Magnet Standards

Magnet standards must be at the foundation of patient care with every member of the patient care team. At a Magnet-designated facility, nurses put into action caring factors such as:

  • Mutual Problem-solving
  • Attentive Reassurance
  • Human Respect
  • Encouraging Manner
  • Appreciation of Unique Meanings
  • Healing Environment
  • Affiliation Needs
  • Basic Human Needs

At Lowell General Hospital you will see nurses and clinical teams who are focused on caring, quality, teamwork and innovation. Through these efforts, patients and their families find their care team is able to spend more time at the bedside, providing compassionate, expert care. Independent research defines benefits that are associated with a Magnet designation including better clinical outcomes, quicker recovery, and excellent care that centers around patient needs. A Magnet facility has higher patient satisfaction scores, higher job satisfaction among nurses and the ability to attract and retain quality nursing staff.
