CNOR STRONG AND GROWING STRONGER

CNOR surgical services
NOVEMBER 30, 2012
Operating room nurses can make all the difference to a patient undergoing surgery, so Bozeman Deaconess Health Services is pleased to announce it has earned the CNOR® Strong designation from the Competency & Credentialing Institute (CCI). The CNOR Strong designation is given to facilities in which at least 50% of its OR nursing staff are CNOR certified. This is the first year CCI has awarded this elite status to facilities nationwide.

“CNORs demonstrate a commitment to provide evidence-based patient- and family-centered care during the surgical experience,” said Director of Surgical Services Shelly Satterthwait RN, MHSA, CNOR. Added Surgical Services Educator Rachel Pruitt, RN, BSN, CNOR, CRNFA, “At Bozeman Deaconess, the operating room nursing team has made this commitment to be strong patient advocates ensuring patient safety.”

CNOR is a definition, not an acronym. CNOR® certification is defined as: "the documented validation of the professional achievement of identified standards of practice by an individual registered nurse providing care for patients before, during and after surgery." It is an objective, measurable way of acknowledging the achievement of specialty knowledge beyond basic nursing preparation and RN licensure.

“Patient safety and positive surgical outcomes are of the utmost importance to a facility, and supporting nurses as they exceed expectations to achieve their perioperative nursing certification shows Bozeman Deaconess’ commitment to its core values,” said CCI Board President Pamela D. Gorgone, MS, RN, CNOR, CPN. “What you do for your patients is outstanding. CCI is truly honored to work with elite nurses in such fine facilities.”

INTERNAL MEDICINE

Our internists are doctors for adults--both in treating disease and keeping patients well. As specialists in adult heath care we care for our patients for life. We oversee our patient’s care even when other doctors are involved.

Medical Home
Medical Home is a team-led, patient-centered approach to health care, where the patient is the most important player on their healthcare team.  The patient and the medical home team develop a plan of care created specifically for the patient, focuses on wellness and prevention, keeps the patient connected with the health care team and coordinates care with other health care providers.
We offer open scheduling and expanded hours for our patients convenience. Patient-Centered Medical Home practices result in better quality of care and lowed costs for the patient by increasing access to more efficient, more coordinated care. By avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits, these early results are producing savings for payers, purchasers and patients.
