Practice The Right "Rights": A Strategy Promoting Effective Immunization Delivery

Sarah Muegge, MSN, RNBC
 

If you think immunizations are primarily a pediatric issue, think again. Within the last decade, vaccine schedules have expanded to include more age groups and special populations than ever before. It is challenging to stay abreast of topics such as new products, administration schedules, storage recommendations, and important documentation requirements. Most nurses are familiar with the original "five rights" of medications administration: right patient, right drug, right dose, right time, and right route/site. By incorporating several additional "rights" into practice and through accessing the "right resources," ambulatory nurses can increase their confidence and effectiveness in delivering the right immunizations, on time, every time.

Nurses deserve a purposeful, meaningful orientation. New nurses entering a health care system frequently attend a hospital orientation, followed by a general nursing-based orientation. Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH, is one of the country's largest not-for-profit, freestanding pediatric health care networks. The hospital employs over 2,200 nurses. At Nationwide Children's Hospital, the acronym for the nursing orientation is called LAUNCH (Learning And Understanding Nationwide Children's Hospital). LAUNCH, like many other nursing orientations, includes essential information about quality care, safety, infection control, ethics, shared governance, assessments, emergency response, regulatory body information, policies, and procedures.

Most of us, when we hear hoof beats, think of horses. It's so easy to look at a picture and see what you most expect. As ambulatory nurses, we need to look for the unexpected - a zebra instead of a horse. The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) would like us to "Think Zebra."

The role of the RN in the outpatient setting is ever evolving, especially in light of new initiatives, including health care reform, the medical home model, and meaningful use standards. Expectations of other health care professionals regarding the role of the RN in the ambulatory setting may vary from clinic to clinic and from organization to organization. Today’s health care arena demands that RNs utilize their multi-dimensional skill set and scope of practice in an efficient and fiscally responsible manner.

The After Hours Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provides telephone triage during nights, weekends, and holidays for 27 pediatric practices and two specialty offices. From September 1997 to October 2009, nurses commuted to the After Hours Call Center located in an office building in a densely populated area of the city of Philadelphia. One challenge for management of the center had been staff members' dissatisfaction with the time of their shift, working weekends and holidays, and the necessity to travel and work in an urban setting during non-daytime hours. Staff dissatisfaction translated into suboptimal staffing due to decreased retention. It also became difficult to attract experienced pediatric nurses to work for the program. Beginning in October 2009, the After Hours Program's nursing staff was gradually moved to home-based offices with the transition to home completed by the end of November 2009.

Exposure to bloodborne pathogens via needlesticks and blood and bodily fluid exposures continues to be a significant problem among nurses and other health care workers. The pathogens of serious concern are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Though the risk of transmission is low, the fear and anxiety after an occupational exposure can be devastating.
