Interstitial operations, from Molecules to Jewels

A recent article showed how achieving "Magnet status" in hospitals has helped provide a better quality of care and lowered patient mortality rates in those hospitals.

Magnet status is an award given by the American Nurses' Credentialing Center to hospitals that satisfy a set of criteria designed to measure the strength and quality of their nursing. Only 8% of US hospitals have received the award.

One of the keys to achieving Magnet status is the focus on operational excellence, specifically in these areas:

  • employee satisfaction and retention
  • professional development
  • aligning daily activities with a strategy based on best practices and the best patient outcomes
  • enhancing accountability and measuring progress.

This is yet another way that operational excellence can help improve results in your organization.
