It's time to implement formal nursing peer review, a valuable tool you can use to promote nurse autonomy and accountability and raise the standard of nursing excellence. This resource will help you develop a formalized, non-punitive structure to examine nurses after unexpected patient outcomes to evaluate whether the care provided was within the agreed upon standards of nursing care. It also includes a mechanism to track and trend data regarding quality of care issues. Having a peer review process in place gives nursing the means to evaluate themselves in a constructive atmosphere and focus on improving the standards of clinical care.
