Description:

Jeffrey Bomba, MBA, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patient care manager, AHN Jefferson, and Irma D’Antonio, MSN, manager of nursing quality and patient experience, AHN Jefferson, share their experience treating the first COVID-19-positive patient in Western Pennsylvania.

As the world was still beginning to grapple with the new virus, the Jefferson Hospital ICU team dynamically shifted operations to overcome the pandemic-induced care gaps, including leveraging telemedicine to ensure consistent around-the-clock intensivist coverage. The team also incorporated strategies learned by other facilities treating COVID-19 patients.

These interventions decreased length of stay and improved patient outcomes. In addition, their innovative use of mobile device technology allowed patients and families to connect safely, and a dedicated team of nurses provided comfort and support through the unprecedented times.
 
1.0 continuing education hours will be awarded for completion of this webinar. Continuing education credits apply to Pennsylvania registered nurses only.
