In response to the merger of our 248-bed community hospital with a new health system, a multidisciplinary team began a journey of holistic transformation via the evolution of a new rounding process called Leadership, Ownership, Transformation, Unity, and Sustainability (LOTUS) in the 20-bed ICU. Morphing from a hierarchical practice structure with limited engagement of multidisciplinary members, the LOTUS initiative (named for the blossom whose petals surround its core, the patient) afforded each discipline (petal) an equal voice and allowed a once-fragmented team to work cohesively, collaboratively, and at the highest level of the scope of practice for each discipline, thus affording expert guidance during care planning while providing a method to collect quality metrics. LOTUS allows us to view our patients in a new way as we refocused goal determination on patients and their families. The restructuring and evolution into a high-functioning team was targeted with the goal of enhancing quality critical care for patients, which, in the literature, has correlated with improved patient safety and decreased mortality and ICU length of stay.
