Symposium Reflections July 30, 2017

This is a reflections from just on of the many mind-opening events of our recent Symposium. of the Symposium.

A Pre-conference was a program about the Daisy Foundation’s values and accomplishments through their recognition of exemplary nurses as nominated by their patients.   Studies of these scores have come under laser focus as reimbursement amounts are now based on those scores.    One of the findings had to do with how strongly a single negative experience colors the WHOLE experience for a patient…..even when 99% of the experience was positive.

It reminds me of a powerful paradox the sits within the nursing profession…..the fact that when nursing care is perfect, it simply shows that nothing (No THING) went wrong.   It is an absence that is difficult to describe, to count …and even to value.

So….it is fair to say about nursing….

Everyone knows when something is done wrong

No one knows when everything is done right…..because (NO THING ) has occurred.

P.S.  Your reflections welcome and much appreciated.
