Making the Next Mark – The Journey to MAGNET Marches On

Magnet-Site-Visit

On August 5th, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) notified PAH Chief Nursing Officer, Mary Del Guidice, MSN, BS, RN, CENP, that PAH has achieved a Site Visit – the third of the four phased process to becoming an ANCC Magnet designated hospital. “This is a wonderful accomplishment,” Del Guidice said. “We were told by the ANCC that only 16 percent of all Magnet applicants move on from the document phase to the site visit phase as we have.”

The four phases of the Magnet application and appraisal process are: Phase One, Submission of Application; Phase Two, Submission of Documentation; Phase Three, Site Visit; and Phase Four, Magnet Recognition Decision.

Much went into Phase Two, which consists of written documentation of patient outcomes, RN satisfaction and patient satisfaction. PAH Nursing submitted 78 different examples of nursing excellence which featured improvements and accomplishments in clinical care over the last four years.

On August 6th, Nursing invited colleagues from each hospital department and physician leaders to come to the Zubrow Auditorium and announced the great news.
