In order to address the need for a tool to support hospital-based nurses in catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) prevention, the American Nurses Association (ANA) was asked to convene a Technical Expert Panel of stakeholders in CAUTI prevention. The Technical Expert Panel was chaired by the ANA's Senior Policy Fellow, a certified wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurse. The panel comprised 23 representatives, including nurses from specialty practice organizations, nursing affiliated with the ANA, infection control specialists, patient safety authorities, award-winning hospitals using the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators, and content experts...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of a low-profile alternating pressure (AP) overlay system on hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs). DESIGN: Prospective case series with historical controls. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The study setting was the operating room and critical care unit of an urban quaternary care hospital in the Midwestern United States.

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue injuries recognized at birth are a common occurrence and well described in the medical literature. Despite this, there has been no discussion of congenital pressure injuries. In this Clinical Challenges article, I describe 3 cases in which congenital skin injuries have occurred, all of which meet the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel definition for a pressure injury and are demonstrably not the result of other etiologies. CASES: Over a 6-month period, in a 44-bed level III-IV neonatal intensive care unit, 3 patients were identified and diagnosed with congenital pressure injuries...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine from what sources women with urinary and dual urinary and fecal incontinence sought and received information about incontinence and absorbent products. We also evaluated source utility. DESIGN: Descriptive, embedded, mixed-methods study with qualitative interviews nested into a survey design in a modified explanatory sequence. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The target population was community-dwelling women in Canada who used containment products to manage urinary incontinence...

BACKGROUND: Selective use of pressure-redistributing support surfaces is considered an essential component of a pressure injury prevention bundle. Critically ill children who are too big for an isolette but too little for a bed are usually placed in critical care cribs that have unique features such as moveable side rails and a built-in scale for weighing the patient, but they do not have a mattress designed to redistribute pressure. The primary aim of this quality improvement project was to evaluate a pressure redistribution mattress designed for use in critical care cribs...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to examine the long-term effects of a urinary incontinence (UI) self-management program for older women on the severity, knowledge, and attitudes regarding UI. DESIGN: This was a quasi-experimental design (nonrandomized trial) with intervention and comparison groups. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Participants were recruited from a primary health care facility in rural Korea. Forty-four older women with UI were assigned to either the intervention or the control group...

Moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) is characterized by inflammation of the skin with or without erosion of the skin caused by prolonged exposure to various sources of moisture including urine or stool, perspiration, wound exudate, or mucus. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to determine the prevalence of MASD at a teaching hospital in the Midwestern United States. Data were collected quarterly over a period of 12 months concurrently with the quarterly Pressure Ulcer Prevalence Survey (PUPS)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity and reliability of the Italian version of the Ostomy Adjustment Inventory-23 (OAI-23). DESIGN: This is a methodological study evaluated psychometric properties of the OAI-23. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: A sample of 230 patients with an ostomy was enrolled in an Italian university hospital from May to September 2017.

An integrative review was conducted to synthesize evidence on prevention and management of incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) in the pediatric population. A 5-step integrative process was used to guide the review. Articles published from January 2000 to April 6, 2017, were identified and retrieved from CINAHL, PubMed, ProQuest (MEDLINE), and Scopus; key terms were associated with IAD, pediatric, prevention, and management. Supplemental and manual searches were carried out to identify other relevant studies...

DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The sample comprised 50 adult patients from the clinic of the Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran.

Evidence suggests that inaccurate and incomplete pressure injury (PI) documentation threatens the validity of treatment and undermines policy and quality improvement. This quality improvement project sought to identify barriers and facilitators when conducting and documenting the daily comprehensive skin assessment in 31 Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities. Evaluators in this 1-year, cross-sectional quality improvement project, using a qualitative approach, interviewed nurses of medical-surgical and critical care units...
