Diagnosis-specific clinical care pathways are evidence-based management guidelines supported by extensive literature, spanning decades, that demonstrate the ability to reduce healthcare costs while improving patient outcomes.

This pathway when implemented in a hospital is an effective tool to reduce 30-day hospital readmissions, 30-day hospital mortality rates, and 360-day mortality post-hospital discharge.

Credits: None available.

Many nurses find themselves seeking ways to escape the pain and desensitize themselves from the trauma they endured during the pandemic. As more nurses are turning towards ways to numb this pain, we are seeing an increase in diversion of narcotics from the workplace. During this general session, we will outline and discuss the process of how a nurse is suspected of diverting narcotics and the investigation utilized prior to the accusation of diversion. We will then continue our discussion on the journey a nurse takes once their employer reports the nurse to their state board of nursing and what steps are needed to protect the RN license and obtain necessary help to recover.
