ROUGH DRAFT QUALITATIVE RESEACH CRITIQUE AND ETHICAL CONSIDERATION 2 Introduction Healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) is involved with the rising morbidity and mortality among hospitalized patients [ CITATION Ili16 \l 1033 ] . It have been estimated that about 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and 99,000 HAI deaths occurs in the Unites States (US) hospitals and outpatient clinics [ CITATION Mau14 \l 1033 ] . HAIs are nosocomial acquired infections that were developed during a patient’s stay in a hospital admission. These type of infections are closely monitored by the center for diseases control (CDC) in effort to prevent the continuous occurrence and improve patients safety during their stay in the hospital [ CITATION Mon18 \l 1033 ] . Studies have shown that infection prevention and control practice is a critical component of everyday practice in healthcare professions to keep both patient and staff safe [ CITATION Sun19 \l 1033 ] . Two qualitative articles about HAI will be summarized and ethical considerations identified. Background of Study A study by Sung Ok, et al. in the year 2019 focused on how infection control education is being carried out in undergraduate nursing program. It is essential that student are capable of practicing their undergraduate knowledge skills to become proficient nurses [ CITATION Sun19 \l 1033 ]. Nowadays, most hospitals utilize the infection control experts to create a culture that promotes patient safety; however, infection control is an important factor in most hospital accreditation so it is paramount that undergraduate nursing curricula include adequate IPC training [ CITATION Sun19 \l 1033 ]. The main purpose of the study is to elucidate how infection prevention and control (IPC) education would be conducted in undergraduate programs.
ROUGH DRAFT QUALITATIVE RESEACH CRITIQUE AND ETHICAL CONSIDERATION 3 On the other hand, a research by Sutton, Brewster, & Tarrant in the year 2019 focused on the fact that infection prevention and control practice should be everyone’s business including the staffs of all roles and grades; as well as the patients and their relatives, and all of whom are seen as stakeholders with a part to play in achieving IPC goals [ CITATION Sut191 \l 1033 ]. However, there is not enough evidence or studies about how staffs feel about involving the patients and their relatives to participate in IPC practices. This study recognizes that both the patient, relatives and the healthcare professionals have an equal part to play in preventing HAI and improving the quality of care provided. The main aim of the study is to understand how
