Personalized Patient Focus
The nurses practicing at Barton make their patients their primary focus. Individuals practice in an environment that respects and values their unique contributions. Nurses strive for care that reflects understanding of patients emotional, physical and spiritual needs. They pride themselves on providing consistently compassionate care founded on knowledge, enabled by skill, and guided by values. They build relationships with communication, empathy and caring. These relationships support the diverse South Lake Tahoe community and empower individuals by providing education and preventative health care to promote wellness through all stages of life.
The Barton nursing staff actively participates in two California-wide initiatives, CHART and the Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes, which has provided empirical based data to our staff teams which assists in improving patient outcomes. Nursing unit councils are identifying and responding to patient safety issues and partnering with leadership to create patient safety initiatives such as ventilator-acquired pneumonia protocols, rapid response teams, hospital acquired pressure ulcer prevention and fall prevention.
