and United Hospital Fund created the Clinical Quality Fellowship Program (CQFP) to develop quality improvement leaders in the New York region. The goals of this article are to describe the CQFP's structure and curriculum, program participants' perceived value, improvement projects, and career paths...

Veterans are often transferred from "spoke" Veterans Administration (VA) clinics or hospitals to "hub" tertiary VA hospitals for advanced inpatient care, but they face significant barriers to safe transitions home. The Transitions Nurse Program was developed as an intervention to address the unique needs of this population. A difference-in-differences (DiD) analysis was used to compare outcomes between 303 veterans enrolled in this program and veterans transferred from the same spoke sites to a second, similar tertiary VA hub...

Jordan E Goldhammer, Jillian M Dashiell, Scott Davis, Marc C Torjman, Hitoshi Hirose
When used in appropriate patient populations, fast-track extubation (FTE) anesthetic techniques and intensive care unit (ICU) protocols safely reduce intubation times, ICU length of stay, and resource utilization. The authors hypothesized that perioperative provider debriefing on success or failure of FTE would improve FTE success. This retrospective observational study included consecutive patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), valve, or combined CABG/valve surgery between February 2015 and May 2016 (N = 313)...

This study compares risk-standardized mortality rates (RSMRs) of patients with acute myocardial infarction among tertiary A (typically, advanced urban hospitals with more than 800 beds), tertiary B (urban hospitals with more than 500 beds), and secondary A hospitals (rural and urban hospitals with less than 500 beds) in Shanxi, China. In all, 43 500 acute myocardial infarction inpatient records from 93 hospitals were included. Hierarchical logistic regression was used to estimate RSMRs, and Dunn's post hoc test was used to make pairwise comparisons of RSMR between hospital levels...

Exogenous noise has deleterious effects on the developing fetus and infant. The aim of this quality improvement project was to lower the mean ambient noise level within a level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by 10% from the baseline in one year. Multiple noise reduction strategies were tested through Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement model for improvement. Strategies targeted environmental and behavioral modifications. Noise levels were recorded continuously; means and peaks were calculated...

Health policies encourage implementing quality measurement with performance targets. The 2010-2015 California Medicaid waiver mandated quality measurement and reporting. In 2013, California safety net hospitals participating in the waiver set a voluntary performance target (the 90th percentile for Medicare preferred provider organization plans) for mammography screening and cholesterol control in diabetes. They did not reach the target, and the difference-in-differences analysis suggested that there was no difference for mammography ( P = ...

Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) cause major patient harm, preventable through attention to line care best practice standards. The objective was to determine if a digital self-assessment application (CLABSI App), bundling line care best practices with social gamification and in-context microlearning, could engage nurses in CLABSI prevention. Nurses caring for children with indwelling central venous catheters in 3 high-risk units were eligible to participate. All other units served as controls...

Hospitals contracting with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) must comply with Conditions of Participation (CoP), enforced by 4 certified independent accrediting organizations (AOs) or individual state survey. Recent work documents that the system fails to achieve consistent clinical outcomes, allowing several-fold variation in mortality and patient safety. Other publicly reported evidence shows weaker clinical performance by state-surveyed hospitals, inexplicable variation in individual state surveys, and recurring disagreement between initial and audit surveyors...

Jennifer L Rosenthal, Robert Doiron, Sarah C Haynes, Brock Daniels, Su-Ting T Li
Improving physician handoffs is a patient safety priority. The authors hypothesize that standardized handoff interventions during care transitions improve patient-related outcome measures. PubMed, Cochrane, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Embase, and Web of Science were searched for publications from 2000 to May 2016. Eligible studies compared standardized handoff intervention(s) with no standardized handoff intervention and measured patient-related outcomes. Studies were evaluated independently for eligibility for inclusion by at least 2 authors in a 2-stage process; 14 articles met inclusion criteria...
