the heart of patient family-centered care here at UAMS is the belief that
nurses and families are partners, working together to best meet the needs of
Excellence in health care happens when we work together and honor the
expertise each individual brings to every health encounter.
nursing is embarking on this concept by moving our nursing hand off/report
to the bedside at each shift change and by conducting interdisciplinary
rounding each day with our health care teams. We
acknowledge that families are allies for quality and safety at UAMS.
working together, families and nurses are strengthened by their partnership
and shared knowledge. This results in the highest quality of care.
