Q&A: Intervention Points

Welcome back to The Magnet® Corner. NCP Consultants frequently address lots of questions regarding specific Magnet® requirements and guidelines. The most frequently asked questions will be addressed here.

QUESTION 1:
How many post intervention data points do I need to provide in our Magnet® EO documentation under the 2014 Magnet Manual®?

ANSWER:
Post intervention data must be trended with minimum of three data points.

It is important to clearly label your pre-implementation date, followed by the intervention date and provide at least THREE data points post intervention.

NCP recommends that you use our EO checklist as you create your document:
