BACKGROUND: Quality improvement efforts in sepsis management have increased patients' survival rates. Many sepsis survivors experience sequelae leading to unplanned hospital readmissions and subsequent mortality, especially when survivors delay seeking medical attention because they do not recognize the signs and symptoms of recurrent sepsis. Thus, increasing knowledge of sepsis among patients and caregivers before initial hospital discharge is essential. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the understandability and actionability of a printable patient education tool on sepsis...

BACKGROUND: Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a leading birth defect in the United States, affecting about 40 000 neonates each year. Despite efforts to prevent developmental delays, many children with CHD have neurological deficits that last into adulthood, influencing employability, self-care, and quality of life. OBJECTIVE: To determine if neonates with CHD have impaired cerebral autoregulation and poorer neurodevelopmental outcomes compared with healthy controls...

R Scott Kopf, Penni I Watts, Eileen S Meyer, Jacqueline A Moss
BACKGROUND: Nearly one-third of new-graduate nurse practitioners report undergoing no formal orientation process, and postcertification orientation processes vary. A validated curriculum would address the need for structured training to enhance new graduates' practice transition. METHODS: A competency-based practice transition curriculum for intensive care unit nurse practitioners was created using a literature review and expert panels. Competencies were established that were based on clinical categories essential to nurse practitioner practice in the intensive care unit and adapted from existing Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education training, aligned with the precertification nursing curriculum...

BACKGROUND: Structured communication tools for postoperative surgical handover to the intensive care unit (ICU) have shown promise, yet little work has addressed ongoing daily communication between the surgery and ICU teams thereafter. OBJECTIVES: Evaluation of a novel, 2-part communication intervention between surgery and ICU teams focused on postoperative handover and ongoing daily communication. METHODS: A mixed-methods, pre- and postintervention survey study was conducted in a closed quaternary medical-surgical ICU...

Alvin D Jeffery, Mary S Dietrich, Daniel Fabbri, Betsy Kennedy, Laurie L Novak, Joseph Coco, Lorraine C Mion
BACKGROUND: Early warning systems lack robust evidence that they improve patients' outcomes, possibly because of their limitation of predicting binary rather than time-to-event outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To compare the prediction accuracy of 2 statistical modeling strategies (logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards regression) and 2 machine learning strategies (random forest and random survival forest) for in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study with prediction model development from deidentified electronic health records at an urban academic medical center...

BACKGROUND: Family members of patients who die in an intensive care unit (ICU) may experience negative outcomes. However, few studies have assessed the effectiveness of bereavement care for families. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of bereavement follow-up on family members' anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress, prolonged grief, and satisfaction with care. METHODS: A cross-sectional, prospective pilot study of 40 family members of patients who died in 2 tertiary care ICUs...

BACKGROUND: Health care work environments affect patient outcomes, staff satisfaction and retention, and organizational financial viability. The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) Healthy Work Environment Assessment Tool (HWEAT) is a resource for patient care units and organizations to assess the work environment and track progress on their journey to excellence. OBJECTIVE: To validate interprofessional use of the AACN HWEAT across a large free-standing children's hospital...

BACKGROUND: Older adults account for more than half of all admissions to intensive care units; most remain alive at 1 year, but with long-term sequelae. OBJECTIVE: To explore geriatric-focused practices and associated outcomes in older intensive care survivors. METHODS: In a 1-year, retrospective, cohort study of patients admitted to the medical intensive care unit and subsequently transferred to the medicine service, adherence to geriatric-focused practices and associated clinical outcomes during intensive care were determined...

BACKGROUND: Disinfection of frequently touched surfaces in the hospital is critical for providing safe care. Because of their complex intricate surfaces, blood pressure cuffs and electrocardiographic telemetry leads may be harder than other equipment to disinfect. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of 0.5% hydrogen peroxide wipes in cleaning and disinfecting inpatient hospital surfaces, including hook and loop (Velcro) fasteners of blood pressure cuffs and electrocardiographic telemetry leads...

OBJECTIVE: To describe family members' experiences with bereavement after the death of a loved one in the intensive care unit. METHODS: This secondary analysis used an exploratory, descriptive design to study family members' experiences with bereavement. Family members of patients from 2 intensive care units in a tertiary medical center in the western United States participated...

BACKGROUND: Research on many routine nursing interventions requires data collection around the clock each day (24/7). Strategies for implementing and coordinating a study 24/7 are not discussed in the literature, and best practices are needed. OBJECTIVE: To identify strategies incorporated into implementing a nursing intervention trial 24/7, including key lessons learned. METHODS: Strategies to facilitate implementation of a clinical trial of a nursing intervention with patients undergoing mechanical ventilation are shared...

BACKGROUND: Intensive care unit nurses experience moral distress when they feel unable to deliver ethically appropriate care to patients. Moral distress is associated with nurse burnout and patient care avoidance. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate relationships among moral distress, empowerment, ethical climate, and access to palliative care in the intensive care unit. METHODS: Intensive care unit nurses in a national database were recruited to complete an online survey based on the Moral Distress Scale-Revised, Psychological Empowerment Index, Hospital Ethical Climate Survey, and a palliative care delivery questionnaire...

BACKGROUND: Mortality in patients with intra-abdominal sepsis remains high. Recognition and classification of patients with sepsis are challenging; about 70% of critical care specialists find the existing definitions confusing and not clinically useful. OBJECTIVE: To assess the usefulness of the predisposition, infection/injury, response, organ dysfunction (PIRO) concept in surgical intensive care patients with severe sepsis or septic shock due to an intra-abdominal source...
