PURPOSE: Accurate body temperature measurement is essential in providing timely care to critically ill patients. Current practice within the Pediatric ICU (PICU) at a Midwestern academic medical center is to obtain axillary temperatures in endotracheally intubated patients. According to research, axillary temperatures have greater variance than other forms of temperature measurement. Research in adult patients show that oral temperature measurement in endotracheally intubated patients is acceptable as the heated gases from the ventilator has no significant effect on measured temperatures...

Pediatric early warning systems have been implemented in many children's hospitals in the hope that they would aid in the early identification of hospitalized children who are clinically deteriorating. A large, recently completed multicenter study found that the use of the Bedside Pediatric Early Warning System (BedsidePEWS) did not decrease all-cause mortality compared to usual care hospitals and did not support the use of the BedsidePEWS to reduce mortality. Earlier studies had found that the use of pediatric early warning systems removed communication barriers and empowered nurses to make independent clinical decisions based on a predetermined multidisciplinary plan...

PURPOSE: In 2014, the Youth Acute Pain Functional Ability Questionnaire (YAPFAQ) was developed to investigate patient's self-rated functional ability during times of acute pain in the inpatient clinical setting. Although it has great potential, the application of this tool has not been made a standard of care. The purpose of this multiple methods study was to determine if, through an educational intervention, hospital staff could consistently document the YAPFAQ in children with sickle cell disease (SCD) during a vaso-occlusive episode...

PURPOSE: This project aims to improve the visibility of the IV site using more adhesive transparent dressings to attain 90% compliance based on the frequent and proper inspection of the IV site and decrease the incidence of IV complications. DESIGN AND METHOD: The project was conducted in a 43-bedded general pediatric ward from March 2016 to February 2017. To address the poor visibility of the IV site due to bandaging caused by poor adhesive strength of the IV securement dressing, a more adhesive securement dressing was introduced...
