These challenges have called for bold changes in the hospital job setting. These changes have to be put in place to ensure sustainability, affordability and the quality of the hospital care delivery system. “Care Partner Model” the new Ochsner’s designed care delivery model will aid in ensuring the quality of service delivery is improved. This will be by collaborating a registered nurse and a learning practical nurse to provide nursing care to the patients. This process will be represented in 4 stages. Body Summary: Monitoring of the Care Partner Model takes place through meetings held twice a month by a research team. There are various methods that can be used to monitor implementation of the Care Partner Model. Data collection by data collectors is one of them. This monitoring will involve assessment of direct care costs incurred in attaining the CPM objectives, pod efficiency; number of RN/RN pods per pay period; RN or LPN used in a different capacity and agency remunerations.
