While on the hunt for good sources for this story, one of my favorite people to talk with was Rhonda Scott, R.N., Ph.D., chief nursing officer (CNO) at the Atlanta-based, 953-bed Grady Memorial Hospital. Dr. Scott serves as the patient satisfaction initiative champion at Grady, which actually expects to lose a significant amount of money to poor scores.

Grady has gone into overdrive in trying to improve the patient experience and turn those scores around. For instance, leaders at the hospital have invested in more channels on the TV, better food options, and more private, high-tech friendly rooms. However, above all else, the hospital has focused on improving communication, specifically through its nurses.
Nurses, Scott and others say, are the ones who are in contact with the patient the most. "Nursing care is the only reason they're in the hospital. If it can be done in an outpatient center or a physician's office, it would be done," she says. There's a reason a nurse like Scott is heading up this initiative.
