A Great Place for Great Nurses to Thrive
Methodist Hospitals Achieves Magnet® Recognition for Nursing Excellence
In September 2017, Methodist Hospitals received Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). ANCC’s Magnet® Recognition Program identifies superior quality in nursing care and is the highest national honor for nursing excellence.
Hospitals with Magnet designation have demonstrated that their nurse leaders…
- Transform the organization to meet changing needs.
- Empower staff members and prepare them to face all challenges.
- Promote exemplary professional practice.
- Foster innovation within staff knowledge, clinical practice, and systemic improvements.
- Measure and evaluate outcomes throughout the entire organization.
Methodist Hospitals is proud to achieve Magnet recognition, as this credential reinforces our dedication to quality patient care. Magnet-recognized organizations consistently demonstrate:
- Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication, availability of help, and receipt of discharge information.
- Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue rates.
- Lower rates of falls.
At Methodist Hospitals our innovative nursing governance model develops highly engaged, motivated nurses. This in turn creates an environment where patients can feel the difference of being cared for by a highly qualified staff of nurses who are very caring, listen and are attentive to their needs.
The shared governance model is an innovative program that enables nurses to collaborate with management in decision-making about patient care, their practice, and unit operations. In empowering nurses to develop and direct their own practice, the program inspires excellence in nursing.
Nurses participating in shared governance identify problems or areas in which improvements can be made. They find solutions by looking at evidence-based, best practice research. Changes are implemented that will render the best possible patient outcomes.
Nurses who are able to use their experience and knowledge are happier and more productive, which is why Methodist attracts and retains top notch nursing staff. Participating in shared governance motivates nurses to keep up on the latest findings, and many return to school to certify in their specialty.
