2023 Together - P453 - Virtual Acute Care Nursing: Impacting Experience With One Click - On Demand
Discover how a nurse-led, interprofessional team implemented virtual acute care nursing (VACN) practice in a new and innovative care delivery model. This practice innovation uses an audiovisual, bidirectional communication tool (tablet) to connect virtual nurses to patients, families and clinicians with the click of a button. VACN utilization has led to improved patient outcomes and has positively impacted the nursing practice environment. Redesigning the nursing workflow to include the VACN has allowed bedside nurses to prioritize hands-on care while the VACN can complete tasks such as admissions, discharges, documentation of assessments, education and coordination of care.
