Abstract

Background and Aims Retrospective review of the transition from an old PICU to a new PICU facility. Method As part of the BC Children's and Women's Hospitals' Redevelopment Project, we worked collaboratively with an architectural and building consortium in a P3 project, while engaging multiple stakeholders to achieve a detailed design and build of a new, 28 bed single patient room PICU. Our strategies included the utilization of a structured change management framework; Integrated Facility Design; room mock ups; Early Implementation Opportunities; an Education, Training and Orientation Program; innovative nursing roles (Clinical lead and Implementation Specialist); scenario testing and "day in the life"events; and a detailed and rehearsed plan for the physical move. Results The new PICU offers patients, families and staff a high quality, state of the art, healing environment with integrated new technologies. Training and orientation for all clinical and support staff was achieved prior to move in day with a 95% compliance. Newly designed work flows were tested and analyzed prior to clinical service commencement and fully adopted with adjustments following the transition. Conclusion Our journey concluded with the successful move and transition to our new home where we continue to provide excellent care for the sickest children and families of British Columbia. The advancement and improvement of the physical environment for the provision of intensive care for children is in all our interests. In this presentation, we share our most important lessons learned, as we learned from others who went before us, in the building and operationalization of PICUs across the world.
