Case Studies: Improved Vent Care Procedures Boost Care Efficiency and Patient Safety at Texoma Medical Center

Case Study

Improved Vent Care Procedures Boost Care Efficiency and Patient Safety at Texoma Medical Center

hospital location Texoma Medical Center (TMC) | Denison, TX

hospital challenges Hospital Challenges

Located in Denison, Texas, Texoma Medical Center (TMC) had a disconnect between its workflow and its ventilation-care, or vent care, liberation protocol. In fact, the hospital’s ICU had no standardized vent care and no centralized medical coordination, leading to inconsistent data upon which hospital administration could not depend. The hospital experienced historically high ventilation utilization rates and vent care days.

RESULTS

67% reduction in average vent care days, from 11.21 to 3.7 days

69% reduction in median vent care days, from 10.9 to 3.4 days

21% reduction in total vent care days per month, from 258.1 to 202.8 days
