Question

Infection control policies and protocols are implemented in all types

of healthcare facilities. Increased infection rates, especially those from Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDRO), in long-term care facilities can lead to higher mortality and recurring hospitalizations. Increased infection rates have a negative impact on the quality and cost of care (Peterson, Boehm, Beaumont, Patel, Schora, Peterson, & Smith, 2016). It is important for the registered nurse to recognize and utilize evidence-based practices to provide high-quality care and to improve processes where needed. Being an agent for change to improve client outcomes is the responsibility of professional nurses.
Post an example of your experience(s) with MDRO infections, infection control, and isolation practices, evidence-based tools used to prevent skin breakdown and maintain integrity, pressure ulcers, and participation or observance of opportunities for improvement in nursing care.
