  • Highlighting 2013 Accomplishments and Outcomes

    2013 Nursing Annual Report

  • I n t r o d u c t I o n

    It is a privilege to present the 2013 Nursing Annual Report for St. Francis Regional Medical Center, recognizing key accomplishments and significant contributions achieved by our nursing staff. This year we officially began our journey to becoming a Magnet Recognized Hospital® formally recognizing our nurses and their commitment to quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.

    Our nurses at St. Francis continually inspire me. They are leaders who are not afraid to speak up; who lead initiatives that will insure our patients are receiving the safest and best care possible. They meet demands of a more complex health care environment by furthering academic education and achieving certification.

    Their professional development is apparent in many ways. Twenty of our nurses attended the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s medical/surgical national certification review seminar, hosted by St. Francis. The review course prepares RNs for national certification as specialized nurses in medical/surgical nursing

    A newly created Nursing Practice Board, with representation from all patient care councils and departments empowered nurses to have a voice in their nursing practice and patient care. Patient care councils flourished in 2013, empowering nurses to suggest, test and implement solutions to issues in their area of care. Some of the greatest understandings took place at the first All Patient Care Council. By bringing all patient care units together, barriers were broken; best practices shared and patient care was improved.

    This annual report clearly illustrates that we have a lot to be proud of at St. Francis and I am grateful for every St. Francis nurse and all they do to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

  • St. Francis’ Philosophy of Nursing was created by gathering feedback from direct caregivers who serve our patients in all departments. Patient Care Councils met jointly in June 2013 to create this unique philosophy from the feedback. It was then approved by the Nurse Practice Council. The St. Francis Nursing Philosophy has three elements:

    Nursing practice at St. Francis is based on providing exceptional patient care through caring and advocacy within a healing environment that promotes health, and empowers patients and their families through the continuum of life, and supports them through difficult experiences.

    St. Francis nurses combine the best of science and the art of caring, through collaborative partnerships and a commitment to professional growth and development that is supported by St. Francis’ Mission, Vision, and Values, the Allina Charter for Professional Nurses, and the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics and Scope and Standards of Nursing.

    The registered nurse is the leader and integrator of patient care and St. Francis’ healing environment fosters nursing practice that is a hallmark of excellence recognizing staff as the most valued resource.
