The AgeWell Family Caregiver Connection
May is Older Americans Month
The AgeWell Family Caregiver Connection In addition to being professional caregivers, many Baptist employees are informal caregivers to their older family members. To support you, Baptist Health offers the AgeWell Caregiver Support Program and a comprehensive employee benefits package with services that can help you care for elderly members of your family. Employees are invited to browse the Caregiver Support Program Page on the intranet, where you will find many resources available to you. The newest resource for benefits-eligible employees is Backup Elder Care offered through Care.com. It provides in-home, backup adult care for employees who have experienced an abrupt and temporary loss of elder care coverage. This benefit pays for up to 10 days of in-home elder care per year anywhere in the country for a co-pay of just $2 an hour. Visit the AgeWell Family Caregiver Connection in Employee Experience under My Health and Wellness to find many resources available to you.
Ageless Wisdom offered to staff Ageless Wisdom is a highly interactive, two-hour program for caregivers and other community members. It uses simulations and role-playing exercises to help participants better understand the changes that normally occur as we age, as well as those that occur as a result of diseases and disabilities associated with aging. Newly hired nurses complete the Ageless Wisdom program as part of their orientation, and other employees may also participate in the class at no charge. It is offered from 12:30 - 2:30 pm on the following dates at the Metro Conference Center, 3563 Philips Highway, Building A, Suite 106. May 22 June 12 June 26 July 24 August 21

Delirium is a sudden and significant decline that affects one in three ICU patients.
Delirium Management Initiative Earlier this year, Baptist AgeWell Institute launched a Delirium Management Initiative at Baptist Jacksonville. This initiative uses evidence-based practices for the prevention and assessment of delirium, a sudden and significant decline in mental functioning that affects approximately one out of three ICU patients. Gerontology Education Specialist Robert Trenholm, RN-BC (pictured above), reports that more than 400 staff members in nine hospital units at Baptist Jacksonville have already completed the initial training with encouraging results. Nurse Navigator Marsha Miles, MSN, RN, CCRN-CsC, said, “One of the greatest benefits of the Delirium Management Initiative is that we are now having conversations that didn’t happen before. We have begun to take a more interdisciplinary approach when it comes to addressing the issues that might be contributing to the possible development of delirium in hospitalized patients.” The Delirium Management Initiative is expected to launch at Baptist Beaches, Baptist Nassau and Baptist South later this year.

Employee Engagement Survey leads to new avenues for communication 2013 Employee Engagement Survey system-wide results
71% of employees agree that “there is effective sharing of information in my department.” 74%*
Baptist Health 2010 Survey
U.S. Healthcare Norm
U.S. High-Performing Companies
* Statistically significant difference
The 2013 Employee Engagement Survey revealed that employees would appreciate having more opportunities at the department or location level to voice issues of concern and open up the lines of communication. Since the survey results were released in August 2013, employees and leadership across our healthcare system have worked together to identify and create these opportunities. Here are some recent success stories:
Baptist Beaches CCU develops an interactive bulletin board
Jenna Grider and Amadae Arevalo created a bulletin board for two-way communication.
Employees in the Critical Care Unit at Baptist Beaches expressed that communication was often difficult because their schedule did not allow them to attend meetings, or they didn’t feel comfortable bringing up their concerns in the meeting environment. To provide another avenue for their voices to be heard, Unit Council Chair Amadae Arevalo, RN, BSN, CCRN, and Co-Chairs Jenna Grider, RN, and Elizabeth Usher, RN, created a new bulletin board system that focuses on two-way communication. The bulletin board includes a space where employees can post topics they would like the Unit Council to address. Arevalo explains, “We asked people to include information about how they would like to see the topic addressed so we have something to work with.” The topics are then
brought up at the next Unit Council meeting, or if needed, they are taken further up the Shared Governance structure. Information is communicated back through the bulletin board, including who will be responsible for follow-up on the issue and when an answer or resolution can be expected.
Patient Access Services forms an employee council
"Effective communication is particularly important at the department level, as staff rely on their direct supervisor to keep them informed. I applaud the efforts of these units to develop solutions that work for their teams." Beth Mehaffey, senior vice president, Human Resources
Newsletters enhance communication
The PAS Council
To provide a voice for its employees, Patient Access Services formed a PAS Council composed of representatives from each campus. PAS Director Jill Hillis explains, “Staff requested more input into decision-making. We created the PAS Council and held elections to determine who would serve on it. One of their first activities was to plan for National PAS Week in April. During their planning, they decided to give back by making a charitable donation of $863 to the Employee Care Fund.” PAS Council members are: Sirronda Mitchell, James Hatcher, Thomas Genes, Keasha Jennings, Marcy Miller, Stephanie Nettles and Cassandra Woods.

At Wolfson Children’s Hospital, a newsletter called Wolfson Warriors Weekly Words gives employees the latest news on a variety of topics including unit news, educational opportunities, recognition and rewards, and rounding reports. The newsletter name was suggested by Emergency Department employees Shauna Pharris, RN, and Mike Hanson, ACP, who borrowed it from the Wolfson Warriors, a group of employees who participate in local running events. A template for the newsletter was then designed by Sharon Simmons, RN, nurse manager of 4 Wolfson. In Plant Facilities at Baptist Jacksonville, a new quarterly newsletter, called On Location, has enhanced communication across shifts. It includes construction updates, safety related items and even announcements about new family members. May2014 5

National Nurses Week is May 6 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 12 National Nurses Week gives us the opportunity to celebrate our Baptist Health nurses who have twice led our health system to Magnetâ&#x201E;˘ designation for excellence in patient care. We have now begun the journey toward our third Magnet designation in 2016. During the last year, more than 165 of our nurses graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and approximately 20 graduated with a Master of Science degree in nursing.
We also honor our nurses who have advanced the professional practice of nursing at Baptist Health by pursuing additional education. Please take a few minutes to congratulate these nurses for their achievements and thank all of our Baptist Health nurses for their compassionate, professional care and service to our community. You can find a list of these nurses on the intranet.

Clairvia staffing and acuity system to launch in June Employee training is under way
Clairvia is a Cerner technology that is designed to integrate patient data from the EMR and embed this information into care team workflows. In June, Baptist Health will launch the first phase of Clairvia at all hospitals. This first phase includes the Staff Manager and ShiftAlert dashboards, which will improve inpatient staffing and scheduling capabilities. The remaining components will be implemented over the next year. Staff Manager is a web-based program that will allow staff to be involved in scheduling, staffing and open-shift management decisions online. Employees will be able to view dashboards that show schedule changes and daily staffing scenarios in real time. This means that at any time, from any computer connected to the internet, employees will be able to submit schedule requests, participate in team scheduling, sign up for open shifts, swap shifts with other employees, and view their current and future schedules. ShiftAlert is a mobile technology that will allow nurse managers to transmit alerts to the mobile phones of employees to make them aware of urgent and short-term staffing needs.
Important Dates Beginning April 28: Complete the training in eLearning End user training is primarily for employees working on inpatient units, including flex. Everyone who needs to complete the training will receive an assignment in eLearning.
April 28 – May 11: Submit your mock schedule requests in Clairvia Immediately after completing the training in eLearning, you will be asked to log in to Clairvia Web and submit mock schedule requests. You will submit up to five schedule requests for the period of May 12 – 31. These mock schedule requests will be used during the primary scheduler training for the nurse managers.
May 26 – June 2: Submit your actual schedule requests for Go-Live During this time period, you will submit actual schedule requests for the days and shifts you would like to work, as well as the days you would like to have off, for the July 6 – August 16 schedule period. The official work schedule will be balanced and published in Clairvia using these scheduling requests.

Healthy For Life
Healthy For Life works to prevent diabetes
Healthy For Life is on a mission to STOP type 2 diabetes in our employee population. In January, 25 brave Baptist Health employees were selected to join Down to Size, a year-long diabetes prevention program. The goal is for participants to have maintained a 7 percent weight loss at the end of the year. Phase One of the program concluded in April. During this phase, participants attended weekly group sessions designed to teach them healthy behaviors to lower their risk for type 2 diabetes. As a group, the participants lost more than 300 pounds and exercised a minimum of 150 minutes a week during Phase One. They used their free gym memberships at our wellness centers to get into shape, and worked closely with Registered Dietitians Jan Abdelnour and Sharon Slowik to improve their eating habits. Wellness Coach Katie Walters said, “Even during the first three months of the program, I can already see the growth and healthy lifestyle changes the group has made. I look forward to seeing where they are six months from now.”
“Being introduced to the My Fitness app and learning how good and bad fat affects the body has been an eye opener. Having others in the class with the same struggles was a huge motivator.” Yashica Smalls, Down to Size participant

Florida Blue diabetes management program saves money Join other health plan members and save an average of $1,000 per year Members of Baptist Health’s medical plan who have diabetes can take charge of their health and wallets with this new program that provides personal support for managing diabetes and lowers co-pays for selected diabetes medications and supplies. How the program works: To qualify for lower co-pays, the person on your policy with diabetes must complete three steps: 1. Visit a primary care physician or endocrinologist to complete a diabetic checkup. 2. Complete an A1C test at a Baptist Health or Quest Diagnostics® lab. 3. Participate in a health-coaching session by calling Baptist’s Healthy For Life team at 202.1819. Once these three steps are completed, Florida Blue will automatically begin applying your reduced co-pays on the first day of the next calendar-year quarter. The actual savings depends on the individual’s prescribed medications and supplies and when the member completes the steps above.
The medications and supplies listed here are just $5 for a one-month supply when you use a Florida Blue participating pharmacy. Enrollment in the program is only good for one year, and you must complete the three steps each year to re-enroll. For questions, please contact Florida Blue at 800.664.5295.

These employees have made a difference in nursing practice at Baptist Health through ExCEL (Excellence in Clinical Education and Leadership), a self-managed, professional development program for qualified registered nurses. ExCEL enables nurses to select and pursue opportunities that enhance their professional development and help meet their educational and professional aspirations. Each of these nurses will be highlighted in an edition of CareConnection.

Our First ExCEL Star
How have you benefited from the ExCEL program?
Deborah Saelinger Baptist South
It has provided an outlet for my need to be part of the solution to problems in my immediate work area. In 2006, I was a patient recipient of the healthcare system after a head-on collision, so I have the perspective from both sides. As healthcare providers, we are given a rare privilege to touch the lives of many. I believe we can always do it better. That is what ExCel is about.
Saelinger began her career at Baptist Health in 2009, working at Home Health as a case manager for wound ostomy patients. In 2012, she moved to an inpatient role at Baptist South as a wound/ostomy nurse specialist. Saelinger is described by her peers as being passionate about her work, whether it is improving patient outcomes, providing education to patients and staff, or conducting research. She feels she was born to be a nurse who helps bring others through crisis and adapt to their new normal.
Why did you become involved in ExCEL? I became involved in ExCEL in 2009 while at Baptist Home Health. I was already involved in the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality improvement activities, so I saw ExCEL as a good fit.
Kathy Strader, Baptist Jacksonville Sherry Woody, Baptist Nassau
What advice would you give nurses who are interested in joining ExCEL? Becoming involved in ExCEL is easy. Look at your work and personal life and see if you have time to work on issues you would like to change, and then get involved. Assess your existing commitments. You may already be meeting many of the ExCEL requirements, and you just need some guidance to channel your efforts. Many nurses are so committed and often get frustrated. Using that energy to affect change is much more positive.

Do you know how to handle sensitive information? Most employees in a health care environment know that personal health information, personally identifiable information, and credit card data are considered sensitive. But do they know how to handle sensitive information? Ask yourself this question: What if someone hacked into your sensitive information at your bank, took your information, and withdrew money out of your bank account? Besides being upset, you would want to know how the thief got your information. In December 2013, hackers got into the files of a major department store and stole information from the computer system. Someone else got the information and sold it online. How do you feel knowing someone can buy your personal information online? It works the same way in health care. If personal health or personally identifiable information is
stolen through a computer, the patient’s privacy has been compromised. This is why it is critical to understand that security is the responsibility of all employees, and it is also why the sensitive information of patients must be kept confidential and secure at all times. Not only can thieves use the stolen information for financial gain, but they also can use it at a hospital or doctor’s office, posing as the person whose identity was stolen. Once the doctor completes the paperwork, the visit is completed, and the hospital or doctor’s office submits the paperwork to the insurance company – and once the paperwork is submitted, fraud has been committed. Remember, it is everyone’s responsibility to protect Baptist Health and our patient information. If you have any questions, please contact the Service Desk at 202.7565 or email@example.com.
Compliance makes a difference May 4 – 10 is National Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week The level of integrity of some organizations has gained worldwide attention, often for the wrong reasons. However, organizations are recognizing that strong compliance and ethics, internal audit and privacy programs are not just smart ideas, they are good for business. To acknowledge the positive impact of compliance and ethics on organizations, the Health Care Compliance Association and the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics have designated May 4 – 10 as Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week. This year’s theme is “Compliance makes a difference.” The Audit Services and Compliance Department, along with the Privacy Office, collectively known as the Compliance Team, are committed to protecting the corporate integrity of Baptist Health by assisting and advising employees at all levels, while ensuring compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws.

Baptist Beaches now a Primary Stroke Center Baptist Medical Center Beaches has been designated as a Primary Stroke Center by the Agency for Health Care Administration. Being a Primary Stroke Center means that a hospital follows national standards and guidelines that can significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients. Baptist Beaches has a dedicated stroke-focused program, with neurologists available 24/7 to care for stroke patients, advanced imaging capabilities to diagnose stroke, and an Emergency Department team with the proper training to administer tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a clot-busting drug for patients who suffer an ischemic stroke (caused by a blockage of blood flow to the brain).
Hospital President Joe Mitrick said, “We are glad to be recognized for having the skills and technology in place to give stroke patients the immediate care they need. Seconds can make a difference in preventing severe brain damage or death.” Patients who arrive at Baptist Beaches with severe ischemic strokes that do not respond to conventional intravenous tPA will be transferred immediately to the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center at Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, as well as patients with hemorrhagic strokes (caused by bleeding in the brain). Led by internationally renowned neurovascular surgeons Ricardo A. Hanel, MD, PhD, and Eric Sauvageau, MD, the level of expertise and access at Baptist’s Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center is unprecedented in our region. Both doctors specialize in groundbreaking, minimally invasive procedures for treating strokes.
“Our stroke team is ready to receive, diagnose and treat patients presenting with stroke,” said neurologist Casey Carrigan, MD, director of the Baptist Beaches Stroke Center. “We have the expertise for rapid stroke diagnosis and the ability to administer life-saving tPA.”

Let’s Get Ready for BCMA!
On May 19 at 6 am, Bar Code Medication Administration (BCMA) will go live at Baptist Jacksonville and Wolfson Children’s Hospital. On June 23 at 6 am, BCMA will go live at Baptist Beaches, Baptist Nassau, Baptist South and the Emergency Center at Baptist Clay. BCMA automates the documentation of medication administration and tasks related to specific physician/nursing orders at the point of care (POC). This solution creates an alert to the clinician when inconsistencies occur that could result in potential errors in administering medication. This is one of the many ways we are
“changing health care for good” by making care safer for the patients we serve. The organizational benchmark we will use to measure our improvement in patient safety as a result of BCMA implementation will be the total number of good catches/near misses throughout our organization, comparing FY 2013 to FY 2014. We anticipate that our number of near misses will increase as a result of BCMA, assisting us in making more “good catches.” We will share these results as we move forward in our new
medication administration process and make a big difference in patient safety. Our goal as an organization is to complete the medication administration process with bar coded administration 95 percent of the time. So “strive for 95” percent completion of the “five rights” of the bar coded medication administration process. Your Super Users, Clinical Informatics and Information Services teams have been working very hard all year to make this process the best it can be for you and our patients. These teams will be at your side to assist in removing any process barriers and support you through this change and beyond. Additionally, your Pharmacy departments have implemented many process changes to ensure medications are ready for scanning. The entire Pharmacy team will be on hand to continue to evaluate opportunities to improve workflow and patient safety through Go-Live and well after BCMA implementation. If you have an idea of how pharmacy processes could better support patient care, do not hesitate to make your pharmacist aware. So let’s get ready for BCMA, and remember to ”strive for 95” percent!
Training Schedule: Beginning May 12, end user training begins for Baptist Beaches, Baptist Nassau, Baptist South and the Emergency Center at Baptist Clay. Staff not already enrolled should do so immediately. A prerequisite course through eLearning must be completed, and the course completion certificate must be presented when arriving to class. Beginning May 18, end user training for Baptist Jacksonville and Wolfson Children’s Hospital will close. Staff not already enrolled for training should do so immediately through eLearning. If you have questions, please contact the Service Desk at 202.7565; Clinical Informatics at 202.4750 or Amy Rosa, director of Clinical Informatics, at firstname.lastname@example.org

During May, our adult hospitals will begin to introduce our new online patient portal to inpatients upon registration. This new patient portal, called “My Baptist Connect,” is designed to meet one of the new areas of focus for Stage 2 of Meaningful Use – to engage patients and families in their health care. We are testing enrollment and dataflow processes in May and June with Patient Access Services inviting about 100 patients per week to open their secure online account. This process will start May 5 with Baptist Jacksonville and then will roll out in community hospitals May 19. Upon registration, PAS staff is now asking each individual if they would like to access their medical records online; if the patient says yes, they will be invited to enroll in the new portal, which will allow them access their test results and inpatient summary, including their discharge instructions.
Starting July, we will begin measuring against the required patient engagement threshold, which is to provide 50% of all inpatients with online access to health information within 36 hours of discharge from the hospital. The information in the patient portal is not the caregiver’s view of the EMR but rather the electronic version of the records and results they now have to request from Health Information Management. If patients have questions about their online access or about their records, they will be able to call a dedicated 24/7 call center via a toll-free number specifically for the patient portal. For more information, see the employee intranet Highlights section.
System Alerts to roll out in May The System Alert is new computer-based tool Baptist Health will use to communicate to urgent messages system-wide. System Alerts will be used for four types of incidents: IT system issues – Information about planned and unplanned down times, as well as system performance issues that may impact end users. Also includes IT security threats, such as a malicious email that contains malware or viruses.
Safety alerts – Information regarding an environment of care, safety, security or emergency management issues that requires immediate dissemination.
Other: At Hospital Administration’s discretion, an urgent facility alert regarding a critical cut-over time for a new process, such as BCMA or an on-site visit by a regulatory agency.
Weather/facility issues – Information regarding disruption of facility services, such as a water main break or an electrical outage.
The alerts will appear several manners on screen to ensure delivery of important information to Baptist Health staff. (See table below.) Alert Code

The Arlington United Methodist Youth Group has been busy knitting beautiful warm hats for cancer patients at Baptist Beaches. They presented the hats on April 10 to Roxanne Miller, LCSW, Cancer Care coordinator; Janice Kiernan, Administration; and Laura Saacke, who is a member of the Beaches Cancer Support Group. At the presentation, Saacke shared her family’s struggle with cancer and how a warm hat can make a big difference to a person who is going through chemotherapy. Each hat has a tag on it that says, “Handmade with the love of God in our hearts, by the youth of Arlington United Methodist Church.” Miller said, “Recent visitors to the Wilson Cancer Care Center have been so touched by the generosity of strangers and the fact that a group of young people would not only think about the impact of cancer but actually do something about it to help ease the side effects.” Baptist South extends a huge thank-you to these youth who are making a difference in our community.
BaptistClay Clay Happy Anniversary, Baptist Clay! May 1 marks the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Baptist Clay Medical Campus in Fleming Island. The first phase of the 32-acre campus to open was the Baptist/Wolfson Children’s Emergency Center and Baptist Diagnostics and Imaging. Five days later, Baptist Heart Specialists became the first physician office to open on the campus. The Wolfson Children’s Specialty Center began serving patients at its new location in September.
Baptist Clay sponsors county fair Baptist Clay was a major sponsor of the 28th Annual Clay County Agricultural Fair in April, which experienced record attendance this year. Saturday, April 12, was Baptist Clay Day at the fair. Employees represented Baptist Clay at a booth, and Wolfie, the mascot of Wolfson Children’s Hospital, even made a guest appearance. Pictured are: Marissa Griffiths, Danielle Sanders and Tim Mallard. Pictured with Wolfie is Anderson Fortner.
Darin Roark, administrator of the Baptist Clay Medical Campus, reports that during the first year, more than 21,000 patients were treated in the Emergency Department, as well as 21,000 patients in the Outpatient Imaging Department. In addition, there were more than 2,100 patients transferred from Baptist Clay for admission. “During its first year of operations, the Baptist Clay Medical Campus surpassed all expectations in terms of performance and growth. We are very grateful for the welcome we have received from the residents of Clay County and truly appreciate the trust they have placed in us to meet their healthcare needs,” Roark said. “It has been an exciting first year. We have seen an incredible mix of patients, from mothers giving birth, to patients suffering a stroke or heart attack. The Baptist Clay staff have responded and continue to make a positive difference every day.”
Demetrius Pitts, Officer, Safety and Security Demetrius Pitts put his life on the line on Christmas Day last year for the safety of our employees and their property. A suspicious individual was seen in the employee parking garage looking into a vehicle. Pitts demanded that he show his hands and step away from the vehicle. This individual ignored him and moved toward Pitts with an object in his hand, which turned out to be a pocket knife. N
R V I C
Pitts overtook him and brought him to the ground to protect everyone. Upon questioning, the suspect could not provide a reason for being in the employee parking garage, so he was detained until the police arrived. The police ran a background check, which revealed an outstanding warrant for the suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest. He was charged with possession of a weapon and trespassing. This event could have taken a more serious turn if Pitts had not responded as he did. Because of his efforts, there were no breakins to employee vehicles, no damage to hospital property, and most importantly, no one was injured.
