Quality Management in Nursing


Objectives:
Todays approaches to managing and improving the quality of health care are
moving in a new and positive direction. The need to evaluate the effectiveness of
health care organizations, from both a quality and cost standpoint is a current priority.
Healthcare executives, including nursing administrators, must ensure that their
organizations are recognized as healthy and adaptable institutions. One way of
achieving this is to develop a successful quality management system. An effective
quality management system will include the following elements: A leadership that
equips staff with the tools they need to perform; knowledge of customer expectations;
use of strategic planning with follow-through; development and management of
human resources; empowerment and involvement of employees; achievement of
excellent results and enhanced supplier relationships and contributions.
A quality management system of this kind demands a broad assessment of the
organization, including all employees. It also requires quality assurance. During the
controlling phase of the management process, standards are set, performance is
measured, and action is taken to correct discrepancies between standards and
actual performance.

Quality management and organization
The role of leadership in quality management and nursing
