Date:11/11/2008

One of the most prestigious awards in nursing, The Magnet Prize, was awarded to Abington Memorial Hospital (AMH) for its Daily CARE Plan at the National Magnet Conference recently in Salt Lake City, UT. This was the sixth year the award was presented.

Abington, PA (Vocus) November 11, 2008 -- One of the most prestigious awards in nursing, The Magnet Prize, was awarded to Abington Memorial Hospital (AMH) for its Daily CARE Plan at the National Magnet Conference recently in Salt Lake City, UT. This was the sixth year the award was presented.

Bestowed to one Magnet hospital each year by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the Magnet Prize recognizes extraordinary inventions that transform work environments. This award serves as a means for acknowledging peak performance within credentialed Magnet organizations and recognizes cutting-edge research, practices, services, technologies, programs or other exemplary innovations with demonstrable positive outcomes.

AMH won for its Daily CARE Plan, a patient information sheet that provides current and relevant information regarding the patient's plan of care, which is distributed each day to patients and their families. This tool contains daily clinical information about the patient from the hospital's clinical information system.

"Patients are kept informed about the medications they are receiving, tests and procedures scheduled for the day, and other pertinent information, such as allergies and advanced directives," said Barbara Wadsworth, chief nursing officer, AMH. "Using layperson's language, the Daily CARE Plan encourages the patient to become a partner in their plan of care as the patient accesses and reviews information pertinent to their hospitalization."
