|Nursing Care at West Park Hospital
The nursing practice at West Park Hospital is based on the PlaneTree model of quality and putting the patients and their families at the center of the care.
As nursing professionals, we support and model an environment of caring, listening, education and “doing the little things” that help make the patient stay go smoother. We have a goal of focusing on an environment of relationships that are built on trust, compassion and professional respect between nurses and patients, physicians as well as our peers.
We believe every patient and their support system has a right to a safe, protected environment and aggressively seek ways to reduce any risk of harm to them. We also feel that each unique patient has a right to nursing standards of care that not only meet but surpass the expectation of the patient and their support systems.
We support the PlaneTree culture by adding little touches that bring our community into the loop such as quilts made by local quilting guilds for the pediatric patients, Mastectomy bags made by the youth of our community; art work displayed by local artisits and fresh baked bread and cookies prepared by volunteers.
