Abstract

Data on nursing-sensitive outcomes, beyond traditional isolated indicators such as pressure ulcers, are often unavailable for nurses to evaluate the overall quality of their care. This article describes a quality improvement effort to provide nurses with both a positive and a negative patient outcomes score. The approach can make visible the often invisible role of nurses in the growing field of patient safety.
