Frontline nurses encounter operational failures and system problems that impede care, erode quality, and threaten patient safety. Nurse detection of operational failures, or breakdowns in critical system processes, could provide organizations with rich information about areas of a system in need of improvement. As a high reliability organization (HRO) strategy, frontline detection of operational failures can be the first step in raising awareness, catalyzing appropriate systems-based solutions, fostering learning organization climates, decreasing dangerous workarounds, and making improvements. To better understand frontline nurses’ experiences with operational failures in hospitals, we conducted a national multi-site study to describe the rate and categories of nurse-detected operational failures occurring during direct patient care. Data were collected from 774 nurses working in 67 adult and pediatric medical-surgical units in 23 hospitals. Nurses systematically recorded data on operational failures encountered during ten work shifts over a 20-shift span of time. In total, nurses reported on 27,298 operational failures over 4,512 shifts reflecting a rate of 6.05 failures per shift; the highest rate of failures occurred in the category of “equipment and supplies.” Qualitative feedback from site PIs reflected HRO themes including a sense Operational Failures Detected by Frontline Acute Care Nurses of engagement in improving their work system, having their voices heard, and heightened awareness of system support. Given the scale of this study, frontline nurse detection of operational failures in hospitals appears to be a viable method for organizations to obtain critical information to inform and prioritize quality improvement efforts.
