As part of Stanford Health Care (SHC) commitment to patient centered care, the Nursing Department is actively involved in quality improvement initiatives focused on measuring and improving patient outcomes.
SHC prioritizes quality improvement initiatives based on the positive impact the plan will have for patients and their families. In addition to meeting internal goals based on our own monitoring and reporting and strictly adhering to state laws that influence improvement priorities, we also initiate quality improvement programs to meet external goals, including the Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goals.
At any given time there are numerous improvement projects going on at SHC. We invite you to explore some of the initiatives in which the Nursing Department has been involved.
