Implementing a Specialty Nurse Residency Program to Improve Perianesthesia Nurse Confidence and Reduce Errors [paper]
Medical errors are the third most common cause of death in the United States (Markary & Daniel, 2016) and cost society approximately $20 billion a year (Rodziewicz et al., 2021). The purpose of this quality improvement (QI) project was to increase new perianesthesia nurse residents’ confidence levels in preparing patients for surgery and to decrease surgical delays related to perioperative nursing care, in an acute care hospital in Austin, Texas, through a perianesthesia-specific nurse residency program.
A capstone project submitted to the St. David's School of Nursing at Texas State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Nursing, December 2021.
