Rhea Faye D Felicilda-Reynaldo, Maria Kenneally

#7
Heather Gerl, Alexandra Miko, Mandy Nelson, Lori Godaire
This study found large discrepancies between in-bed weights recorded in the medical record and carefully obtained standing weights with a calibrated, electronic bedside scale. This discrepancy appears to be related to inadequate bed calibration before patient admission and having excessive linen, clothing, and/or equipment on the bed during weighing by caregivers.

Alaa Mujallad, Elizabeth Johnston Taylor
Modesty is central to Islamic life. Modesty is exemplified in dress and behavior with persons of the opposite sex. Because ethical nursing care requires respecting patient culture and religiosity, nurses should be able to provide care that respects Muslim interpretations of modesty.

Melissa Angel, Mira Ghneim, Juhee Song, Jason Brocker, Phyllis Hart Tipton, Matthew Davis
A retrospective study was conducted to determine the effects of a well-functioning rapid response team (RRT) within one facility. A well-functioning RRT was associated with fewer cardiac arrests outside critical care settings and decreased critical care length of stay.

Present financial consequences imposed by the Affordable Care Act, along with practice challenges to address rates of 30-day readmission among patients with heart failure, emphasize the need for effective interventions. Healthcare workers must identify effective interventions to reduce readmission of patients with heart failure while providing high-quality care.

Vicki D Lachman
Moral resilience is the ability to deal with an ethically adverse situation without lasting effects of moral distress and moral residue.
