demonstrated a zero rate of CAUTIs and a reduction in urinary catheter usage in other healthcare facilities. This device allows for early removal of urinary catheters in patients where a catheter was formally deemed necessary. 9. Identification of potential barriers to plan implementation, and a discussion of how these could be overcome Implementing a project is one of the difficult things to do. This is beacause humans are very dynamic and can change at anytime. That being said, once a project is implemented and accepted, it is put into practice. However, there are times that these changes fail to continue to make progress. This can be as a result of many factors. My EBP project which is focused on encouraging Triage nurses to triage patients in timely manner in the ED to provide the best of care to patients and increase patients satisfaction of care has been embrace by most of the nurses on the floor as well as the ED. The nurses, managers and other health care professionals are happy to increase patients satisfaction of care provided. Some of the barriers to the success of this EBP is the availability of staffs. Shortage of nurses in the hospitals have been a problem for many years. Effective triaging patients on a timely manner would depend on availability of nurses. One of the ways this barrier can be over-come is to motivate nurses and not to overload them with too many extra responsibilities that are not necessary. Little incentives and recognitions are well apprciated by nurses and that gives them joy for what they do.

Retaining nurses on the job is very challenging but very little things makes a diffence. Another barrier to the success of my EBP project would be lack of effective communication. On many occassions, triage nurses together with physicians would triage a patient and would ask for bed to be assigned but takes forever for the admission team to communicate to the appropriate floor to assign a bed. As much as time is needed for a bed to be assigned, communication between the admitting unit and the bedboard (unit that assisgn beds) is not promptly followed up. There have been cases where patients are drop on the unit without nurses knowing that patients have been assigned to those rooms. I belief if education on effective communication is needed to keep everyone on the same page when assigning patients to uints/the floor. 10. Appendix section, if tables, graphs, surveys, educational materials, etc. are created Review the feedback from your instructor on the Topic 3 assignment, PICOT Statement Paper, and Topic 6 assignment, Literature Review. Use the feedback to make appropriate revisions to the portfolio components before submitting. Employee awareness and attitude are two potential barriers that may prevent my evidence-based practice (EBP) change proposal from continuing to obtain the same desired results 6 months to a year from now. According to Hanrahan et al. (n.d.), sacred cows are an old habit in practice
