BACKGROUND: The essential components of an effective neuroscience nurse orientation program for those caring for the adult general care population have not been well defined or standardized. METHODS: Using a 2-round, modified Delphi methodology, electronic surveys were distributed to 53 experts in neuroscience nursing orientation to gain consensus on the essential components of orientation for the neuroscience nurse. Survey data included demographics of the expert, literature-based components of neuroscience nurse orientation, and an opportunity to agree/disagree or write in additional components...

BACKGROUND: Most critical thinking assessment tools are resource intensive and require significant time and money to administer. Moreover, these tools are not tailored to evaluate critical thinking skills among inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) nurses. This pilot study explores the efficacy of using short videos to evaluate critical thinking for nurses working in an IRF. METHODS: We developed and filmed 3 clinical scenarios representative of common IRF events that require critical thinking on behalf of the nurse...

BACKGROUND: Staffing models within nursing units have long been a hot topic of discussion. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated this discussion by straining the national nursing environment and workforce. Before the pandemic, the neuroscience intensive care unit (NSICU) primarily used an acuity-adjusted staffing model and aimed for a nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:1.5. During and after the pandemic, the NSICU was forced to primarily use a centralized staffing model because of the increased turnover in the hospital at large and a rise in patient census...

BACKGROUND: Sports- and recreation-related concussions impact the cognitive function of secondary school students during the recovery process. They can cause symptoms such as headache, difficulty concentrating, and memory impairment, which pose a challenge for students during the return to learn (RTL) after injury. Concussion management teams (CMTs) assist the student in managing symptoms and develop an individualized RTL process; however, the ideal composition of professionals involved in the CMT has not been fully evaluated...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Ayşe Çekici, Afife Yurttaş
BACKGROUND: Stroke care partners and caregivers experience emotional and physical burden, and 80% of stroke patients need support after discharge. This study examines the relationship between caregiver preparedness and altruism levels of stroke patients. METHODS: The population of this descriptive and correlational study consisted of the caregivers of stroke patients who were hospitalized at the stroke center of a hospital between January 2021 and August 2021. The sample was determined as 240 with the known sampling formula...

Ranran Ding, Vasiliki Betihavas, Benjamin McElduff, Simeon Dale, Kelly Coughlan, Elizabeth McInnes, Sandy Middleton, Oyebola Fasugba
BACKGROUND: Stroke unit care reduces patient morbidity and mortality. The Quality in Acute Stroke Care Europe Study achieved significant large-scale translation of nurse-initiated protocols to manage Fever, hyperglycemia (Sugar), and Swallowing (FeSS) in 64 hospitals across 17 European countries. However, not all hospitals had stroke units. Our study aimed to compare FeSS protocol adherence in stroke unit versus non-stroke-unit hospitals. METHODS: An observational study using Quality in Acute Stroke Care Europe Study postimplementation data was undertaken...

BACKGROUND: Resilience is the ability of patients to adapt effectively when given a diagnosis of an illness. While awaiting brain tumor surgery, patients often experience uncertainty from brain tumor-related symptoms resulting in inducing depressive symptoms, having physical disability, and reducing quality of life. Resilience studies have been widely conducted in the postoperative phase with a limited knowledge on the preoperative phase. This study aimed to identify predictors of resilience while awaiting brain tumor surgery...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Cole Givens, Emerson B Nairon, Mona Jackson, Ayushi Vashisht, DaiWai M Olson
BACKGROUND: Patients admitted to the neuroscience intensive care unit often experience varying states of confusion and restlessness. The purpose of this study was to examine restlessness in acutely confused patients through use of familiar photographs. METHODS : This randomized prospective pilot study placed family photographs (photos) on the bedrail of confused patients during the night shift (8 pm to 4 am ) in a neuroscience intensive care unit. Wrist actigraphy was used to examine restlessness when patients were turned to face the photos versus when they were not facing the photos...

PURPOSE: This study evaluates the impact of pain belief on postoperative pain and analgesic consumption in patients undergoing spine surgery. METHODS: This descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted on 71 patients undergoing spine surgery, who were admitted to the neurosurgery department of a university hospital between January 2021 and April 2022. Descriptive information form, Pain Beliefs Questionnaire, visual analog scale, pain evaluation form, and verbal category scale were used for data collection...

BACKGROUND: The epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) is a clinical setting designed to help diagnose and analyze the nature behind a patient's seizures in a hospitalized unit. Patients admitted to an EMU may experience sleep deprivation, withdrawal of antiepileptic medications, and the use of a continuous electroencephalogram. The purpose of this study was to explore change in patient comfort during an EMU admission. METHODS: The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Comfort Questionnaire (EMUCQ) was used to evaluate the initial stress level of EMU patients on their date of admission versus their fourth day on the unit...

BACKGROUND: Constipation in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) adversely affects motor symptoms, making defecation management critical. Sleep disturbance is another common complaint in patients with PD (PWP). Associations between sleep disturbances and constipation have been reported in recent studies on PD. If improving sleep quality is useful for managing constipation in PWP, it might serve as a new method of constipation management that is less physically and mentally distressing than laxatives. This study aimed to examine the relationship between sleep quality and constipation severity in PWP...

BACKGROUND: Stroke is a medical emergency requiring timely intervention to optimize patient outcomes. The only treatments currently Food and Drug Administration approved for acute stroke are intravenous (IV) thrombolytics, which require obtaining specific medical history to be administered safely. This medical history may be overlooked in the prehospital setting or lost during patient handoff between emergency medical services (EMS) personnel and hospital staff, delaying treatment. We evaluated whether utilization of a "stroke alert sticker" by EMS to capture key information in the field would decrease door-to-needle (DTN) time...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Katie Broadway, Cristina M Nuila
BACKGROUND: Emerging research suggests the need for implementation of mobility protocols and consistent evaluation of the impact on patient outcomes. Standardized mobility guidelines may be a solution for promoting nurse-driven mobility efforts and influencing a shift in the culture of mobility among nursing teams. In a 36-bed neurosurgical intensive care unit, 2 key areas of opportunity were identified related to patient mobility: strengthening of frontline nursing engagement in mobility and accuracy of documented early and safe mobilization...
