PURPOSE: Although pediatric patients report venipuncture as their most feared experience during hospitalization, blood sampling from peripheral intravenous accesses (PIVs) is not standard of care. Blood sampling from PIVs has long been considered by healthcare personnel to harm the access. In an effort to minimize painful procedures, pediatric nursing staff conducted a prospective, observational study to determine if blood sampling using existing PIVs resulted in the loss of the access...

PURPOSE: Compare two pediatric fall risk assessment tools (I'M SAFE and Humpty Dumpty) used at the same organization to determine if one is better able to predict which patients fall. DESIGN AND METHODS: Retrospective data was obtained from patients admitted in 2014. Each patient who experienced a fall during hospitalization was matched with two non-fallers based on age and diagnosis. Logistic regression was performed to identify which tool more accurately determines fall risk and reliability testing was completed for the I'M SAFE tool...

The prevalence of childhood obesity in the United States has gained national attention. Almost 18% of US children are obese and in the past 30years, the rate of obesity in children has doubled. A recent research study analyzed data from 10,700 children born in the U.S. in 2001 and followed for 6years. The new study examined racial disparities in childhood obesity and found that rates of overweight and obesity differed significantly, ranging from 29% (whites) to 44% (Hispanics) for boys and 30% (Asians) to 49% (American Indians) for girls...

The constant comparative method, coupled with open, focused, and theoretical coding were used for data analysis...

In other populations, producing art has been shown to significantly reduce anxiety. PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine whether parents' anxiety decreased after coloring while their child is in surgery. DESIGN AND METHODS: A block randomized controlled trial was conducted with a convenience sample of 106 parents of children who were having a scheduled surgery...

DESIGN AND METHODS: This quasi-experimental study used a nonequivalent control group and a pre- and post-test design. Forty-five schoolchildren participated. RESULTS: Children in the experimental group (n=26) received a humor intervention and reported significant differences in physiological response, which was evidenced by heightened salivary immunoglobulin A levels as compared to the control group (n=19)...

PROBLEM: Patients and caregivers frequently report feeling ill-prepared during the transition from hospital to home. Given the privileged position nurses occupy within the health care setting, they are often an appropriate health care professional to lead the discharge process. We aimed to map what is currently known about nurse-led/facilitated discharge programs, interventions, models, or frameworks for the pediatric population. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: We conducted a scoping review following the Joanna Briggs Institute Methodology...

PROBLEM: From 2014 to 2016, device related pressure injuries accounted for 62-81% of all hospital acquired pressure injuries. From January to June 2014, there were 5 BiPAP/CPAP pressure injuries noted, accounting for 3.579 injuries per 1000 ventilator days. In 2015, hospital data revealed that 26.5% of all hospital acquired pressure injuries occurred to prone surgical spine patients. METHODS: Collaborative teams including respiratory therapists and operating room staff were convened and crafted new strategies...

PURPOSE: Studies of familial coping with a child's chronic condition have highlighted psychological distress; family functioning; and quality of life; as issues that demand coping strategies. There are conflicting findings on impact and coping and a paucity of information about the specific coping challenges for parents of a child with heart disease, with few qualitative studies in this area. The purpose of the study was to explore the way parents coped with their child's heart condition as it impacted on different domains of family functioning...

PURPOSE: While there is growing attention to making health care safer, there has been less emphasis on helping health care workers to cope with stressful patient related events (these workers are commonly referred to as second victims). We used the RISE (Resilience In Stressful Events) peer support program at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as a case study for evaluating effectiveness, and identifying barriers to addressing the needs of second victims. DESIGN AND METHODS: The study used a mixed-method approach that included: 1) quantitative analysis of surveys of health care workers in the Department of Pediatrics before RISE implementation and four years after, and 2) content analysis of open-ended commentaries about respondents' experience with seeking second victim support, as well as feedback on RISE...
