Quality Learning with Quick Response (QR) Codes

G

Kristen Foley, BSN, RN, OCN; Jaime Burgess, BSN, RN, CMSRN; Chasity Wagoner, BSN, RN-BC

Nurses lack reliable access to education and training on unfamiliar skills and equipment used in the practice setting. This creates an environment prone to error and compromised patient safety. The introduction of QR codes allows for quick access to videos, increasing the comfort and proficiency of performing high-risk, low-volume skills and the operation of equipment at the bedside.

Mark McClelland, DNP, RN, CPHQ

Medical-surgical nursing has become extremely complex since the emergence of the modern hospital in the early 1900s. Despite a robust patient safety movement, hospital errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. A new model for delivering nursing services on medical-surgical units could lead to higher levels of quality and nurse engagement.

E

Tiffany Caudill, BSN, RN-BC, CMSRN; Grace Allen, BSN, RN, CMSRN;Chasity Wagoner, BSN, RN-BC

The unfamiliarity of nurses with skills and equipment used in emergency situations has led to delays in initiation of compression and defibrillation. Actions taken during the first two minutes of a cardiac arrest are critical to patient outcomes. Nurse educators identified opportunities to improve response times in order to meet American Heart Association guidelines.
