Professional Nursing Framework
To provide excellent, compassionate, and personalized care in a collaborative environment to advance the health of our patients.
To relentlessly pursue quality outcomes through innovation in clinical practice and nursing excellence.
Professional Practice Model
A Professional Practice Model (PPM) is a conceptual framework for nurses and is the driving force of care provided by nurses along with their interdisciplinary partners. The schematic design embodies the values, beliefs, concepts and systems for nursing practice, and it supports and integrates with the mission and vision of nursing. The PPM was developed by the shared governance councils, nursing staff members and nursing leaders. It depicts how nurses practice, collaborate, communicate and develop professionally to provide the highest quality care to patients, family and community.
Memorial Hermann Southeast and Pearland promote Relationship Based Care which improves safety, quality, as well as patient and staff satisfaction. We link these relationships with interconnected circles depicting Self, Interdisciplinary Team and Patient, Family and Community.
Self: Each individual brings knowledge and skill into their role on the healthcare team.
Interdisciplinary Team: Everyone working together to provide the best care possible.
Patient, Family and Community: Provides end-to-end care to advance the health of our patients, families and the community we serve.
The shared governance model provides a framework that ensures shared decision making processes, bi-directional communication, and collaboration among nurses and interdisciplinary partners on strategic issues and improvements in the organization. At the heart of the shared governance model are patients, families and the community we serve.
