We did it! Redland and Wynnum Hospitals have been successful in their quest for Pathway to Excellence® designation!
Emotions were high after the long journey for Redland and Wynnum Hospital nursing and midwifery staff but it was all worth it to see the joy and delight on the faces of the many who have dedicated the past year and a half to documentation, education and celebration of all things quality, innovation, and evidence based practice in the pursuit of great patient outcomes.
Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Lorraine Stevenson said the dedication of Redland and Wynnum nurses and midwives to this process was second to none with 95% response rate to the survey which is just one indication of the amazing culture in the facility.
“The designation is a highly sought after, prestigious award, recognising organisations that provide positive practice environments for their nurses and midwives. The evidence is clear that these types of organisations achieve lower attrition, stronger cultures, stronger interdisciplinary teams and better patient outcomes,” she said. “We have proven we are in the elite class for this international designation!”
