Exceptional health care depends on an outstanding team of practitioners—and nurses are an integral aspect of that care. At Tufts Medical Center and the Floating Hospital for Children, our highly skilled nurses work side-by-side with physicians and other experienced professionals to provide a continuity of care that enhances patients’ outcomes. Whether you are expecting a baby, undergoing surgery, managing a chronic condition or anything in between, we build a lasting relationship with you, identify your needs and advocate for your health. We work in a variety of specialties throughout the hospital to deliver evidence-based care that puts patients and their families first.
Patient- and family- centered care
Patient-family-centered care is the foundation for the design and delivery of care at Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children. We are committed to partnering with patients and families to assure we meet and exceed their healthcare needs. A major initiative that formally launched in 2012 was our model for shared governance or shared decision making across Patient Care Services. We recognize that incorporating the needs, perspective and expertise of each member of the health care team strengthens our organization.
Focused on quality and safety
We also benefit from closely examining factors that affect Quality and Safety. Learning from mistakes and being accountable for performance in an environment free from blame are key elements in ensuring safety and a fair and just culture. We routinely review our performance and share it with others. This transparency is an essential demonstration of our commitment for excellence.
Care across the healthcare continuum
Lastly, we understand that care doesn’t end once you leave Tufts Medical Center. That’s why our nurses partner with you and your family to help manage medications, educate you about your health and assist you in succeeding in caring for yourself at home. With a large number of baccalaureate- and master’s-trained nurses providing care at your bedside and beyond, you can rest assured that your health is in experienced hands.
