7 Essential Elements of Healthcare Excellence

3 hours ago

1. Rapid Access/Open Access. As more and more people access our healthcare and behavioral health systems, naturally we want to make sure that there is easy, fast, open access to services at all hours of the day.
2. Comprehensive Whole-Person/Whole Family Care. Whether you work in an acute care hospital, a behavioral health hospital, outpatient services, or anywhere, it’s likely you're part of the forward momentum in health care, where you no longer treat just one aspect of a person.
3. Culture of Resiliency and Recovery. Let’s face it: most situations of noncompliance, hostile behavior, and even some assaultive behavior often stem from a situation where the individual feels powerless and is attempting to gain some control over their situation.
4. Outcomes-Based Care. We can only change what we measure. We should all be focused on outcomes. In terms of workplace violence prevention... Is your organization improving practices as they relate to reducing the use of restraint and seclusion?
5. High-Value Services. It’s much easier to focus on high-quality patient care when you don’t have to worry so much about how to manage and negotiate the tricky waters of workplace violence.
6. World-Class Customer Service. De-escalation strategies are all about customer service. The more staff are equipped to recognize the different levels of escalation and to professionally and appropriately respond with a focus on collaboration and cooperation as much as possible, the higher the level of patient satisfaction.
7. Staff Engagement and Wellness. People enter the caring profession because they want to give back; because they want to be a part of something bigger than themselves; because they feel called to do so.

Healthcare Culture Standards of Care

1. Organizational culture is a term that is used to describe many different aspects of how a company or group operates and the qualities or philosophies that dictate the behaviors of individuals within the group. The term is often used to describe companies, and that includes healthcare companies. Hospitals, medical centers, even doctor’s offices and insurance companies have a culture, whether it is formal and defined or more informal. From a patient perspective culture is important because it effects how they are treated, the experiences they have getting healthcare, and the outcomes of their treatment, even their overall wellness. Culture is what a healthcare organization does regularly and frequently, the behavior patterns that are consistent and that impact patients. For example, a doctor’s office that values transparency may make that a part of the office culture by creating online patient portals where patients can access their medical records and even notes doctors have written...
