Transformational leadership is vital to transcend the challenges that we all have faced in last few years. RUSH nurses embraced these challenges, seeking and implementing new solutions that result in better patient care.
A nurse-led interprofessional task force at RUSH has developed a creative approach to improving interdisciplinary communication and thus patient care.
The primary goal in creating the ED Acute Care Unit (ACU) was to decrease the volume of patients in the ED, promote patient safety and support the ED nursing staff.
RUSH leaders gathered for a two-part Nursing Think Tank Retreat in February and April of 2022.
At RUSH, we have taken many steps to ensure that our workforce is nimble enough to traverse the ebb and flow that comes with variations in the patient census.
