Proof an Interim Chief Nursing Executive is the Way to Go...
Decreased Infection Rates
...Meet One of Our Shining CNE's
This interim-Chief Nursing Executive is the perfect example of how interim-leadership can position your next CNE for success. Interim leaders not only afford you the time to conduct a thoughtful, thorough search for the right fit, they can tackle some of your toughest challenges head-on, allowing your next CNE to step in and move things forward.
This proven chief nursing leader has consistently identified areas to improve patient safety, clinical outcomes while making care more affordable within her organizations by keeping costs in check and reducing waste… all in record time.
While serving as interim CNE for one of the largest health systems on the West Coast, she decreased infections rates by 45%, reduced patient falls by 31% and boosted inpatient CAHPS by nearly 20%.
By the time her five month tour at that hospital was complete, she was quickly reassigned to tackle similar challenges as interim-CNE for another hospital in a nearby state, within the same system. There she focused on standardized leadership work, helping unite nursing leadership around achieving enterprise strategic initiatives. In less than eight months, she rallied nursing leaders through improved communication that not only benefitted staff, but patients too. CAHPS inpatient scores jumped by 12% and Nursing Communication achieved a 5-Star rating.
What’s more, she and her nursing leadership team worked closely to achieve greater operational efficiency which resulted in a 12% reduction in overtime and a reduction of 100 FTEs – their shared mission was simple: give patients and staff the best experience possible while assuring care within their hospital was more affordable. Mission accomplished!
