Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this IOM book back when it first came out, lost my copy and bought another, just to keep having it. At one point, the book goes into "the Toyota system" (Deming's Total Quality Control applied to an actual working system) as a good model, but it begins with a situation (that I don't specifically recall, and I don't have it with me) that was very familiar from a real-world perspective on how things in the nursing world are often tweaked by managers and administrators to appear other than they are. When it comes to taking care of patients, nurses are really the ones in charge. I worked in the ICU 12-hour nights for 20 years and we were the ones who decided when to call the doctor, who stopped the bleeding and started he codes. It would be good to have a place called The Nurses' Hospital (instead of "The Doctors...") where nurses are the ones that set policies to benefit patients, because we are the ones who know.
I recommend this book highly for those who care about patients, about nurses, and about health care. Myself, I'm getting my third copy, because I respect it and want to have it handy to refer to.
