Quality improvement in health care organization is normally linked to the organization’s systems of care and the nature of the service delivery. In order to attain an improved and quality level of performance, health care organization management needs to transform the current systems and service delivery in order to meet the expected change (Roberts, 2014). Quality improvement in the hearth care organization incorporates: quality improvement of the processes and systems, teamwork, appropriate use of data and focus on the patients. The nurses in health care organization play fundamental roles in delivering high quality health care services and in supporting clinical decision making. The research will illustrate how nurse satisfaction can play a fundamental role in ensuring quality improvement throughout the processes, systems and outcome of the patients.
Quality improvement through nursing satisfaction
Health care organizations demand the management to ensure that the nurses working within the organization are satisfied at all the time. In the process of establishing smart care strategy for the health care organization and ensuring that the nurses are satisfied, it is of great importance to ensure that the nurses are equipped with the necessary knowledge (Melvin, 2013). The modern health care demands the nurses to be equipped with the technological knowledge in order to transform care and improve the quality of health care outcome as well as clinical efficiency.
Quality improvement through nurses’ satisfaction is a path that simplifies the nursing path, support the nurses with the necessary knowledge to use the machines and take care of the patients and reduce the non-value adding tasks in nursing (Allaine, 2012). Proper remuneration of the nurses encourages them to take care of the patients with due diligence and care. As a matter of fact, patients with the necessary knowledge in regard to the systems and the processes required to take care of the patients will basically provide individualized care and evidence based practices.
Quality improvement is a process and a system that ensures that once the nurses are equipped with the appropriate knowledge, they will transform the health care services within the process and systems to give the patients the expected quality health care (Jones, 2010). Therefore, nurse satisfaction is a major determinant of quality improvement in health care process and systems and the outcome of the patients.
