Implementation Of A Critical Incident Stress Management Program For Nurse Anesthetists., Peter C. Slivinski, Joanne V. Hickey Dr. 2019 University of Texas Health Science Center School of Nursing

Implementation Of A Critical Incident Stress Management Program For Nurse Anesthetists., Peter C. Slivinski, Joanne V. Hickey Dr.

Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety

BACKGROUND: Healthcare is a stressful profession where in addition to routine stressors, there are critical incident (CI) events which are occurrences capable of overwhelming an individual’s normal coping mechanisms. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to improve the process by which certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) exposed to critical incident events are provided post-critical incident support thus mitigating the potential for CI stress

METHODS: We created a CI stress management pilot program for nurse anesthetists employed by an academic hospital located in the Southeastern United States. The program was based upon concepts introduced by Medically Induced Trauma ...

What You Need To Know About Bar-Code Medication Administration, Marie E. McBee 2019 UTHSC-Houston

What You Need To Know About Bar-Code Medication Administration, Marie E. Mcbee

Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety

Medication errors are the most common type of preventable error. Bar-code medication administration (BCMA) technology was designed to reduce medication administration errors. Poor system design, implementation and workarounds remain a cause of errors. This paper reviews the literature on BCMA, identifies a gap in the findings and identifies three evidence based practices that could be used to improve system implementation and reduce error. The literature review identified that Bar-code medication administration and system workarounds are well documented and affect patient safety. Based on the critical analysis of 10 studies, we identified gaps in the standardization of BCMA planning, implementation, and ...


Peripheral Intravenous Infiltrates: Engaging Staff To Increase Reporting, Emily Weber, Kimberly Castrillon, Joyce Ramsey-Coleman 2019 HCA Houston Healthcare

Peripheral Intravenous Infiltrates: Engaging Staff To Increase Reporting, Emily Weber, Kimberly Castrillon, Joyce Ramsey-Coleman

Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety

A large free standing children’s academic hospital aimed to improve patient safety and outcomes by decreasing the overall severity of peripheral intravenous infiltration and extravasations (PIVIEs). A care bundle was developed by creating a PIVIE measurement tool within the electronic medical record (EMR) and integrating the tool into standardized daily practice for nurses. The care bundle included creating a team of clinical leaders consisting of empowered bedside nurses acting as mobilized resources embedded into each unit. The initiative resulted in a large scale increase in reported PIVIEs system-wide within 1 month of education dissemination to bedside RN staff. The ...

Improving Nurse Anesthetist Intraoperative Handoff Process By Developing And Implementing An Evidence-Based, Facility-Specific Cognitive Aid, Jason Silva, Myron Arnaud 2019 The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Improving Nurse Anesthetist Intraoperative Handoff Process By Developing And Implementing An Evidence-Based, Facility-Specific Cognitive Aid, Jason Silva, Myron Arnaud

Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety

Miscommunication or non-transfer of pertinent patient information during intraoperative handoffs between anesthesia providers creates patient safety risks. An evidence-based facility-specific cognitive aid was developed and introduced to nurse anesthetists in an anesthesiology department of a large academic hospital with the aim of improving the intraoperative patient handoff process. The program used a handoff cognitive aid that addressed five pertinent patient information points. A secondary measure was evaluation of provider satisfaction. Twenty-four nurse anesthetists utilized the handoff cognitive aid during handoffs in the course of a 4-week pilot program. Eighty-eight nurse anesthetist handoffs were observed (23 with and 65 without the ...


Public Health Policy: An Ethical Analysis Of Quarantine, Dina Alqahtani 2019 Duquesne University

Public Health Policy: An Ethical Analysis Of Quarantine, Dina Alqahtani

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

As a public health measure quarantine has both historical and contemporary significance both in the United States and abroad. On the surface it represents a low-cost, low-tech way in which the spread of disease can be mitigated as its core requirement is that those who may have been exposed to an infectious agent are kept away from those who have not been exposed to that agent for enough time to determine whether or not infection has been spread. This has been utilized for centuries with both limited questions and scattered, inconsistent, or impossible to achieve oversight and goals. In understanding ...


Identifying High Risk Patients For Hospital Readmission, Ethan Graham, Asha Saxena, Heather Kirby 2019 Southern Methodist University

Identifying High Risk Patients For Hospital Readmission, Ethan Graham, Asha Saxena, Heather Kirby

SMU Data Science Review

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), passed in 2010, set forth a framework for healthcare providers to have a vested interest in better patient outcomes and to reduce the Total Cost of Care (TCOC) for patients. A large portion of TCOC comes from patients who make multiple unscheduled hospital visits for the same underlying pathology: a hospital readmission. In this paper, we tackle the difficulty of identifying risk markers for diabetes patients’ hospital readmission. Using data from the Health Facts Database, we use logistic regression and support vector machines to identify the risk that a diabetes patient has of a hospital ...

Utilization Of Acupuncture Services In The Emergency Department Setting: A Quality Improvement Study, John R. Burns, Jessica J. F. Kram, Vashir Xiong, Jeanne M. Stark Casadont, Tiffany A. Mullen, Nancy Conway, Dennis J. Baumgardner

Jessica Kram, MPH

Purpose: Patients often present to the emergency department (ED) for pain. As opioid fatalities rise, alternative treatments are warranted for pain management. Acupuncture, a nonpharmacological treatment involving the insertion of needles into skin or tissue at specific points within the body, may help to decrease acute pain. Our study aimed to assess the utilization and impact of acupuncture in the ED for acute pain management.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of purposefully collected quality improvement data. Patients who were ≥18 years old and who presented to the ED at an urban medical center in Wisconsin during 2017 were offered ...

Elevation Complications: Implications For Mental Health, Amelia Schuver, Scott Sponholz, Mary Van Dyke

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

Suicide is a painful and shocking reality of global society today. It is a leading cause of death among the global population and according to the World Health Organization, about 800,000 people die by suicide each year (World Health Organization, 2016). Many variables influence suicide rates such as low population density, history of alcohol/substance abuse, access to lethal methods, social isolation, and the presence of a stigma attached to mental illness (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018). Another emerging factor that is being associated with increased suicide rates is living at higher elevations (>6500 feet). In the ...
