2018 Nursing Summit
Healthcare with a Hometown Touch
This year's theme reflects nursing in the heart of America, where we
hold in our hands the heart of the community we serve.
Each of our booths promoted a focus item from our Shared Governance council
with a hometown theme:
Development Focus: DAISY
The DAISY Foundation is an organization which honors nurses internationally
in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. BRMC frequently nominates our nurses for the
DAISY Award based on stories from patients.
Research Focus: Practice Environment Scale Survey (PES)
This year's PES inforamtion table was decorated as a library to help
bring the focus back to research.
Safety & Quality Focus: Good Catch Reporting
All staff at BRMC participate in Good Catch reporting, which involves catching
a mistake in its tracks before it has any effect on our patients. This
year's information table represented a Bait & Tackle shop.
Practice Focus: Professional Practice Model, PPM (Bakery)
To improve their practice, BRMC nursing staff uphold the Professional Practice
Model, where every ingredient makes the perfect recipe for success. In
that spirit, this year's PPM table represented the Bakery.
- Promoting Autonomy

a personal sense of commitment and responsibility.

are the "face, hands, head, and heart of the mission."
