We are having an increasing challenge with completing discharge education for new diagnosis families. With our ratios and acuity, it is very difficult to complete the lengthy education by a bedside nurse. How do other institutions get this done?
Do you have an education team (other than a CNS or Nurse Educator) that performs this task like a patient educator? Maybe a group of staff nurses?
Do you have certain ratios you use when discharge education is needed? Do you make them a 2:1 for a particular time?
Thank you for sharing.
