When an ostomy care nurse is not available, bedside nurses must assume responsibility for providing necessary care and educating patients who undergo a urinary diversion. However, staff nurses often lack the necessary knowledge and experience to provide the best care, rehabilitation, and patient education. This article details pre- and postoperative interventions for nurses who encounter patients undergoing urostomy surgery in order to help eliminate gaps in care, increase nurses' and patients' competence and confidence, and optimize patient outcomes and quality of life...

BACKGROUND: During the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses have faced innumerable challenges, which have contributed to staggering increases in burnout rates. In the health care arena, burnout has been associated with the onset or exacerbation of physical illness, neglect of self-care, fatigue, decreased patient satisfaction, higher medication error rates, lack of nurse engagement, and increased nurse turnover. PURPOSE: This cross-sectional study sought to determine whether a correlation exists between self-reported physical activity and nurses' perception of burnout in a sample of hospital RNs...

This article introduces the Mountain Model, the first conceptual model for evidence-based practice quality improvement (EBPQI) initiatives. The Mountain Model merges modern evidence-based practice (EBP) and quality improvement (QI) paradigm principles into a unified conceptual framework with the goal of disseminating and sustaining EBPQI projects across health care and related settings. The model was developed within the nursing discipline, but is designed for transdisciplinary implementation through interprofessional teams...

BACKGROUND: Duty to care is both an integral concept in health care and a fundamental nursing obligation. But nurses' perceptions of duty to care can be moderated by their experiences in the practice setting. Research examining nurses' perceptions of their duty to care during the COVID-19 pandemic could shed light on how the pandemic is affecting the nursing workforce. PURPOSE: This study aimed to examine nurses' sense of duty to care during the early months of the pandemic, using the Nash Duty to Care Scale (NDCS), and to compare the high-scoring nurses with the low-scoring nurses...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: Achieving efficient throughput of patients is a challenge faced by many hospital systems. Factors that can impede efficient throughput include increased ED use, high surgical volumes, lack of available beds, and the complexities of coordinating multiple patient transfers in response to changing care needs. Traditionally, many hospital inpatient units operate via a fixed acuity model, relying on multiple intrahospital transfers to move patients along the care continuum. In contrast, the acuity-adaptable model allows care to occur in the same room despite fluctuations in clinical condition, removing the need for transfer...

This article is one in a series from Press Ganey-a health care performance improvement organization-that will discuss the many facets of the human experience in health care. Using the latest national data, the series will explore the intersections of safety, reliability, experience, and service, and their impact on engagement, work culture, and nurse-sensitive outcomes. Each installment will be designed as a "deep dive" into the most recent thinking and evidence-based approaches to improvement of the patient experience with a particular focus on practical and implementable tactics in each of the above subject areas...

As advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) enter practice, support is crucial for success. Formal mentorship has been shown to improve employee turnover, job satisfaction, and clinical competence. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, an APRN team specializing in palliative care experienced an unprecedented rate of staff turnover. As a result, the team decided to create a formal mentorship program to support newly hired colleagues and assist their transition to practice. A subcommittee of APRNs within the palliative care practice met to establish a mentorship practice framework, expectations for the program, and a methodology for matching mentors and mentees...

BACKGROUND: Unfractionated heparin (UFH) is a high-risk medication that can cause bleeding and/or thrombotic complications if not managed appropriately. Between January and July 2019, our institution experienced a high number of patient safety events related to UFH infusion for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). PURPOSE: The aim of this quality improvement (QI) initiative was to prevent these safety events by improving compliance with our institution's nurse-driven VTE UFH infusion protocol...
