Dq62 response | Nursing homework help
Thank you for sharing your perspective and proposed solution to the problem of central line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI). Your emphasis on nursing and patient education as a key solution is well-supported by the literature.
Atilla et al. (2016) highlight the importance of care bundles in preventing CLABSIs, with nursing playing a critical role in implementing these bundles. The authors also note that improving nursing education and training can significantly reduce the incidence of CLABSIs.
Similarly, Patel et al. (2019) describe a tiered approach to preventing CLABSIs, with the first tier being education and empowerment of patients and their families. The authors suggest that nurses can play a key role in providing patient education, as they are often the primary point of contact with patients and have the opportunity to provide individualized education.
Overall, your proposed solution of emphasizing nursing and patient education is supported by the literature and has the potential to make a significant impact on reducing the incidence of CLABSIs in the ICU setting. Thank you for sharing your insights on this important issue.
