Dear Patients, Family Members, and Valued Guests,
Welcome to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJ) and The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH) where the nursing team has a leading voice in providing excellence in safety, service, and quality with every patient and family encounter.
As a nationally recognized academic medical center, RWJ provides an optimal healing environment in which our nurses deliver the highest level of evidence-based care through a patient-centered care delivery model. A patient-centered care approach provides the framework to support the efforts of our nurses and interdisciplinary team members to thoughtfully include patients and families in health care decision-making and goal setting as a means to achieve the highest safety and quality outcomes.
Our nursing team is paramount to the many successes realized at RWJ. Most recently our hospital earned an “A” for safety from the Leapfrog Group, a national group comprised of experts in patient safety. Through their commitment to excellence, our nurses achieved for the fourth consecutive time, Magnet™ recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Our surgical cardiothoracic nurses received the Gold Level Beacon Award for Excellence from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. Our Pediatric Advanced Comprehensive Care Team was awarded the New Jersey Hospital Association’s Hospital Research and Education Trust Award and Magnet Prize Honors for their community outreach efforts for end of life care in children suffering from devastating illnesses. A testament to our nurses’ dedication to safety, service, and quality was further realized in January when RWJ was awarded the 2011 American Nurses Association Award for Outstanding Nursing Quality, the only New Jersey hospital to receive such an honor.
It is a privilege and honor to lead such an esteemed nursing team that places the safety, service, and quality of our patients and families above all else. Individualizing the care provided by RWJ nurses to meet the needs of our patients, families, and communities remains the top priority in our quest for continual achievements and enhanced excellence in nursing practice.
