In a Position to Improve


“I wanted to be in a position where I would have influence over implementing projects that needed to be implemented on the units,” says Adrienne Creamer, a clinical nurse. Creamer is chair of the Unit Practice Council in the adult psychiatric unit and a part of the Empirical Outcomes Committee. “The Empirical Outcomes Committee is a systemwide committee where all the heads of the separate committees for each hospital meet together and share ongoing progress of projects they’re doing. On Four East, specifically, we’re working on increasing our sensory garden. In the future, I’m hoping to get more staff involved with quality improvement projects on the unit and increase patient satisfaction.”
