As a Seton nurse here in Austin, I was pleasantly surprised to find this video online about TCAB–Transforming Care at the Bedside. I am on the TCAB committee at my hospital and want to share this wonderful process with all of you.
TCAB is a way for nurses to have a voice in what they do and how they do it. Our TCAB has implemented numerous changes that make small differences in the way a shift flows; but even small changes add up over time. We all want to go to our jobs and take care of our patients, not the computer, not the chart, not the doctors or pharmacists. With TCAB, we are trying to make nursing about patients again.
Here is the video I found and I hope you enjoy it. This is just a quick look at a really important concept for nursing. Maybe you can bring this to your hospital, too.
