The Nursing Quality Program at Boston Children's

The Nursing Quality Program at Boston Children's Hospital provides the ongoing improvement of the delivery, quality, efficiency and outcomes of patient care and services. We accomplish this through a systematic examination of data we generate here at the hospital. 

We use this information for decision-making, evaluation and improvement activities. We also use it to identify care issues that may benefit from performance improvement or focused evidence-based initiatives. All quality activities are done in accordance with standards of professional health care practices, regulatory and licensing agencies and in support of the overall hospital mission and strategic plans.

Ongoing Initiatives 
  • Fall Prevention
  • Pressure Ulcer Prevention
  • Pain Management
The Nurse Executive Committee for Quality (NECQ) is responsible for:  
  • Ongoing assessment and improvement of clinical care
  • Setting priorities to improve existing processes and monitoring outcomes using data derived from a variety of sources
  • Monitoring compliance with the established standards
  • Overseeing quality improvement initiatives
  • Evaluating and revises systems and processes to enhance achievement of identified outcomes. 

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
