BACKGROUND: Participation in a clinical trial is believed to benefit patients but little is known about the post-trial effects on routine hospital-based care. OBJECTIVES: To describe (1) hospital-based, pressure ulcer care-processes after patients were discharged from a pressure ulcer prevention, cluster randomised controlled trial; and (2) to investigate if the trial intervention had any impact on subsequent hospital-based care. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 133 trial participants who developed a pressure ulcer during the clinical trial...

BACKGROUND: Care workers are often exposed to sexual harassment from patients. Research shows that such exposure may have detrimental effects on mental health of the care workers. Inappropriate sexual behaviour from patients is a particular challenge for formal and informal care workers alike. There is a scarceness of studies investigating the experience and the handling of sexual harassment from patients. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the experience and handling of sexual harassment from patients in care work...

BACKGROUND: The dorsogluteal and ventrogluteal intramuscular injection sites both have their use in clinical practice; however, it has not been established in whom one or the other should be preferentially targeted or avoided. There is a need for an evidence-based approach towards site selection for a successful intramuscular injection outcome and to avoid unwanted injection outcomes of inadvertent subcutaneous injection or bone contact. Injection outcome is dependent on injection site subcutaneous fat thickness and muscle thickness; these are likely influenced by gender and anthropometry...

BACKGROUND: Errors in infection control practices risk patient safety. The probability for errors can increase when care practices become more multifaceted. It is therefore fundamental to track risk behaviours and potential errors in various care situations. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe care situations involving risk behaviours for organism transmission that could lead to subsequent healthcare-associated infections. DESIGN & SETTING: Unstructured nonparticipant observations were performed at three medical wards...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure is associated with exacerbated symptoms such as dyspnea and edema and results in frequent hospitalization and a poor quality of life. With the adoption of a comprehensive nursing care and follow-up program, patients with heart failure may exhibit improvements in their self-care capabilities and their hospitalizations may be reduced.

Cynthia Delgado, Dominic Upton, Kristen Ranse, Trentham Furness, Kim Foster
BACKGROUND: The emotional labour of nursing work involves managing the emotional demands of relating with patients, families and colleagues. Building nurses' resilience is an important strategy in mitigating the stress and burnout that may be caused by ongoing exposure to these demands. Understandings of resilience in the context of emotional labour in nursing, however, are limited. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the state of knowledge on resilience in the context of emotional labour in nursing...

BACKGROUND: Family presence during resuscitation is an emerging trend, yet it remains controversial, even in countries with relatively high acceptance of family presence during resuscitation among medical professionals. Family presence during resuscitation is not common in many countries, and medical professionals in these regions are unfamiliar with family presence during resuscitation. Therefore, this study predicted the medical professionals' intention to allow family presence during resuscitation by applying the theory of planned behaviour...
