Susan Keane Baker, MHA
Author, Managing Patient Expectations

Too many health care organizations are using short-term fixes to patient health care delivery problems. Patients, however, require long-term solutions that treat the whole person, not just their particular ailment. What the profession needs is Smart Nursing.

Smart Nursing provides practical guidance on patient care that every nurse, manager, and health care facility can use to restore patient safety, generate revenue, reduce nurse turnover, and stimulate realistic health care solutions.

In this new edition, Fabre presents the recently updated Smart Nursing model. This practical model uses seven basic elements to deliver improved results, improved patient care, and increased employee job satisfaction. These simple yet critical building blocks- caring, respect, simplicity, flexibility, integrity, communication, and professional culture-allow nurses to create a positive work environment, and provide holistic care to patients.
Special Features:

  • Provides practical, cost-effective solutions to business and management problems, such as strategies for improved staffing and retention
  • Includes guidance on leadership and mentoring, building high-performance teams, and accelerating professional development
  • Presents strategies and recommendations for developing strong relationships with staff for increased communication and efficiency
