Waste Not - Want Not: A LEAN Approach for Reducing Bedside Waste Public

Nurse Manager oversight for a high quality, safe patient care unit includes responsibility for ensuring infrastructure efficiency and allocating resources appropriately. These accountabilities are unwavering even as organizations face increasing financial pressures. To this end, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) leadership team and clinical nurses sought to reduce system waste by redesigning the unit’s acquisition, distribution, and storage of supplies. A shared governance approach engaged unit council members and leadership in a mutually agreeable cost reduction initiative.
