“Independent research indicates that Magnet Recognition hospitals exhibit improved nurse-to-patient ratios, increased levels of patient satisfaction, reduced mortality and morbidity rates and significantly higher educational preparation of the registered nurse workforce.” - American Nurses Credentialing Center
Nationwide Children’s has once again received the highest achievement in nursing excellence.
On August 19, 2009, Nationwide Children’s was re-designated as a MagnetTM hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This prestigious recognition is the ultimate benchmark in nursing excellence, measuring quality care and innovations in nursing practice. MagnetTM re-designation is awarded to just 2 percent of hospitals across the country.
Nationwide Children’s was the first freestanding pediatric hospital in Ohio to achieve MagnetTM status in 2005 and this latest designation will stand until 2013.
From the clinic to the operating suite, Children’s Neonatology nurses are highly trained and deliver specialized care to babies and their families. The nursing team includes neonatal nurse practitioners, case managers, operating room nurses, NICU/NCSU nurses and staff nurses. Each nurse works collaboratively with other medical professionals in both inpatient and outpatient settings to provide the best possible care.
