AIM: Sepsis is a significant and time-sensitive clinical concern for patients who present to Emergency Departments (EDs). Existing guidelines do not define nurses' roles in managing sepsis. This study explored ED nurses' experiences and perceptions around recognising and responding to patients with sepsis, and their awareness of sepsis screening and prognostic tools. The knowledge and insights gained from this study may be used to inform local and international ED policies, and enrich nursing educational packages that may be used to improve quality of patient care and patient outcomes...

Salicylates are among the oldest and most widely used medication to date and are utilized for a variety of purposes including the management of fever, inflammation, pain, and cardiovascular prophylaxis. Reports from U.S. Poison Control Centers indicate that over 40,000 Americans are exposed to salicylate-containing substances annually, and although generally deemed safe, fatal intoxications can occur from a single ingestion. Although some ingestions are intentional, many are not, and are a result of the prevalence of salicylates in a wide array of prescription and over-the-counter substances...

INTRODUCTION: There are significant and negative psychological effects that can occur in nursing staff caring for pediatric patients experiencing critical incidents. Debriefings can provide relief from the stressors caused by critical incidents. Adapting a pre-existing critical incident stress debriefing (CISD) process to ED staff is 1 way to provide staff debriefing. METHODS: This qualitative study used an emerging, descriptive design. Focus groups, (n = 3, total participant n = 19), consisting of pediatric emergency nurses and a nursing assistant, met for a minimum of 63 to a maximum of 83 minutes...

INTRODUCTION: The emergency department is a fast-paced, high-volume environment, serving patients with diverse and evolving acuities. Personnel providing direct care are continually exposed to pathogenic microorganisms from patients and everyday surfaces, to which the organisms may spread. Indeed, hospital items-such as electronic devices, stethoscopes, and staff clothing-have demonstrated high rates of contamination. Despite this, policies governing the use, disinfection, and wear of various environmental surfaces remain relaxed, vague, and/or difficult to enforce...

BACKGROUND: In the emergency department, it is important to identify and prioritize who requires an urgent intervention in a short time. Triage helps recognize the urgency among patients. An accurate triage decision helps patients receive the emergency service in the most appropriate time. Various triage systems have been developed and verified to assist healthcare providers to make accurate triage decisions. The triage accuracy can represent the quality of emergency service, but there is a lack of review studies addressing this topic...

AIM OF THE STUDY: The role of supraglottic devices in airway management in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of intubation through the Intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway (ILMA) when used by prehospital emergency nurses in the setting of OHCA. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, observational trial during 12 years by the Fire Department and prehospital emergency service of the health district of Strasbourg, France...

INTRODUCTION: Appropriate prehospital (PH) triage of patients with chest pain can significantly improve outcomes in acute myocardial infarction (MI). We sought to explore how PH providers triage chest pain as high versus low risk and to evaluate the accuracy and predictors of their triage decision. METHODS: This was a prospective, observational cohort study that enrolled consecutive patients with chest pain transported by emergency medical services (EMS) to 3 tertiary care hospitals in the US...

INTRODUCTION: Adults with exacerbated heart failure (HF) who present to the emergency department (ED) generally are readmitted. However, Hispanic HF patients are more likely to be admitted than Whites. Studies show the importance of nurse-led interventions in the ED discharge process, but registered nurse (RN) confidence in performing discharge tasks has not been assessed. Greater nurse confidence leads to improved task performance, and potentially reduced HF readmission, lowering cost of care...

INTRODUCTION: Emergency nurses could assume a unique role in the screening process and provide patient education regarding the consequences of harmful alcohol use. Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment is an evidence-based method used to identify drinking behaviors that may have a negative impact on people's lives and reduce abuse or dependence on alcohol. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature was conducted to evaluate both the effectiveness as well as the feasibility of nurse implementation of screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment in the ED setting...

BACKGROUND: ED boarding is a major issue in many hospitals. ED boarding occurs when there is insufficient hospital capacity to supply inpatient beds for admitted patients. ED boarding is not only a problem because of increased wait times for patients but also because it results in delays in administration of medication, higher rates of complications, and increased mortality. METHODS: In an attempt to improve patient flow and reduce time spent in the emergency department for patients requiring admission to the surgical intensive care unit (SICU), the emergency department, trauma service, and SICU collaborated on a guideline...

Education through virtual social networks as a method of distance education can be used due to its accessibility and ease of use. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of education using the virtual social network on the knowledge and attitude of emergency nurses of disaster preparedness...

INTRODUCTION: In Australia, on any given day, there are more than 300 advertised emergency nursing positions, and this situation can be replicated in nearly every country internationally. The nursing shortage globally is known. The importance of not only why nurses specialize in the field of emergency nursing but also why they remain in the field requires an understanding of the evidence and research into nursing recruitment and retention. Leadership within the emergency department has a strong correlation to staff retention...

INTRODUCTION: Injury from firearms is a significant problem in the United States, accounting for 73% of all homicides and 50% of all suicides that occurred among US residents. What is not known are the perceptions of emergency nurses regarding the impact of in-home access on the risk for firearm-related injury and death in their patient populations. The purpose of this study was to explore emergency nurses' perception of patient risk for firearm injury and in which ways that perception affected the process of ED patient screening, assessment, counseling, and discharge education...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: Emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs) working autonomously within minor injury units (MIUs) sometimes have to manage acutely unwell patients who self present. It is likely that whilst emergency departments remain under increasing pressure, this subsection of patients will continue to attend. There is little published research exploring ENPs' experiences during such incidents. This small qualitative study aims to explore emergency nurse practitioners' experiences of managing acutely unwell patients in MIU...

As global leaders, US nurses will have an increasingly recognized role and responsibility in shaping health care in all countries. They should be at the forefront of changing and improving health systems to achieve universal health. Currently, a major health care reform is underway that requires a shift in the professional nursing footprint of China's nurse leaders. These leaders must garner knowledge capital to reinforce ethics, regulations, and standards; use current best practices; implement a comprehensive performance evaluation process; and capture the spirit of caring within their health care environments...
