Effect of a real-time pediatric ICU safety bundle dashboard on quality improvement measures.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
Adherence to quality and safety measures (such as informed consent, presence of urinary catheters, deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis, and medication reconciliation) improved in a pediatric intensive care unit after implementation of an electronic dashboard which displayed real-time data about each of these practices. This study illustrates the importance of providing real-time data to frontline providers as a method to augment adherence to patient safety practices.
