Scenario: Eight Common areas have been identified as sources of non-value-added work and result in wasted time ( Jones, 2014; Storfjell et al., 2009):
Admission, discharge, and transfer activity
Shift report
Supplies/equipment
Pharmaceuticals
Diagnostics
Documentation
Communication
Staffing

Within each of these areas are opportunities to eliminate wasteful work. Examples of wasteful work include inefficient hand-off in which information is incomplete, searching for information or reports, waiting for others to complete their work, fixing equipment, and repeating calls to fill requests. Select two areas from the previous list and brainstorm with a colleague to address the following issues and questions.

Discussion Questions:
1. In examining a recent experience which areas of waste can you identify? How much time is involved?

2. Develop a plan to share this information with members of the team and create a specific plan to decrease the wasted time for this particular event. Be sure to include a specific timeline to complete this work.

3. List the Challenges in gaining in gaining support from the team and in documenting the value of this work to the team and to the patients.

4. Develop a plan to communicate the challenges in addressing basic waste at the point of the patient care and the importance of continuing to address nurse work from a positive perspective.
