NR531 Week 7:Executive Summary Assignment Submission

Case Scenario
As the chief quality and safety officer, you have been leading the initiative for the healthcare system to obtain MagnetT status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The facility applied, was visited, and has received the report. The report identifies a deficiency (or deficiencies) in one of the Five Magnet Model* components. A solution must be implemented that shows improvement in the area within the next six months, at which time another visit will be scheduled.

For this assignment, you will create an executive summary of the report addressed to the board of directors of the healthcare facility. You will choose a Force of Magnetism within one of the MagnetT model components for your focus. The executive summary will include all the following: (1) a description of one of the five Magnet components within which a deficiency (or deficiencies) exists, (2) the specific “Force of Magnetism” that is deficient, (3) the criterion used by the examiners to the indicate the deficiency and the evidence/metric used, (4) an analysis of their findings and possible solutions to resolve the issue, and (5) the impact of the deficiency and recommended solutions on the organization.

The Five Magnet Model Components* are listed below. Choose one of these upon which to focus your assignment. The link to the ANCC website where these components are described is provided at the beginning of the assignment. Within each component, the “Forces of Magnetism” are listed. The description of how these are measured, or the evidence examined to determine compliance, is also generally described on the web page. Choose one of the Forces to explore more deeply and describe how your facility was deficient. From this, you will be able to propose two potential solutions to address the deficiency found by the examiners. In your description of criteria/findings, you will need to identify the specific criteria used and the evidence of the deficiency.
