Running head: EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROPOSAL 1 Evidence-Based Practice Proposal Final Paper Student’s Name Institution Affiliation Date
EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROPOSAL 2 Abstract Sepsis is a medical emergency. If not treated immediately a patient may quickly progress to severe sepsis, septic shock and eventually death. The early recognition of severe sepsis presentation project is an evidence-based project for the medical-surgical floor to decrease the amount of time from early signs of sepsis to treatment of sepsis. The project focuses on improving severe sepsis early recognition on the medical surgical floor. The project aim is to get 50 percent or more monthly adherence to early identification or recognition of sepsis on the medical surgical floor. Compliance will entail getting blood cultures, treatment with fluids and broad spectrum antibiotics where needed in 3 hours of sepsis presentation. It will be followed by improving nursing participation, offering EBP training to improve critical thinking concerning sepsis and also raise increase staff education concerning sepsis. In the end, it will create an environment of change on care departments where treatment of sepsis is involved. Keywords ; Sepsis, Sepsis Protocol, Medical-Surgical, MSU
EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROPOSAL 3 Part A: Population Health Research and PICOT Statement The condition to focus on is sepsis. It also referred to as blood poisoning and it is a deadly health condition. It is a serious and sometimes fatal illness that affects millions of people all over the world despite the developments in technology and medicine the disease outcomes still is termed as poor. Patient outcomes depends on both controlling the response of the body to reduce tissue damage, and target treatment concerning the infection process. More than 8 million die from sepsis annually and therefore sepsis is an epidemic that need attention like any other condition (Arefian et al., 2017). This assignment therefore analyzes sepsis in a selected population. Background Sepsis is generally diagnosed once a client presents to the Emergency Department (ED). The employees in the ED are well trained to identify sepsis process and start treatment as early as possible (D’Amore et al., 2015). They understand that early identification of the disease and treatment can save lives and when sepsis is not recognized it becomes a life threatening condition. Sepsis require instant treatment to prevent the occurrence of tissue damage, and organ failure may also occur which may lead to death. Most sepsis clients have infection before they are admitted to thee care facility which has already grown to sepsis for it was not treated appropriately. The issue is that not every nursing employee can identify sepsis process or they do not have the nurse guided process to start treatment early enough.
