Time For A Change
Holly Edson, RN, Assistant Nurse Manager, PACU/Pain Clinic, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center – Colton, CA
An associate of Hollys’ saw the curtains at the ANCC Magnet Conference and thought the curtains would be a good addition to the PACU & Pain Clinic. Holly requested a trial curtain that was placed next the Nurses station so that staff could hear what the patient’s thought, and for themselves too.
They observered that the patient’s seemed more relaxed, just like the staff. After sixteen years it was time for a change. And what a change it’s been. Looks like a whole new PACU and all they did was change the curtains.
