abstract

  • St. Peter's Hospital used the Mission Statement as a foundation upon which to build a new "Least Restraint Policy." The Mission Statement guided the change process by assisting us to 1) identify the need for change, 2) identify the values and beliefs on which a new policy should be based, 3) identify the need for interdisciplinary planning, and 4) identify the need for staff and family education before implementation of the new policy.
