Description

In 2012, Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) patients were automatically slotted for PICU beds on the first night post-op.

Due to PICU access, 22 AIS surgeries had to be rescheduled.

In alignment with hospital-wide lean six-sigma management strategies, an AIS project team was tasked with development of AIS to floor guidelines, resulting in a 15% improvement in length of stay, a 100% increase in patients served and a renewed joy for staff nurses empowered to transform the lives of AIS patients.

Join Bobbie Carter, RN, to learn more about the background, implementation, and outcomes for AIS patients at Children’s Mercy Kansas City.
