Health care organizations are continuously immersed in change from the emergence of new policies, to promote quality care and improve patient safety to keeping pace with the rapid growth in knowledge and best practices. Establishing a solid framework for planning and implementing change is a wise move, as it provides a foundation for the extensive coordination that will be needed to successfully facilitate the change.
For this Assignment, you propose a change at the department or unit level and develop a plan for guiding the change effort.
- Review Chapter 8 in the course text. Focus on Kurt Lewin's change theory, and contrast it with other
classic change models and strategies.

your organization or one with which you are familiar. Select one issue as a focal point for this
assignment, and consider a change that could be made to address the issue.
- Think about how the change would align with the organization's mission, vision, and values as well as
relevant professional standards.
- Using one of the change models or strategies discussed in Chapter 8, begin formulating a plan for
implementing the change within the department/unit. Outline the steps that you and/or others should
follow to facilitate the change effort. Align these steps to the change model or strategy you selected.

characteristics that are necessary to facilitate this change effort.

Adjusting the bedside or patient monitor alarms is necessary as there are cases where there are medical devices alerts that are unnecessary or sometimes false in situations that do not require monitoring. Reducing unnecessary alarms should not be ignored as this reduces the likelihood of alarm fatigue and makes it easier to translate knowledge of alarm-related problems (Sendelbach & Funk, 2013). Alarm fatigue represents cases of sensory overload because of the high number of false or non-actionable alarm signals that can affect any of the hospitals with hospitalized patients (Sendelbach & Funk, 2013). Reducing and eliminating alarm fatigue will improve the quality of health care services and nurses will be better placed to meet patient needs. Adjusting monitor alarms is proposed as a viable change policy that improves health outcomes and reduces alarm fatigue.
The specific and realistic change
The practice change focuses on adjusting alarm settings depending on the patients
