Professional Practice Models
The St. Patrick Nursing Professional Practice Model reflects the primary focus and commitment of nurses at St. Patrick Hospital. The model takes the shape of the mountain valley in which we live and work. The river that springs from our work is Professional Excellence, which results in the best care possible for our patients, our community and ourselves.
Care Delivery System
The Nursing Care Delivery System works in tandem with our Professional Practice Model. The patient and family are at the center of our holistic approach to care delivery. The strengths of our own practice circle and support this effort. Our system is based on Jean Watson's Theory of Caring, as well as the Synergy Model of Nursing from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.
