    We also have our inpatient unit on the same floor as our outpatient unit. We have started to cross train our nurses to be able to work in both settings. We also have a Primary Care nursing model on our inpatient unit and are working on extending this model to the outpatient setting with the addition of inpatient NP’s to help facilitate the communication process.

    With our new outpatient clinic space in close proximity to our inpatient division, we are looking more closely at some new processes to improve the efficiency and satisfaction for families and staff.  Do any of you have similar setups?  Are you willing to share what you have learned that works well? Or not so well?  Thanks
