Over the past ten years there has been a significant rise in the number of people who present to emergency departments with Lyme disease. Although some patients remain asymptomatic many present with a rash around a previous tick bite and others may present with a range of debilitating symptoms that can be problematic if left untreated. Due to the growing prevalence of Lyme disease in the UK and the US this article gives an overview of the vector-borne condition and provides emergency nurses with information about the pathophysiology, prevention, presenting signs and symptoms and management...

A hospital emergency department is unique among medical environments, with risks of medical errors often higher than in other medical units. Previous studies have confirmed that establishing comprehensive clinical practice guidelines in the emergency department reduces medical costs and improves patient safety and satisfaction. Furthermore, having these guidelines positively influences and significantly impacts the work of emergency care professionals. This article addresses the current assessment and treatment of common emergency care, including non-invasive temperature measurements, oxygenated monitoring during procedural sedation and analgesia, postural differences and vital signs monitoring, and difficulties in peripheral vein placement...

It has been reported that the outcomes of care are affected not only by the educational preparation and experience of the practitioner but also by the parameters of his or her practice. Given differences that exist internationally in the enactment of the emergency nurse practitioner (ENP) role, a synthesis of research articles was conducted to examine the educational preparation and experience of ENPs, the role(s) they assume as determined by their patient population, and the outcomes used to evaluate their practice...

There is increasing interest and evidence for the "flipped classroom" as a learner-centered approach to promote active engagement and enhance translation of knowledge into practice. However, there is little published work regarding application of the pedagogical approach to continuing education (CE) for advanced practice providers. The goal of CE is for providers to stay up-to-date with current best practices and skills, yet most CE activities employ teacher-centered, lecture-based methods focused on transmission of knowledge rather than application of knowledge...

METHOD: In 2015, 7 emergency departments across the Netherlands participated in a questionnaire survey of the 113 Suicide Prevention (113 Zelfmoordpreventie) service as a part of the 2014-2017 National Suicide Prevention Agenda. Emergency physicians and nurses and managers answered 25 multiple-choice questions about: (a) current treatment of and contact with patients who attempted suicide, (b) available knowledge and skills of emergency physicians and nurses and (c) after-care for patients who attempted suicide...

INTRODUCTION: Although death is common in emergency departments, there is limited research regarding ED design as an obstacle to end-of-life care. This study identifies emergency nurses' recommendations regarding ways designs have negative or positive impact on care for dying patients and their families. METHODS: A 25-item questionnaire was sent to a national random sample of 500 emergency nurses. Inclusion criteria were nurses who could read English, worked in emergency departments, and had cared for at least 1 patient at the end of life (EOL)...

Preceptors play key roles in nursing students' socialization or formation, and transition from academia to practice. Students still struggle with this transition. Viewing student socialization to nursing as enculturation has provided valuable insights into faculty perceptions of this process. This focused ethnography explored preceptors' perceptions about nursing's culture and their role in bringing students into that culture. Data included semi-structured interviews with preceptor participants from three hospitals in two cities in a single Midwestern state...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to develop a triage competency scale (TCS) for emergency nurses, and to evaluate its validity and reliability. METHODS: Preliminary items were derived based on the attributes and indicators elicited from a concept analysis study on triage competency. Ten experts assessed whether the preliminary items belonged to the construct factor and determined the appropriateness of each item. A revised questionnaire was administered to 250 nurses in 18 emergency departments to evaluate the reliability and validity of the scale...

BACKGROUND: Chemical exposures pose a significant threat to life. A rapid assessment by first responders and emergency nurses is required to reduce death and disability. Currently, no informatics tools exist to process victims of chemical exposures efficiently. The surge of patients into a hospital emergency department during a mass casualty incident creates additional stress on an already overburdened system, potentially placing patients at risk and challenging staff to process patients for appropriate care and treatment efficacy...

Colourless and odourless, each year carbon monoxide is responsible for several thousand cases of poisoning. Often collective, their symptoms are non specific and can result in serious neurological sequelae or even death, if they are not detected in time. The (pre-) hospital emergency nurse plays an important role in the management of these patients, in terms of assessment, treatment and monitoring as well as the organisation of the admittance of victims, categorisation and medical triage. As part of a team, the nurse ensures that the patient enters an adapted, regulated pathway, with the most serious cases being directed towards a hospital equipped with a hyperbaric medicine facility...

BACKGROUND: Within nursing education, simulation has been recognised as an effective learning strategy. Embedding simulation within clinical units has the potential to enhance patient safety and improve clinical outcomes. However it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of this educational technique to support the actual value and effectiveness. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to implement and evaluate an innovative simulation experience for registered nurses. METHODS: A high-fidelity simulation focusing on nursing assessment was conducted with 50 Registered Nurses in an Emergency Department (ED) at a large tertiary referral hospital...
