· There arises an urgency to intervene and develop effective measures to curtail the incidence of CLABSIs.

· The use of proper hand hygiene and skin aseptic techniques over the insertion site is necessary for preventing microbial infections

· The nurses need to have the significant knowledge associated with evidence-based practices for the Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), their attitude towards the guidelines and the utilization of the hygienic measures for the Central Venous Catheter (CVC) patients.

b. Theoretical foundations (models and theories to be the foundation for the project)

· The efficacy of training of nurses over the prevention of Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) in neonates and children, through the exploitation of a questionnaire defining their socio-demographic data and their practical skills (Elbilgahy, A. A. et al., 2015).

· Knowledge about evidence practice reveals the discrepancies in the praxis, by the different nursing Pedagogics (Esposito, M. R. et al., 2017).

· Prophylactic measures to eradicate the incidence of CRIs or Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), based on the opinions of the experts as well as the analysis of the research literature (Hentrich, M. et al., 2014)

c. Review of literature topics with a key theme for each one.

d. Prevention of Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infection (CLABSI)

· The efficacy of hygiene maintenance in the preponderance of CLABSIs rates in patients with CVCs, maintenance of patients with CVCs (Elbilgahy, A. A. et al., 2015); The key concepts in the study entail CLABSIs, ICU patients with CVCs, dressings, hygiene hub (Esposito, M. R. et al., 2017); The relevance of various interventions in reducing device-related infections. The key concepts are related to interventions (Hentrich, M. et al., 2014)

Setting

· Adult ICU (Elbilgahy, A. A. et al., 2015).

· The incidence of CRIs in cancer patients at the hospital (Hentrich, M. et al., 2014).

Summary

· Gap/Problem: There is a need to implement evidence-based methods of improving health outcomes and CLABSIs prevention including the nursing education

· Quantitative application: the Quantitative project is to establish a relation between the occurrence of CLABSIs and staff training, reinforcement, and proper hygiene for Central Venous Catheters (CVCs) inserted in the hospital setting.

· Significance: The use of proper hand hygiene and skin aseptic techniques over the insertion site is necessary for preventing microbial infections. Therefore the necessity to maintain insertion site hygiene consistently is determined to be the best practice in preventing infections that can lead to sepsis and septicemia

 

 

Problem Statement 3. Problem Statement:

Though the studies have substantiated the CLABSIs to be a significant health concern as it impedes the recovery of the patients, the degree of efficacy of hygiene of hub, before each access in the prevention of CLABSIs, is not well documented

 

Clinical/ PICOT Questions 4. Clinical/PICOT Questions:

“In Patients > 65 years of age with central line catheters, how does staff training of key personnel and reinforcement of Central line catheter hub hygiene after its insertion, along with the apt cleansing of the insertion site, before every approach compared with other area hospitals, reduce the incidence of CLABSIs (Central Line Associated Blood-stream Infections)?”

P: Patients > 65 years of age with a Central line

I: Staff training and reinforcement of Central Catheter, Hub Hygiene

C: Other area hospitals

O: Reduce probability of CLABSIs

 

Sample 5. Sample (and Location):

a. Location: ICU Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Webster, Texas
