Abstract

Nicklaus Children's Hospital, part of Miami Children's Health System, was founded in 1950 as South Florida's only licensed specialty hospital exclusively for children. Since its inception, Nicklaus Children's Hospital has upheld its mission to safeguard hospitalized children by keeping them safe from harm. The organization has gained international attention for its seminal work in preventing falls in the pediatric population. The nurses at Nicklaus Children's Hospital have long been empowered at the forefront of care. As a result, through integration of the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet® Model and exemplary professional practice, these nurses and interprofessional teams came together to build a program instrumental in promoting the safety and well-being of children.
