Background and Purpose: Measuring the attitude of nurses toward the importance of involving families in nursing care is essential to implement family-centered care. We aim to examine the reliability and factor structure of the Families' Importance in Nursing Care-Nurses' Attitudes questionnaire (FINC-NA-R). Methods: The psychometric properties of t...

Aims: In hospital settings, decisions about potentially life-prolonging treatments are often made in a dialogue between a patient and their physician, with a focus on active treatment. Nurses can have a valuable contribution in this process, but it seems they are not always involved. Our aim was to explore how hospital nurses perceive their curren...

STRUCTURED Summary Background Infection control practitioners face several challenges when implementing infection control link nurse (ICLN) programs. Identification of strategies to address these can improve the impact of current ICLN programs and guide their future implementation. Aim We aimed to identify implementation strategies for ICLN progr...
Article

Background Infection control link nurses (ICLN) disseminate knowledge on infection prevention topics to their peers. Little is known about how they succeed and thereby contribute to infection prevention in daily practise. Aim To explore the experiences of infection control link nurses regarding their role in acute care hospitals and identify perce...

Objective To explore whether nurses in hospital settings experience moral distress when involved in potentially life-prolonging treatments in adults with a short life expectancy. Methods A qualitative study using semi-structured interviews. Results 23 registered nurses working in inpatient or outpatient hospital settings participated. The nurses...

Background Patient information provision about isolation measures is often not standardised. Moreover, it is unclear what information patients and informal caregivers need to optimize their knowledge and actual experience of contact isolation. We explored opportunities for improving the experience of patients in contact isolation from a human-centr...

Aims To examine hospital nurses’ perception of their actual and potential contribution to shared decision‐making about life‐prolonging treatment and their perception of the pre‐conditions for such a contribution. Design A qualitative interview study. Methods Semi‐structured face‐to‐face interviews were conducted with 18 hospital nurses who were i...

Background The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic influenced family-centred care dramatically due to restricting visiting policies. In this new situation, nurses were challenged to develop new approaches to involve family members in patient care. A better understanding of these changes and the experiences of nurses is essential to make an adaptation...

Objective: Patients with advanced diseases and frail older adults often face decisions regarding life-prolonging treatment. Our aim was to provide an overview of the feasibility and effectiveness of tools that support communication between healthcare professionals and patients regarding decisions on life-prolonging treatments in hospital settings....

Objective: Opioids are increasingly prescribed and frequently involved in adverse drug events (ADEs). The underlying nature of opioid-related ADEs (ORADEs) is however understudied. This hampers our understanding of risks related to opioid use during hospitalisation and when designing interventions. Therefore, we provided a description of the natur...

Background Reusing routinely recorded data from electronic hospital records (EHR) may offer a less-time consuming, and more real time alternative for monitoring compliance by nurses with a protocol for the safe preparation and administration of injectable medication. However, at present it is unknown if the data necessary to calculate the quality i...

Background: Infection control link nurse programs show considerable variation. We report how Dutch link nurse programs are organized, how they progress, and how contextual factors may play a role in the execution of these programs. Methods: This mixed-methods study combined a survey and semi-structured interviews with infection control practitio...
Article
Objectives It is unclear how nurses adjust the double check during injectable medication administration and guarantee patient safety. We used the Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) to determine the fit between the double check according to the protocol (work-as-imagined) and clinical practice (work-as-done). We aimed to learn about process...

Aims The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and cause of interruptions during intravenous medication administration, which factors are associated with interruptions and to what extent interruptions influence protocol compliance. Background Hospital nurses are frequently interrupted during medication administration, which contributes...

Background Involving link nurses in infection prevention and control is a strategy to improve clinical practice that has been implemented in hospitals worldwide. However, little is known about the use, the range and benefits of this strategy. We aimed to identify key concepts of infection control link nurses (ICLN) and ICLN programs, to evaluate th...
Article
Objectives: To explore how nurses perceive their self-efficacy and performance in supporting self-management among patients with incurable cancer, and whether these perceptions differ between community and hospital nurses. Sample & Setting: 222 hospital nurses (n = 94) and community nurses (n = 128) working with adult patients with incurable cance...

Op de afdeling gastro-intestinale chirurgie krijgen patiënten die een infuus hebben met een lage flow (minder dan 3 ml per uur) een extra flow met NaCl 0,9%. Dit zijn meestal patiënten met een perifeer infuus (spuitenpomp) met een van de volgende medicijnen: morfine, ketamine, kalium, fosfaat, insuline (Novorapid®), pantoprazol, Floxapen® of octreo...

Objectives Medication administration errors with injectable medication have a high risk of causing patient harm. To reduce this risk, all Dutch hospitals implemented a protocol for safe injectable medication administration. Nurse compliance with this protocol was evaluated as low as 19% in 2012. The aim of this second evaluation study was to determ...
Article
Caregivers often consult community mental health (CMH) nurses when they recognize prodromes of mania in the outpatient. The purpose of this study was to determine nurses' experiences of their therapeutic relationship and nursing interventions to outpatients and caregivers during different stages of mania. A qualitative study was conducted. Nine nur...
Article
Colonization of the respiratory tract with Gram-negative bacteria in intensive care patients increases the risk of subsequent infections. Application of systemic antibiotics may prevent colonization with Gram-negative bacteria, but this effect has never been quantified. The objective of this study was to determine associations between systemic anti...

Purpose: To determine to what extent intensive care unit environment affects family and patient satisfaction. Methods: A before-after study was performed in one university hospital in The Netherlands, 2 months before and 2 months after the migration of an intensive care unit (ICU) with multiple beds on a ward to a newly built ICU with all single...
Article
Purpose: It is widely assumed that closed suction systems (CSSs), as compared with open suction systems (OSSs), better guarantee optimal oxygenation with less disturbance of physiologic parameters in mechanically ventilated intensive care patients. We, therefore, quantified changes in heart rate (HR), mean arterial pressure (MAP), and peripheral o...

We quantified the association between antibiotic exposure and acquisition of antibiotic resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterobacter species in intensive care unit patients. Prospective cohort study. In 1,201 patients, respiratory tract colonization was determined through regular screening on admission, twice weekly, and on discharge. Prim...
Article
Cross-transmission of Gram-negative bacteria increases the likelihood of acquisition of infections and emergence of antibiotic resistance in intensive care units. Respiratory tracts of mechanically ventilated patients are frequently colonized with Gram-negative bacteria and endotracheal suctioning may facilitate cross-transmission. It is unknown wh...

Background The majority of patients admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICUs) require an artificial airway and mechanical ventilation (MV). An important aspect of airway management in these patients is to remove secretions by endotracheal suctioning. Multiple use closed suction systems (CSS) are increasingly replacing single-use open suction system (...
