This self-assessment tool allows hospitals to understand the range and breadth of elements under patient- and family-centered care. The Organizational Assessment Tool establishes baseline performance, tracks performance, and reports progress in addressing hospital-acquired conditions. Establish a baseline to track progress in the following areas: progress in the following areas: Safety, Culture, Leadership, Measurement, Medication, Purchasing Practice, Procedures, Risk Management, Nursing Practice, Communication, and Infection Control.
Hospitals in a Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) should contact their HEN for access to the online version. Your HEN can work with you to be sure you understand the purpose of the tool and can provide targeted resources and feedback based upon your self-assessment.
