    Hi,
    I am mentoring a green belt project that will just start looking at how to decrease our use of sitter/observers.  You mention that you identified or created a set of criteria (or algorithim?) that assists or directs staff to make the right decision.  We are in north central Wisconsin and wondering if we could network with you – care to share?

    Hi Ruth: we would happily create your algorithm if you can share what you are looking for specifically. Can you share with me what so many others are looking for?
    Have have seen any of those Important vs Performance matrixes? Then we have the service quality gap analysis and the of course the Malcolm Balrige National Quality Award. These provides you a very tool for the right decision.
    Best regards,

    Does anyone have any evidence based data on sitters? 
    I know that Vanderbilt has some things you can access online regarding their algorythm. 
    I am in the process of reviewing all I can get my hands on.  If anyone wants to forward me what they have I would be willing to share.

    I have a meeting in 7 minutes and just discovered this line of discussion.  It looks like many of you requested the decision tree and algorhythm for using sitters.  We are looking to create specific criteria for selecting which patients need sitters and also to reduce our sitter use. 
    Can anyone help.  You have my    [email protected] and my fax number is 913-541-5556. 
    Thank you in advance for any info you can share.
