INTERVENTIONThe impacts of unequal nurse-to-patient staffing ratios on health care qualityare the focus of the capstone reform proposal.If patients are not properly cared for, they may be exposed to a variety ofsafety hazards.These issues include falls, hospital-acquired infections caused by healthcarestaff' inadequate hand cleanliness, drug administration mistakes, a lack ofpatient health education, and a failure to address patients' spiritual needs ashighlighted by Glette et al. (2018).
CONT...Presenting the facility's safety issues to the management team in order forthem to recruit additional nurses to provide proper care to the patients is oneof the interventions.Another crucial intervention is in-service training for nurses on catheterassociated infections, correct handling of catheter precautions, and propermanagement of patients who are at risk of catheter associated infections(Dutra et al., 2018).Hand cleanliness is an intervention that can help avoid hospital-acquiredillnesses, and nurses should make it a habit.Patients may develop difficulties or die as a result of medication mistakes.Before administering prescriptions, nurses should thoroughly inspect themedications and identify the patients.
CONT...Nursing leaders, managers, politicians, and other health care professionalsshould be considered as stakeholders to increase the number of nurses andimprove patient outcomes. As a result, the major purpose of this changeproposal will be accomplished.The best evidence-based practice measures for expanding nursing staff toenhance patient outcomes will be developed.Nurses can be rewarded for actions that keep them focused on patient safetyand help them stay on the job longer Seyhan & Özbaş (2018).
EVIDENCE BASED LITERATUREThe articles evaluated include a variety of study goals and topics, but they are allfocused on the effects of nurse-to-patient ratios on patient outcomes to reducecatheter-associated infections.These publications' study issues catheter associated infections into three categories:definition of nurse staffing, consequences of nursing-to-patient ratio on patientoutcomes, and nursing traits that impede care delivery.The word nurse staffing is defined in the study by Neves et al. (2020) in terms of thenursing care demands of the patients.Nurses play a critical role in providing high-quality treatment in acute care units, andtheir staffing levels have an influence on patient outcomes.
