Use of Visual Aid to Promote Compliance with Hourly Rounding

Project Description: Compliance with hourly rounding on unit 74 averages between 15-20%. Stephanie Heinis, RN on unit 74 was involved in the Leadership Fellowship and made hourly rounding her fellowship project. Through research, Stephanie found the Visilert device. This device provides a visual aid for staff to remind them the patient has not been rounded on in the last hour. Stephanie contacted the company that manufactures the device and received an auxillary grant to purchase the devices. The project will include education for the staff and patients, product instillation, monitoring of hourly rounding compliance, and staff feedback.
