RESEARCH CRITIQUES AND PICOT STATEMENT FINAL DRAFT2PICOT StatementIn the acute care setting, the issue of central line infections is a primary concern. Being abbreviated as CLABS the infections brings back the progress of the patients due to its effect in increasing the amount of time the patients would stay in the hospitals. This leads to financial burden especially to the poor. BackgroundA Central line is either to be a central venous catheter or peripherally-inserted central catheter. The study will be aimed at focusing on the perfection of the basic outcomes of patients through the use of CLABS. The patients will be able to get central lines whenever they do not have competent veins that would be used for inserting peripheral IVs. Central lines are in sometimes used in administering medicines that cannot be done using the peripheral vein. The reader is supposed to care for this research as it would present ways to avoid the conditions in order to save time and medical costs. Some of the research questions include whether there are solutions for CLABS in patients. The implementations by those hospitals that were successful are incorporated as well as those that failed. The qualitative methods were effectively employed in the research. The interviews that were conducted to different people were great evidence to this issue. The citation was excellentlydone in order to present the source of information that the author used. The comparison of the higher level hospitals that performed with those that did not be exemplary. The time used was also quality in the sense that it gave enough time for evaluation and conclusions. The informationpresented was also able to build an argument that is logical. However, there was no frame work used by the author.
RESEARCH CRITIQUES AND PICOT STATEMENT FINAL DRAFT3The results indicated big differences between the high performing hospitals with the low performers.
