CHOC AT MISSION CLINICAL DOCUMENTATION TEAM HONORED AS A NATIONAL "BEST NURSING TEAM" BY ADVANCE FOR NURSES MAGAZINE
April 14, 2008

CHOC at Mission was honored today by ADVANCE for Nurses magazine, a biweekly magazine serving 1.7 million healthcare professionals, for having one of the nation’s five “best nursing teams” for 2008.  A representative from the publication presented an award to a CHOC at Mission team of nurses who were dedicated to the creation and implementation of online clinical documentation, including the development of an electronic medical record – with an emphasis on enhancing patient safety.  The team will be featured in a cover story in the April 28th issue of ADVANCE for Nurses.

The CHOC at Mission team, called BEARS (Bridging Electronic Access to Records for Safety) in homage to the hospital’s CHOCO Bear mascot, dedicated countless hours to ensure a successful “go live” date of May 15, 2007.  Their success in this area is a demonstration of their commitment – and the hospital’s commitment – to information technologies that transform and elevate the efficiency, quality and safety of CHOC at Mission’s programs and services.  CHOC at Mission’s online clinical documentation system puts best practice guidelines, decision support tools and other safety checks at the caregivers’ fingertips, taking patient care to the next level.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary this summer, CHOC at Mission, developed by Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) in collaboration with Mission Hospital, is housed in a state-of-the-art medical facility on the 5th floor of Mission Hospital’s patient care tower.  While it operates as a separately licensed facility with its own medical staff, CHOC at Mission is linked to Mission Hospital’s regional trauma center, high-level obstetric and perinatal program, and ancillary services.  The 48-bed “children's hospital-within-a-hospital” serves as the only dedicated pediatric health care center for families in the communities throughout South Orange County, coastal areas and North San Diego.

 

 

Named one of the best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report (2014-2015) and a 2013 Leapfrog Top Hospital for the highest quality of care, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children's) is exclusively committed to the health and well-being of children through clinical expertise, advocacy, outreach, education and research that brings advanced treatment to pediatric patients. Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, CHOC’s regional health care network includes two state-of-the-art hospitals in Orange and Mission Viejo, many primary and specialty care clinics, a pediatric residency program, and four clinical centers of excellence - the CHOC Children’s Heart, Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Hyundai Cancer Institutes..

CHOC earned the Gold Level CAPE Award from the California Council of Excellence, the only children’s hospital in California to ever earn this distinction, and was awarded Magnet designation, the highest honor bestowed to hospitals for nursing excellence.  Recognized for extraordinary commitment to high-quality critical care standards, CHOC’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is the first in the United States to earn the Beacon Award for Pediatric Critical Care Excellence.
