and 1.3, respectively). Interventions was launched at each period to correct deficiencies. Despite having an in-service nursing education, baseline recall to “Scrubbing the Hub” was only 30% for nurses. There was also a remarkable upsurge in understanding from thebaseline in July 2009 to 86% in November 2009 following the educational intervention, but no significant rise noted in technique knowledge between November 2009 and May 2010. Chi-square test revealed no changes with 95% CI (−0.21, 0.08), χ2 = 2.899, and p =.093 (Curlej & Katrancha, 2016). The second study revealed that in the noninterventional group they experienced 8 CLABSIs with an infection rate of 4.18 per 1000 days. The intervention group only experienced 1 CLABSI with an infection rate of 0.47 per 1000 days. A significant decline was observed in the number of infections per 1000-line days in the intervention group. From the study by Scheck McAlearney, Hefner, Robbins, Harrison, & Garman, 2015 it was noted that every hospital had a goal of “getting to zero”infections nonetheless this goal was generally incorporated and belligerently pursued in the higher-performing hospitals when in comparison to the lower-performing hospitals who had more of ambition and has not inculcated the prevention strategies. Including specific management practices/bundles go a long way to providing critical guidance to hospital managers, medical managers, and doctors in precluding healthcare-associated infections. Results uncovered the several challenges regarding when it comes to managing proper technique and preventing central line-associated bloodstream infections.
Final Draft11The ideas, time and locus of responsibility, patient population and unit, and differences inexperience with CLABSIs, are illuminated (Morrison, 2012). These four research articles discovered problems caused by increased CAUTI prevalence, they also discovered a CAUTI preventive bundle which is an evidence-based based practice and its efficacy in improving CAUTIs reduction.The implication of these studies in nursing practice is that by using the targeted interventions and specific management bundles, the rate of central line-associated bloodstream infections can be reduced drastically and thereby improving the overall health outcome of the patients. It isnoted that a PICOT is based on a nursing practice problem because this is the area in which we are focused on. As a nurse we look to help promote health not diagnosis. We are focused on not only the medical condition but also how to care for the patient overall’s health and well-being.Ethical considerationsIn conducting clinical research, the ethical and legal issues relating to this involving human participants have raised so many concerns to policymakers, lawyers, scientists, and clinician for several years.
