I think that community outreach is a large part of hospital programs, and should be a priority in the mind of each leader. As a nurse leader, I believe the most efficient way to communicate to executive officers of the hospital and its stakeholders could be through an appropriate professional presentation.
At the start of the presentation, I would share my vision and how it could assist patients and the organization with better overall outcomes. The methodologies I would use to assist me in allowing members to see and share my visions would include the following non-verbal communication: smiling, not standing with my back towards anyone, and making eye contact. I would also choose to integrate the Humanizing Nursing Communication Theory to inspire the executive officers of the hospital and its stakeholders. The theories behind HNCT include trust, self-disclosure, feedback and listening into a day to day provision (Huber 2014).
For example, look at the number of patients readmitted due to a lack of follow up. Many of those readmissions could be prevented even by something as simple as a reminder to take the antibiotics they were given at discharge. The care provided shouldn’t stop when a patient is discharged from the hospital. If the care continued, in the various forms of follow ups, hospital readmissions may decline. In this situation, you already have the nurse, a person who can utilize her skills, and with volunteer services could start a whole group of follow up callers.
By communicating this to the leaders of the organization through the techniques and methods of HNCT, using humanizing attitudes to appeal to my audience like empathy, caring, and positive regard for our clients, there is a probable cause for good outcome (Huber 2014). As a nurse leader I would apply strategic management to my idea through feedback and auditing. By auditing the information collected from the discharge nurses we can start to solve some of the problems that may have caused the patient to be readmitted. Did the patient not understand their discharge instructions? Did they not have a Doctor to follow up with? Did they need a reminder to fill their antibiotics? Therefore, preventing further readmissions by making the necessary changes or if the patients need further reminders to make those reminders before readmissions happen. Knowing the information, we need through data analysis means we can plan future patient care more appropriately through prevention and education.
In our organization, we thankfully do have a similar system. Upon discharge, we explain that one of us will be calling the patient within the next 72 hours to ensure they are okay and ask if they have any questions or concerns. It is part of our practice to have the patient know that just because they were discharged doesn’t mean that they aren’t still our patient.
